The Building a Safer Future Charter (BSF Charter) has been created to promote an urgent and positive culture and behaviour change in the safety of the built environment. It is about putting people’s safety first in how we plan for, design, build, maintain, and look after the safety of the buildings we live, work or play in and protect those that use them.
This role offers flexibility and would suit those looking for a part-time position or for a role that fits around existing commitments.
We are seeking exceptional individuals who have extensive experience in a senior level position within high hazard sectors and/or within construction and have proven high level audit/assessment expertise.
Assessors are required to have the credibility and gravitas to manage discussions with C-suite level clients, as well as gain trust and insight from a range of participants in the entire construction value chain. A detailed knowledge of operating in a high hazard safety context is essential.
Assessors are self-employed and remunerated per organisational assessment and are able to carry out as many or few assessments as they would like, initially subject to the number of organisations signing up. Assessors will need to be able to travel freely around the UK (once restrictions are lifted) and will be reimbursed for travel. Assessors will need to provide their own mobiles and IT equipment, ideally with 4G for remote access. A high level of IT skills would be preferable. Assessors must have their own professional indemnity insurance to a level of £1 million.
Assessors receive a prorated day rate from £550 per day, as well as 50p per mile travelling costs. It is expected that assessment of smaller companies may take 2 days, but for larger companies it may take 5-6 days or longer. The fee paid also covers the administration involved with arranging the visit, writing up the subsequent report and dealing with any subsequent queries from the company or the Charter’s administration office.
Prospective Assessors should appreciate that the process of selecting and appointing new Assessors can be protracted, often taking several weeks to complete, as this involves both assessment and observation in the role. Ideally, the BSF are looking for a geographical spread of Assessors across the UK. If you are successful after the selection process but there is no vacancy in your geographical area, we will ask to keep your details on file for when there is a suitable vacancy, with due regard to data protection and GDPR.
Please submit your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
by 5pm on Tuesday 6th April 2021. Please also include a covering letter that shows how you meet the competencies listed in the job description, as BSF use an equal opportunities selection process to shortlist candidates for interview against these. Whilst we will endeavour to respond to everyone who applies, if you do not hear from us within one calendar month, please assume you have not been shortlisted.
We are hoping to interview shortlisted candidates from Monday 12th April 2021 via zoom, with a view to starting inductions from the 17th April ready for the soft launch the 26th April.
