Job Description

REF: 15419
Posted: 12 March 2020
Closes: 12 April 2020

King's College London is one of the top 10 UK universities in the world (QS World University Rankings 2018) and the fourth oldest in England. King's has more than 31,000 students from 150 countries and more than 8,500 employees. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), King’s was ranked 6th nationally.

We are proud of our prestigious estate at the heart of London, which covers a varied portfolio including the historic Strand Campus (encompassing Bush House & Somerset House), as well as cutting edge medical research and teaching facilities across our diverse campuses in Guy’s and St Thomas’, Denmark Hill and Waterloo. The Strand Campus is part way through a programme of redevelopment, which includes a major renovation of the Quad Building (£47 million).

Reporting to the Assurance Manager, the Fire Safety Assurance Support Manager will be responsible for conducting reviews of the Fire Risk Assessments across all buildings / spaces occupied by King’s College London (KCL). You will also act as custodian and manage the fire strategy technical building plans for the directorate. In addition to providing fire safety building plans for projects, you will also have oversite of fire compliance projects, such as fire door remedial, fire stopping compartmentation works and fire alarm detection replacement programmes.

The successful candidate will ideally possess a fire risk assessment qualification and membership of a relevant fire professional body. You will have a thorough knowledge of fire safety legislation, Building Regulations, British Standards and have experience in conducting Fire Risk Assessments. Demonstrable experience of risk management and fire strategy is key in conjunction with experience of providing fire safety training and toolbox talks/safety briefs to non-fire safety professionals.

This role would suit individuals currently in a similar intelligent client role within a public sector organisation such as the NHS or local government. Alternatively, fire professionals with a background in consultancy looking to move across to the client-side.

The competitive benefits package includes 27 days annual leave + 4 closure days (over Easter and Christmas) + bank holidays. The USS pension scheme has generous employer contributions. Details of the wider benefits of working at KCL can be found at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/hr/staffbenefits/index.aspx
