Merseyside Fire & Rescue Authority Protection Department is  introducing and developing a Fire Engineering Department as outlined in Merseyside Fire and Rescue Authority’s IRMP Supplement 2019 – 2021.

We are looking for an experienced and talented individual to work with us on this exciting proposal.

Currently MFRA’s responses to Planning Applications and Building Regulations consultations are handled by our in house Planning and Building Regulations Team, with our Partnership work under the Primary Authority Scheme handled separately. We intend to bring these two work streams together to pool expertise and increase efficiency.

The Built Environment changes rapidly in terms of complexity and design. We are looking to provide Fire Engineering support to Fire Safety Inspectors who increasingly deal with Fire Engineered Solutions in premises as part of our Risk Based Inspection Programme.

The successful candidate will possess a fire engineering degree / Level 5 Diploma in Fire Safety or equivalent. (We will also consider applications from individuals who can demonstrate continuous professional development in Fire Safety towards completing a Fire Engineering Degree).

Experience of working at an organisational level within Fire Safety Management and Primary Authority Schemes are essential.

Be part of the future with Merseyside Fire & Rescue Authority. You will work in a professional and dedicated team which encourages collaboration, creative thinking and close team working. We offer a competitive package with some great benefits which include generous flexible working arrangements, access to free on-site gym, contributory pension, excellent Occupational Health services and easy access from motorway (M57/M58) and Merseyrail network.
