BSF are seeking to appoint additional contractors to join the existing team of Assessors.
Building a Safer Future (BSF) 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.
The role offers flexibility and would suit those looking for a part-time position or a role that fits around existing commitments. If you are a current or retired experienced industry professional, with a wide and comprehensive knowledge of either the UK construction industry or another high-hazard, safety-related industry where similar assessment techniques are used, then this role is ideal for you.
Assessors are self-employed and remunerated per organisational assessment. They can carry out as many or as few assessments as they wish, subject to the number of organisations registering.
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 should have the ability and skills to use various forms of distance communication including video-conferencing and document sharing to conduct validation discussions and review data and evidence. The role is primarily remote, but assessors will need to be available for occasional travel around the UK. Travel costs will be reimbursed.
Assessors must also have their own professional indemnity insurance to a level of £2 million.
Assessors will receive a prorated day rate, plus any travel expenses. The fees paid also cover the administration involved in arranging meetings, writing up the subsequent reports and dealing with any queries from both the company and the BSF office.
There will be a full induction programme, of up to one day, for which Assessors will be reimbursed. Assessors will be subject to annual review to ensure they are maintaining high levels of quality and professionalism, and an excellent understanding of the Champion assessment process.
