Recruitment for new Director of Building Safety begins
A new Director of Building Safety role has been created on our leadership team and recruitment starts today.
The new post will sit on our Senior Leadership Team (SLT) and will play a crucial role in transforming our building safety function and making sure that we meet current and new legislation and regulatory requirements.
The change will see Paul Baker, currently our Director of Asset Management and Safety, become our Director of Assets. Meanwhile some teams, including our Health and Safety Team, will move under the new building safety directorate. All colleagues affected by the change have been informed.
Mads Nelson, our Chief Operating Officer, said: “Building safety is a hugely important part of our work and the requirements of the Building Safety Bill will be significant and wide-ranging for us.
“Our assets function is already huge and there are plenty of big challenges in this area of the business too, including the zero carbon agenda. We need a new director of building safety to lead this extremely important function, rather than group these crucial disciplines together.
“We’re looking for an experienced and passionate professional who wants to make a difference and who can bring a fresh perspective to our organisation.
“This is an exciting role and we look forward to seeing who applies.”
The deadline for applications is 3 January and interviews will take place on 12 January.
