Our Huntingdon office in Cambridgeshire is headed up by James Lane.  James intends to build out his team with additional skills and capabilities.   Within the office he currently has design and engineering, fire assurance and risk management capability, but would like to strengthen the team with someone who has strong construction or building pathology knowledge.

As a senior member of staff, you will be responsible for developing and providing leadership within the fire discipline to a team of fire consultants, surveyors and engineers.

As you will act as Project Manager for a variety of project types, at different stages of development (design, construction and in-use), you will need a broad range of technical competence and be comfortable leading and managing work winning, project planning, performance management and reporting from proposal acceptance, initiation to project close. You will prepare, and develop fire strategies, calculations, analysis, schematics, drawings, diagrams, models, specifications and other documents relating to the project.
