Primary Authority Account Manager HFRS2470692
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Fire Safety Specialist role within the Business Fire Safety department of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS).
HFRS have been the country’s leading exponent of Primary Authority since its acceptance into the fire sector in April 2014. We continue to lead the way in terms of partner numbers and diversity and our innovations within Government guidelines.
All of our Partners are familiar national and international organisations. The successful applicant will be expected to work with the senior management teams of these partners, across the UK as a Primary Authority Account Manager giving nationally adopted fire safety advice and liaising with other Fir Services UK wide.
You will be responsible for generating new partnership accounts and for the ongoing management of those accounts once established. This excellent opportunity will be particularly attractive to anyone seeking experience of: partnership working; working closely with other Enforcing Fire Authorities; managing change within external organisations; planning and implementing; and wider political and organisational awareness.
Applications are invited from competent fire safety professionals, with a recognised fire safety qualification and sector specific experience, with the self motivation and enthusiasm to work autonomously with senior managers of large businesses on a national level.
We are seeking applicants with excellent inter-personal skills and an awareness of the ‘supportive regulation’ ethos. A high level of technical fire safety knowledge is essential and an appreciation of the wider economic and political landscape would be advantageous.
Additional training will be provided to the successful applicants as appropriate.
