LABC Trainee Building Control Recruitment
Announcement from Local Authority Building Control
“Some of you will be aware that LABC has been working for some time on initiatives to bring in new recruits to public service building control.
We all know that the building control profession has an aging demographic, and that the requirements of the Building Safety Act will bring additional responsibilities to building control, alongside more stringent requirements for Registration of the profession and Operational Standards and Rules for both public and private sector. All these factors mean that we desperately need to bring new people into the profession, to ensure that we have enough competent people to make the proposed building safety regime work – so that people are safe and feel safe in their homes, where they work and where they play.
We are seeking around 150 new people across England from a wide and diverse range of backgrounds, ages and experience. We are working closely with organisations that support ex-military personnel and with sixth form colleges and other careers services.
New recruits will be taken on a 3-year contract with attractive pay plus fully funded education up to degree level. They will be seconded into local authority building control where they will gain their experiential learning. After 3 years they will be released for permanent employment in local authority teams.
I’m delighted to say that the application process has gone live today, and we will be running assessment centres in London, Manchester and Birmingham in the next few weeks.
I would be very grateful if you could share a link on your social media / comms channels to get information about this opportunity out to as many people as possible.
