Head of Building Regulations Policy

Salary: £64,520 to £75,480 (Welsh Government reserves the right to offer up to the top of the pay scale for exceptional candidates that suitably demonstrate the extensive knowledge and experience required. in addition, a further recruitment and retention allowance of up to 5% may also be considered for exceptional candidates only and are in no way guaranteed.)

Location: Pan Wales. This role can be based at one of the offices in Cardiff and Merthyr Tydfil. Colleagues are expected to work from a blend of locations, including some time working at home, as required. The agreed office location will be the designated place of work and any remote or home working arrangement does not constitute a change to your designated place of work or contractual terms and conditions. The successful candidate will be expected to pay for their commute to their normal place of work. Occasional travel to other offices and across Wales with overnight stays may be required. Travel to other locations that are not your chosen normal place of work will be paid for by Welsh Government.

The post offers the opportunity to be involved in the implementation of the Building Safety Bill, which is intended to deliver an improved system.  The role will be responsible for a team of specialist, policy and administrative staff dealing with building control policy underpinned by the Building Act 1984/ Building Regulations 2010 and statutory guidance.

Following the Grenfell tragedy and subsequent 2018 Hackitt ‘Building a Safer Future report’ review of building safety, Welsh Ministers have embarked on a fundamental programme of change intended to deliver a building control system that provides confidence in the way higher risk buildings are designed, constructed and occupied.

Applicants should hold a recognised construction professional qualification e.g. a registered architect, chartered engineer or chartered building control surveyor or equivalent.
