About the job
Diverse perspectives and experiences are critical to our success and we welcome applications from all people from all backgrounds with the experience and skills needed to perform this role. We look forward to receiving your application.
The Civil Service embraces diversity and promotes equal opportunities. As such, we run a Disability Confident Scheme (DCS) for candidates with disabilities who meet the minimum selection criteria.
In line with HSEs ways of working, this role offers the exciting opportunity for Hybrid working . Hybrid work is a flexible working model where our colleagues work partly in the physical workplace, and partly remotely – at home or from another workspace. This particular post has the opportunity for a significant period of time to be worked remotely, although there may be some occasional travel to the office, for example to take part in team events or training. We offer a flexible working environment and should you have any questions, we will be more than happy to talk through these at interview.
As the BSR Regulatory Training & Development Lead you will be immersed in the Building Safety Regulator (BSR) workstream as new and emerging regulatory processes and policies are being developed. You will use your subject matter expertise (SME) to develop training materials for each of the new BSR regulatory regimes, working alongside key stakeholders, the Head of Learning and Development Delivery and the wider Learning & Development Team.
In accordance with Dame Judith Hackitt’s recommendations to establish a new, stronger regulatory regime following the Grenfell Tower tragedy, HSE is establishing the new Building Safety Regulator (BSR) and will become the new building control authority for high-rise residential buildings from April 2023. BSR will:
- Ensure the delivery of the new regulatory regime for high-rise residential buildings
- Provide oversight of the whole built environment, including setting standards, providing advice to industry, and advising Government on changes to the scope of the new regime
- Oversee work to drive increased competence of professions and trades working on buildings
- Establish building control as a regulated, unified profession
We are seeking an experienced senior regulatory professional, who will work alongside a growing Learning and Development team to help shape the learning and development program of work, taking complex regulatory information and acting as a key SME to translate this into workable training solutions, factoring in an element of skills transfer to a growing team.
This is an excellent opportunity for a regulatory professional to contribute to an exciting and high-profile area of Government policy. You will help shape the learning offer for the new regulatory regime for the built environment, as well as build an understanding of a regulatory environment that has not traditionally been within HSE’s area of expertise.
As the lead regulatory SME within L&D, you will liaise on a day-to-day basis with both internal and external stakeholders, programme SME’s and the L&D Team to ensure that training needs and competencies are identified, and that training deliverables are targeted and appropriate. You will work to understand precise requirements, and to translate this into a modern learning package. This role will play a key part in building capability across the organisation, developing career pathways and enhancing the regulatory training offer.
This role carries a significant responsibility for driving forward high-profile learning projects, ensuring new learning content is fit for purpose providing future trainees with the skills and capabilities to regulate for the BSR.
Responsibilities will be developed and finalised over time and will include but will not be restricted to:
- Be the BSR lead SME for L&D, engage with BSR project leads, HSE senior leaders, stakeholders and colleagues building your subject expertise of the BSR regulatory regimes as the policy and legislative position develops, understanding what this means for the resulting operational processes, and translating this into learning requirements to support the BSR function.
- Using your insight to design, develop and potentially deliver engaging learning initiatives (mainly technical/regulatory in nature) to support development needs, supported by the wider L&D Team.
- Develop and lead solutions for the new BSR regulatory regimes that will focus on specific requirements as identified through the BSR programme and through stakeholder engagement.
- Work in partnership with the BSR project team, and L&D team. Developing a mechanism for skills transfer into the existing team.
- Foster a positive team culture focused on learning centricity, customer service, productivity, quality and continuous improvement.
As a lead role within the Learning and Development team you will be responsible for using your regulatory expertise to ensure legislative, policy and business process requirements are successfully catered for in the design, delivery and evaluation of learning interventions.
To succeed in this post you will need to be a positive collaborator who will work in partnership with the Head of Learning and Development Delivery for BSR, bringing significant experience of regulatory regimes. You’ll demonstrate the highest standards of professionalism and personal integrity in all your activities and will be passionate about developing people, showing a drive for innovation and improvement.
- Demonstrable experience in regulatory regimes leading to criminal enforcement, including management systems.
- Articulate clear and accurate written and verbal communications.
- Experience of the training cycle, including design of training material is desirable, although not essential, as the key focus of this role is to act as a senior regulatory SME.
We'll assess you against these behaviours during the selection process:
- Seeing the Big Picture
- Delivering at Pace
- Developing Self and Others
- Changing and Improving
- Learning and development tailored to your role
- An environment with flexible working options
- A culture encouraging inclusion and diversity
- A Civil Service pension
