As a Degree Apprentice Fire Safety Engineer within our Building Safety team, we’ll support you through a five-year programme to develop the skills, knowledge and qualifications needed to assess the hazards and risks of fire across our housing stock – supporting us to mitigate potential damage by ensuring proper design & construction principles and fire safety systems are in place to keep our customers safe.
