S.I.9 Job Opportunities: Building Control Technical Director €75-90k p.a.

by Bregs Blog admin team


The BRegs Blog does not usually post up job vacancies but the following one received on 9th October 2014 may be of interest to our readers.

Given the very low take-up of roles for Assigned and Design Certifier generally, there is a gap in the market at present for specialist certifiers. A number of specialist firms,  along with individuals, have emerged to undertake the new roles under S.I.9 (see previous posts below).

As the largest architectural firms in the state are not undertaking the new roles of Design and Assigned Certifier under S.I.9 there may be significant business opportunities, for foreign- based certifier firms from the UK in particular, to set up a similar “approved inspector” service in Ireland. Given that most state agencies such as the OPW and other Local Authorities are refusing to undertake the new certifier roles there may be significant business opportunities for specialist certifier firms in the arena of public projects also.

One benefit to a foreign-based specialist certifier firm would be limiting Certifier liability in the short term while the vague wording in the legislation is established in the courts system.

The following is an email received advertising one such position. If you are interested please contact the person listed and not the  BRegs Blog.

Good Afternoon,

I hope you are well and have had a good week too.

I have just registered a new Technical Director / Associate Director Building Control-based appointment in Dublin offering a starting salary of £60,000 pa to £70,000 pa plus competitive company benefits.  This newly-created position will require the successful candidate to lead, drive and develop an entirely new business within the Republic of Ireland that will be dedicated to the enforcement and improvement of Building Regulations across the country within a Private Sector entity.

Candidates will already be based or have the capability to be based in Dublin, as well as extensive experience within the Building Control, Building Surveying, Engineering or Architectural sectors.  Applications are encouraged from Senior-level staff, as well as those professionals already working at Associate, Partner and Director levels, who have the drive and ambition to take this new business venture within an already established organisation forward for the next 15-20 years.  High levels of Technical knowledge are not a necessity but the ability to network, develop and drive business forward certainly is.

For more information on this exclusive appointment, please email me at paul.tomkies@britishresourcinggroup.co.uk and I shall be more than happy to provide you with further details on request.  The closing date for applications will be Friday 24thOctober 2014.

In the meantime, have a good afternoon and I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Kind Regards,

Paul Tomkies
