This apprenticeship role combines study with learning practical knowledge of working for an engineering consultancy. Supporting colleagues with a range of tasks, including analysis of information, production of designs and computations, development of Fire Safety Engineering reports on simple and moderately complex projects, site visits & surveys.
The role is that of a learning role, where alongside your apprentice (Level 6) degree, you will also learn by way of hands-on experience by working on live fire engineering projects, and putting into practice the lessons you learn during your time at university. Some key areas that you will perform are:
•Developing your understanding of fire engineering and the role of the fire engineer on projects ranging from inception through to practical completion and into the buildings’ operational life.
•Developing your knowledge whilst working as part of a team within OFR to both understand and apply fire safety legislation and design guidance within the UK as a part of project delivery (for both our Design and Implementation Teams).
•Developing a range of skills to enable you to carry out fire engineering calculations including smoke modelling, evacuation analysis and computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modelling.
• Enhance your knowledge to be able to identify the appropriate fixed fire protection systems to support fire engineering design solutions i.e. automatic fire detection, suppression systems, etc.
• Developing your communication and people skillset. This will actively support and enhance your ability to communicate with clients and internally across a range of skills, abilities and technical knowledge.
• Developing an ability to influence and negotiate (this will follow on from above communication skillsets).
• Developing a practical knowledge of the construction, consultancy and property industry, including relative United Kingdom standards, guidelines and/or acceptable solutions.
• Developing your knowledge of technical software (such as FDS, Brisk, Simulex etc.), and the Microsoft Office suite.
Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm
