About the Team

The Government has announced that OPSS will host the new national regulator for construction products, driving the improvement of safety and performance standards and ensuring compliance with construction product regulations. This will involve collaborating with our partners in Government, local authorities and elsewhere to ensure that public confidence in the safety and performance of construction products is improved and maintained. OPSS, working closely with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, is currently preparing for this exciting new role.

About the Role

This is an exciting opportunity for a flexible and results-oriented individual with the energy to make positive change happen within and beyond OPSS. In this purposeful, and multi-faceted role you will play a part in building our reputation as an exemplar regulator. Candidates will need to be flexible in approach and prepared to lead on a range of tasks. You will hold specific responsibilities for planning and developing our regulatory capacity, capability and operational approach. It is envisaged that the role will, over the next twelve months and in accordance with the Parliamentary timetable, transit to that of an Enforcement and Compliance Team Leader leading a team of Regulatory Compliance Officers. The role will suit people with experience of operating within a regulatory compliance environment: for example, either as a regulator or as one with a role in ensuring goods, services or systems meet regulatory and other standards.

The post is based in Birmingham. When the team is operational, some travel – possibly to any UK location - is likely to be required.
