GLA to appoint private sector cladding safety expert
The Greater London Authority (GLA) has created a new role for a cladding expert to ensure that unsafe high-rise buildings in the capital are made safe as soon as possible.
The £49,400-a-year post for a senior programme officer in building safety will involve delivering the Private Sector Cladding Remediation Fund (PSCRF). The £200m fund covers the full cost of replacement of unsafe aluminium composite (ACM) cladding on buildings over 18m in height in England.
The GLA said the role would involve managing relationships with building owners, technical advisers and London boroughs.
The GLA is looking for an experienced project manager with experience of managing large budgets and working with professional advisers in the housing or building safety fields.
