Volunteer Positions:

We are looking for two
Competence Standards Managers

With the growing impact of legislation and a continuously developing Safety Management System (SMS), there is a requirement for two persons, one to be responsible for the routine management of the Safety Critical Work training and associated competence management systems applicable to locomotive operations staff and the second for signalmen, guards, shunters and station staff.

The successful applicants will have a good knowledge of modern training and competence assessment systems and be committed to developing a strong culture of compliance to ensure the requirements of the SMS are met. It will be essential to develop effective working relationships with functional inspectors and other key operating department players who are embraced by the SMS and the railway safety critical work (RSCW) regulations.

These posts could suit retired or partially retired trainers, assessors or indeed existing qualified inspectors who will probably already hold trainer, assessor or similar qualifications and have experience of the skill sets in the disciplines concerned. A keen desire to influence this important area of compliance using interpersonal skills appropriate to departments that consist completely of volunteers is essential.

These are also volunteer posts that carry no remuneration or specific hours of duty although the successful applicants will require sufficient time and flexibility to be present at the railway to effectively undertake these roles.

If you would like to know more about these opportunities informally in the first instance then please contact Lisa Boyle.
