The Company

The expert team of forensic scientists and engineers advise clients across the legal, insurance and commercial sectors, including loss adjusters, insurance brokers, solicitors, police forces, government departments and industrial corporations.

The Fire and Explosions investigator will undertake forensic investigation of a wide range of fires and explosions involving ultimately supertankers and commercial airliners but initially more probably house, office and appliance fires. The fire and explosion investigator position is a technically demanding, challenging and most rewarding role requiring not only a thorough understanding of basic chemistry and physics but also the ability to tackle problems from first principles. They discuss new instructions on technical situations and undertake site visits, to provide reliable, well-researched reports and to serve as expert witnesses.

* Have common sense and be able to analyse information critically.
* Have the ability to communicate technical concepts clearly, both verbally and in writing, to others less informed.
* Be prepared to be flexible and work unpredictable hours, as and where the work demands, including occasionally overseas.
* Be prepared to provide expert witness evidence in Court when required.
* Training and Prospects
* Comprehensive "on-the-job" type training in the conduct of forensic investigation and the preparation of reports for our insurance and legal clients will mostly be provided in-house and will be supplemented on occasion by external courses. Career advancement and reward are based on ability and attitude. There may be opportunities subsequently to transfer to other offices overseas. You will also be a self driven individual who has a strong interest in forensic investigation of a wide range of engineering incidents and accidents.
