For almost 30 years, ACAD has been promoting best practice at the forefront of the Licensed Asbestos Industry.  Based in Darlington, ACAD operates the NVQ centre for the Asbestos Industry and represents our members with HSE, and in the wider construction industry they are represented through our membership of Build UK.  ACAD is also a part of TICA, and works closely with our on-site Awarding Organisation, IETTL.  ACAD has now reached a point where we are looking to reshape the association to meet the evolving challenges driven by our substantial membership growth in recent times.

The first role we are looking to recruit for is an individual to develop our extensive training and qualifications.  This role would include training delivery, and responsibility for the ongoing development of our highly regarded training, delivered face to face and remotely, as well as overseeing external training delivery.  In addition, the ideal candidate will be a qualified assessor and Internal Quality Assurer, and will take a leading role in the NVQ centre for the Asbestos industry.

Whilst candidates who are qualified in these roles are preferred, applications from those looking to develop into elements of this role will also be actively considered.

The Association is also looking for a senior site auditor who will take over responsibility for our nationwide audit programme including quality assurance of our network of auditors.  Good experience of Licensed Asbestos work is essential, and experience of Licence renewals would be an advantage.

In addition to these more senior positions, ACAD has vacancies for trainer/auditors/assessors throughout the UK who are experienced in any of these roles and would like to develop their career with a supportive employer.  In addition, we are happy to receive applications from individuals without direct experience of these roles who have a good background within the Asbestos industry and would like to develop via trainee roles to these positions.

For all these roles, you will have an enthusiastic, self-motivated and flexible approach to work.  You will have good communication skills, take pride in your work and relish a challenge. Previous applicants are encouraged to reapply.

ACAD offers extremely rewarding and varied career opportunities with a supportive employer who will invest in your continued personal development.  Competitive salaries and benefits including 25 days annual leave are available for all roles.

In the first instance applicants should get in touch with the ACAD Manager, Graham Warren, on 07787 507 215 for an informal discussion about the roles, or you can submit a copy of your current CV to
