We are Citation Fire and Electrical, part of the Citation Group and we are far from your average compliance company. The Citation Group is made up of 10 businesses, that proudly deliver services that our 50,000 clients need, want and value. Our mission is to be the company that colleagues and clients want to work for and with. It’s a really exciting time to join our business and come grow with us.
We’ve just entered our 3rd wave of private equity ownership alongside KKR and Hg Capital and don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon. This also means as the company grows over the next 3 to 5 years, you’ve got the opportunity to do so too! If the prospect of this excites you… good, you’re the right type of person for us.
In this key role, you will work with key stakeholders and teams right across the business. It is a wide and varied role with bags of opportunity and support. With continual double-digit growth year on year, our business thrives on people with vision, determination, agility, focus and brilliant people skills.
Your primary responsibility will be to undertake technical auditing of Fire Risk Assessment Reports that have been completed and submitted by field-based assessors.
Typically, fire risk assessments vary in complexity and will range between small shop and office type businesses, up to and including large multiuse, high rise buildings that may include engineered solutions to achieve compliance with current regulation.
As a business, we understand that in order to remain at the top of your game for auditing, you need to keep up to date with what’s going on in the world of assessing – so we have decided to offer the option of a “hybrid” role so you have the capability to continue to assessing to those who are interested.

Scheme. I.e. Institute of Fire Engineers, FRACS, etc.
