We are looking for somebody who has a demonstrable interest in developing a career in health and safety. You may be a graduate in Environmental Health or perhaps have worked in a service or customer role in a public-facing organisation and taken on some safety-related duties.

We will pay for you to complete the NBOSH General Certificate and allow you paid study leave.

You will be happy to interact with our service users and able to cope with people who may display challenging behaviours. You will also need to show how you have taken personal responsibility for developing your own skills and job progression in the past.
