What we’re looking for
A deep understanding of Health & Safety legislation would be heavily beneficial. Applying the principles of these laws is fundamental to every role in our department. For those early in their careers, we provide the support to develop their understanding of the legislation we work with. Due to the evolving nature of health and safety, there’s always more to learn and new ideas on the best way to protect our staff, so you’ll be developing alongside your colleagues.
Attention to detail is key, our site checks need to be rigorous and nothing can be overlooked, one slight breach of regulations could cause issues across the business. Strong communication skills are also essential, from collaborating within the team, with colleagues across the business and external stakeholders. You’ll need to build great working relationships and co-operate effectively to keep people safe and the business running efficiently.
