Health & Safety Consultant

Full time | Midlands | Between £30,000 – £43,000 per annum.

About The Role

SRC are recruiting for a Safety Consultant to support their growing portfolio of work within the renewable energy sector.

As we are a small, but growing, independent business you will benefit from training, development and mentoring that larger companies perhaps cannot so readily provide. This is a superb opportunity to learn and develop from some highly experienced safety professionals with many years’ experience in the renewables sector.

You will work under the direction of our experienced consulting team to support the delivery of a wide range of technical tasks on diverse and interesting engineering projects as highlighted above.

However, this opportunity is much broader than the support to individual projects. We want you to roll your sleeves up and support the team in building a highly successful consulting business where you will share in our success. The candidate will need to travel to the office in Derby a minimum of two days a week.

Skills, knowledge and relevant qualifications

Ideally you will hold one of the following qualifications in Health and Safety:

  • Degree level qualification in Occupational Health & Safety Management
  • NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Health & Safety
  • NEBOSH Diploma
  • NEBOSH General Certificate

Ideally you will have 2-5 years industrial experience in some of the following areas as listed below.

However, recently qualified persons looking to get a foot hold within the world of Health and Safety should not be put of applying. We recognise that those in the early stages of their career have some of the greatest potential to learn, develop and grow with SRC. If feel you can work with dedication and passion to gain the right experience, we want to hear from you.
