Your next role

It’s time for the next step.
You’ve earned it.

Are you ready to take the lead in revolutionizing health and safety while shaping a brighter future for the local community?

I'm currently working on behalf of a West Midlands-based local authority that is seeking out a Lead Health & Safety Officer. Your mission: to ensure the safety and well-being of our community. This is no ordinary job – it's a chance to make a real impact! You won't be on your own either, as you'll partner with the existing Lead Health & Safety Officer to oversee the service as a whole.

You'll be an integral part of the Quality and Safety Team in Adult Social Care, and your role is simple yet vital – assessing and championing health and safety compliance in commissioned social care provision.

Picture yourself enhancing safety standards in care homes and day centres, contributing to a safer, healthier local community.

A more detailed Job description/Personal Specification is available upon request.

Contract Details:

  • £28-£35 per hour DOE
  • Initial 3-month contract with the likelihood of extension beyond this
  • Hybrid working - 3 days in the office and 2 from home (or vice versa)
  • End of September Start


  • N.E.B.O.S.H Certificate, N.E.B.O.S.H. Diploma (or studying towards) or NVQ in Occupational Health and Safety Practice (Level 4).
  • Minimum 3 years as a practising health and safety adviser.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Proven experience in delivering health and safety training courses.
  • Track record in developing health and safety policies and procedures.
  • In-depth knowledge of health and safety legislation, and its impact/implementation.
  • A sound understanding of auditing health and safety management systems.

Please note that you'll need an Enhanced Adult DBS for this position should you be successful.

They are looking for someone to start around the end of September so if you feel this is the right opportunity for you or a colleague, please call Michael on 07821 680 247 or email for any enquiries.
