Health and Safety Programme

Job description

The efficient and effective management of safety, health, environment and fire across both the nuclear and conventional areas of Devonport is a crucial function of the site’s operation. Over the course of two years, you will work across the conventional safety, occupational hygiene, fire prevention, environment, audit and safety culture departments, providing the full breadth of your specialist knowledge to make a positive contribution to healthy and safe operations.

Where you can join us

Places on our Health & Safety programme for Autumn 2020 are available in our Marine sector. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.

What you'll be doing

Working as part of the multidisciplinary Safety, Health, Environment and Fire (SHEF) Department, you’ll ensure that we plan, advise and assess operations to guarantee that our employees are set up for success in terms of having the right working environment, knowledge, procedures and organisational support to do their jobs and comply with the law, local procedures and best practice. You will undertake a wide variety of challenging and exciting projects which have the potential to cover the full breadth of the department including; risk assessment, incident investigation, sharing and learning from events, assessment of employee exposure, project planning and investigating best available techniques – a rewarding experience that no other employer can provide.

What you'll get out of it

We’ll match your passions to your skills to help you build a rewarding career as a versatile and highly competent Health & Safety professional. When you’re playing such an important role, you need great support to develop – and that’s what you can expect. As well as professional mentoring, we’ll give you the experience needed for working towards a Chartered specialist in topics such as health and safety (IOSH), occupational hygiene (BOHS), environment (IEMA). You’ll also be starting on a competitive salary of £29k - £31k (depending on location, role and qualifications).
