Trainee HSE Inspectors

Job description

We're saving lives. Can you?

Whether you’re ready for a radical career change or your next critical step after university, this is your chance to develop a fascinating and unique career with the Health and Safety Executive that’s unlike any other.

Train to become an Inspector with HSE and you’ll enter an intensive development programme that will fast accelerate your skills from novice to trusted expert. At the pace that suits your learning, you’ll develop the autonomy and the tools you need to lead investigations, from start to finish.

And no, you don’t need to have a background in health and safety. What matters is that you’re driven, decisive, analytical, and you bring excellent judgement and communication skills to the job. Plus, you’re approachable and confident in a wide range of environments. Crucially, you hold a 2:1 honours degree in any subject, which you’ll need to qualify for the post-graduate training programme involved in this role.

Of course, what we do can be extremely challenging – whether we’re speaking with grieving families in their home or we’re giving evidence to a company lawyer in a court of law. But you’ll find the support you receive from us is incredible – and it will be there from the moment you join.

Through an unparalleled network of colleagues and managers, you’ll benefit from their valuable experience and expertise. And your development will continue throughout your career – whether you’re carrying out inspections offsite, or looking to progress in your role. Join us, and you’ll help to make Great Britain one of the safest places to work in the world. You’ll help to save lives, prevent many more injuries, and reduce the economic and social costs of health and safety failures.

In fact, you’ll do some of the most vital work there is, making a visible and significant difference to thousands of people and businesses. And because you’ll work within Government, you’ll enjoy all the rewards of a career with the Civil Service.

With HSE, you can work in a range of diverse locations all over Great Britain. You can study within working hours and you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve.

You can make our world – and yours – a safer, healthier place to be.

You can with the Health and Safety Executive.
