The business has grown significantly in the past 5 years, increasing their annual turnover from £12m to more than £35m. They have a proud reputation for design and build projects and I am pleased to represent them exclusively in recruiting such an important role.

Your new role

As Health & Safety Officer, you will work within a 70 mile radius of their Head Office in Fareham. The role will develop over the next few years, but the focus will remain on both a strategic and practical approach to H&S. 80-90% of your time will be dedicated to a wide variety of clients, with 10-20% working with a key client (a leading hotel chain).

The working hours are flexible, but typically between 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday (40 hours/week).
