Joint Health and Safety Service Supervisor

Contract Type:  Permanent (37 hours)

Salary:  £35,934 - £37,849 Grade 11

Based at:   Humberside Fire and Rescue Service Headquarters,

Summergoves Way, Hull, HU4 7BB


Humberside Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS) is looking to recruit three highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals to work within their Health, Safety & Environment team at both Supervisor and Advisor levels.

A recent collaboration agreement with Humberside Police (HP) to provide a Joint Health and Safety Service (JHSS) has presented an exceptional opportunity for innovative and creative health & safety professionals to work for a progressive Emergency Service in roles that are critical to the continual improvement of the health and safety management systems of both blue-light organisations.

The collaboration agreement is set to evolve significantly over the next three years and these opportunities offer exposure to exciting and diverse environments with no two days being the same.

To be considered for these positions you must be qualified to a minimum of NEBOSH General Certificate or preferably National Diploma level with history of working in a similar environment. Proficiency in accident investigation is essential as are a high standard of computer literacy and effective communication skills.

Successful applicants must be adaptable and able to consistently display behaviour in line with the organisational principles of HFRS. These include leadership, dependability, innovation and passion.

Essential key personal qualities required for both roles are:

  • Self-motivation and confidence
  • Excellent organisational abilities
  • Strong interpersonal skills but equally aware effective is preferable to popular
  • A decisive pragmatic approach
  • Flexibility
  • The ability to organise, plan and deliver target goals
  • Able to identify relevant factors and provide effective solutions in complex situations.

  • Trend analysis to identify current safety priorities.
  • Carrying out risk assessments, audits, inspections and surveys.
  • Promotion of a positive safety culture.
