We are currently seeking an experienced Health and Safety Business Advisor with a successful track record within the Health and Safety sector.

  • Proficient in Microsoft Office packages, specifically Microsoft Excel, Word and Outlook (or similar)
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to negotiate effectively
  • Ability to work to deadlines and prioritise workload in a fast paced environment
