The skills/experience/qualifications you’ll need:

  • A qualified environmental health officer or holder of Higher Certificate in Food Premises Inspection with EHORB/EHRB registration 
  • Membership of professional body such as CIEH 
  • Relevant additional qualification e.g. NEBOSH 
  • Experience of inspecting /auditing food businesses requiring in depth knowledge of legislation and guidance
  • Experience of investigating food poisoning complaints 
  • Ability to progress projects in a timely manner 
  • Demonstrate ability to make and implement decisions 
  • Proven excellent team working skills 
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills 
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills 
  • Experience of report writing 
  • Experience of presenting reports in various forums
  • Some nights away (travel/accommodation paid)


And this is what the successful Health & Safety Consultant will get in return

  • A competitive salary depending on experience
  • 25 days + bank holidays
  • Pension
  • The latest training and development
  • Career development opportunities
