Salary £47,755 - £52,866

Ref: 52915

As the independent regulator for work-related health and safety in Great Britain, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is responsible for protecting the nation’s workforce.

With every day presenting you with new challenges, you will investigate incidents and accidents relating to ionising and non-ionising radiation, and you will respond to complaints and concerns made to the HSE. Identifying failings, you will determine where improvements need to be made, and you will take appropriate intervention measures to ensure your recommendations are being implemented. Seeing to it that employers and organisations are meeting legal standards, you will support HSE investigators in their work, and you will be instrumental in shaping future policies impacting on the sector. With the chance to undertake NEBOSH accredited legal training, you will develop the skills you need to enforce the law and promote the best possible standards across the sector.

You will have exceptional communication and influencing skills, with the initiative to make sound evidence-based decisions. You will be able to translate complex technical information into clear reports for non-technical audiences, including Government departments. On a practical level, you will have a degree-level qualification in a physical science (or equivalent) and you will have a thorough knowledge of the Ionising Radiations Regulations and Radiation (Emergency Preparedness and Public Information) Regulations. You will either be a Registered Clinical Scientist, or your professional experience in radiation protection will be complemented by chartered membership of the Society for Radiological Protection (CRadP). You’ll also need the flexibility to stay away from home when required, and you will have a full UK driving license.
