Title: H&S Advisor - Tech to Grad Scheme
Salary: £25,000 - £35,000 including travel allowance
We are Citation. We offer colleagues and clients an opportunity they will not gain at many other businesses. We are interested in growth, investment and service excellence, we have never and will never grow our business by cost-cutting or tying people up in bureaucracy. We don't do politics - we want people focused upon actions and delivery. We don't do micro-management - we empower, support and innovate. We are leaders, not empire builders and we love our business.
This is a really exciting time to join us. Across our group companies, we have over 60,000 clients who love us, need us and want to buy more from us. Having acquired 10 businesses over the last 3 years which offer products and services that our clients need and want; we're only interested in future growth; we're not finished yet.
We are one of the UK's biggest providers of Health&Safety, HR, Employment Law and ISO services to businesses. We are far from your average service provider as our colleagues bring their great personalities to work, not just their policies!
Why Citation? Why now?
Who would believe we'd still talking about Covid nearly 2 years later - but, we are. You might have had your working life totally flipped on its head. You might be working and have realised your business can't offer you what you need either personally or culturally anymore. Or you might have been furloughed throughout the lockdowns and had time to think, so now is the time for a change.
We have entered our 3rd wave of private equity ownership alongside KKR and Hg Capital and don't plan on slowing down anytime soon. This also means as the company grows over the next 3 to 5 years, you've got the opportunity to do so too! If the prospect of this excites you… good, you're the right type of person for us.
In this key role, you will work with key stakeholders and teams right across the business. It is a wide and varied role with bags of opportunity and support. With continual double-digit growth year on year, our business thrives on people with vision, determination, agility, focus and brilliant people skills.
Launched in 2017, this will be the sixth year we have been on the lookout for the future talent of H&S. This should put your mind at ease, we know how to make training, studying, and working full-time work; both for you and for us.
If you have used your downtime in the many lockdowns of the last 2 years to upskill yourself or finish those qualifications, you never had time to do; good on you. This scheme is perfect to put all that theoretical knowledge into practice.
Citation decided that in addition to bringing on board highly experienced consultants, we also want to assist people out there who are screaming for a chance in health and safety. This scheme will take onboard TechIOSH level candidates and over a set period develop you, via the NCRQ Diploma in Applied Health and Safety, to reach GradIOSH status.
* During this programme you will spend time at our fabulous head office in Wilmslow, learning from our technical content and helpline teams. Alongside this, you will have the exposure to field consultancy working alongside several of our competent and brilliant H&S Consultant's.
* Once out of the programme, the support doesn't stop there! At GradIOSH status, we will place you into our
IPD/CPD programme and support you to achieve CMIOSH status whist working as an H&S Field Consultant.
What we want from you is your desire to progress in health and safety in a role where your technical skills are important but so is your personality.
Is this too good to be true?
As soon as you get GradIOSH, it doesn't mean it's all over - you will still have a role, you will have just graduated into a full-time, field-based consultant.
If you're thinking, I've got the necessary qualifications and knowledge - but they'll never look at me because of my current role as it's not H&S related, apply anyway, what have you got to lose?
What if your long-term goal isn't just H&S?
Perfect, we want aspiring future Fire Risk assessors or Electrical Safety professionals to apply. There aren't many other companies who could offer you the continuous development like we can. We would love you to progress through the business and be able to look after our clients regarding several compliance services they receive from us.
All we need from you is:
* A minimum of Tech IOSH status, which will need to be provided
* A passion for your future career in Safety
* Valid driving licence, depending on location
Don't delay in applying!
