Pragma & Associates

We are seeking to recruit someone who specialises in the field of asbestos with the attitude and capabilities to succeed in the challenging and rewarding expert witness field. This is an opportunity to secure an integral position in a growing business. Experience as an expert witness is not necessary as full training will be provided.

In the short-medium term you will be mentored in a team environment to provide expert witness reports, relating to civil claims involving exposure to asbestos.

As an existing expert in your field, you will have the opportunity to also provide consultancy to duty holders and other clients with asbestos management responsibilities. In the event that you also have broader occupational hygiene experience, then we can offer consultancy opportunities in other areas within your field.
