Location: Witney, Oxfordshire
Hours: Typically 09:00 – 17:00 (Mon-Fri)
Salary: Competitive with comprehensive benefits package including profit shares
Start Date: Jul/Aug 2023
DustScanAQ are pleased to offer the position of Occupational Exposure/Environmental Consultant. The position is mainly desk/office based in Witney (Oxfordshire, UK), but will require regular site-based work.
We are a small, independent, employee-owned environmental consultancy firm that specialises in dust and air quality monitoring and assessment.
As an employee-owned business our core values are teamwork, innovation and integrity and we pride ourselves on having a culture of transparency, empowerment, and respect for staff at all levels.
We are currently looking for applicants to join our growing air quality and dust consultancy team, specifically to assist with carrying out occupational aerosol (dust, fibres, VOCs etc.) and gas exposure assessments and indoor air quality monitoring surveys. Preferably, applicants should have 1-2 years previous relevant experience and be an existing affiliate of the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS).
Our consultancy team undertakes occupational exposure assessments in line with HSE methodology for a wide range of clients and industries across the UK. A key part of your role will be undertaking site-based monitoring and surveys and producing detailed follow-up reports with reference to COSHH (EH40) and/or other appropriate regulations, interpretation of monitoring results and observations and recommendations for improving controls. You will be involved throughout the projects including assisting with initial enquiries and quotations and closing out at the end of the projects.
Assisting in other areas of the business may be required at times including occasionally installing and servicing ambient and indoor dust and air quality monitoring equipment.
Applicants must have GCSE's (or equivalent) in maths, science and English and a full UK driving license. A relevant degree (minimum 2:1 BSc/BEng or MSc), such as Occupational Hygiene or Environmental Science is preferable.
Attention to detail is essential in this role, as are excellent client facing/communication skills and the ideal candidate will be confident working both individually (on site) and in a team environment. As we’re a small, specialist environmental consultancy we also value individuals who develop an interest in all aspects of our business and understand the spirit of employee-ownership.
