Occupational Health Inspector


At HSE, we work with one goal in mind – to help keep Britain’s workforce safe and healthy. Our work touches virtually every sector of Great Britain’s industry. We don’t just inspect workplaces and enforce the law. We campaign for better risk control, providing guidance, regulations, crucial research and statistics, and specialist products and services both here and overseas.

Our occupational health specialists work as Regulators across Great Britain in a whole range of essential industries with thousands of workers, to ensure that work is managed safely. In this role, you can utilise your considerable professional knowledge to influence not only individual employers but whole industry sectors.

Diverse perspectives and experiences are critical to our success and we welcome applications from all people from all backgrounds with the experience and skills needed to perform this role. We look forward to receiving your application.


The role

As an Occupational Health Inspector, you’ll make sure employers safeguard their worker’s health across a range of essential industries. The role is an excellent opportunity to broaden your knowledge and skills but also add crucial experience to your record. You’ll investigate and assess companies to control health risks and make sure they comply with the law, while providing expert advice and developing policy for the sector at large. You’ll also work alongside other HSE colleagues and instruct team members on legal requirements and best practice.


Your background

This role is highly specialised and technical, so you’ll need to demonstrate considerable experience in occupational health. Strong stakeholder management skills and analytical skills are also essential, along with decision-making under pressure and be able to create detailed reports. You should also be a registered specialist community public health nurse in occupational health (SCPHN - formerly part 3 of the NMC Register) and hold a full UK driving license.



There’s a lot to look forward to here beyond the generous Civil Service pension and our commitment to flexible working. We put a high value on ongoing personal and professional development and offer access to learning opportunities tailored to your role. You can also expect annual leave of least 25 days.

Please submit your CV, with a suitability statement of up to 750 words, outlining relevant experience and explaining how you meet the requirements of the role.
