Senior Regulatory Scientist: Exposure Team


At the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) we believe everyone has the right to come home safe and well from their job. Our mission is to prevent work related death, injury and ill health.

As a key member of our Chemicals Regulation Division, you will play a leading part in developing the Government’s approaches to assessing the risks that come from exposure to chemicals. You will join a team who assess occupational and other non-dietary exposure of people to pesticides and biocides. Collaborating with chemical and environmental scientists and other technical experts, you will make a vital contribution to data-driven risk assessments. Taking the lead on exposure assessments, you will explain conclusions and decisions to our own and independent scientists, other government departments and relevant stakeholders, both nationally and internationally.

To join us, you will need a degree in a subject such as occupational hygiene, chemistry, biological sciences, environmental sciences, toxicology, agriculture or horticulture. You will also have proven, relevant postgraduate experience. This may be in the occupational or non-dietary assessment of exposure to pesticides, biocides or other chemicals. Alternatively, you may be an experienced occupational hygienist with good technical knowledge of the science. You will certainly have extensive experience of writing and reviewing exposure assessments and producing conclusions about risk management. Good analytical, organisational and leadership skills are also important.

In addition to the rewarding nature of the role itself, you can look forward to excellent benefits in a working culture that encourages inclusion and diversity. Benefits include a highly competitive Civil Service Pension, flexible working options, and learning and development tailored to your role.
