The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is one of the most culturally and economically diverse boroughs in London.  The Royal Borough is less than 5 square miles in area, so you are never far from a famous landmark or a high profile business.   Large scale events include the Notting Hill Carnival and the Chelsea Flower Show.  This diversity presents interesting health and safety challenges as we try to protect our residents, employees and visitors.

As a qualified, confident and motivated Health and Safety Practitioner you will have the ability to effectively manage complex projects, carry out inspections and audits, review risk assessments and investigate major incidents.

You will have exceptional organisation skills and recent experience of supervising officers as well as managing major incident investigations.  In return we will make a real commitment to ensuring that your career development and training needs are met.
