Put your skills to the test and help us keep the UK’s workers safe. Take on exciting projects, challenge yourself and get specialist training. With the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), you can.

At HSE, we work with one goal in mind – to help keep Britain’s workforce safe. We are the independent regulator for work-related health and safety in Great Britain, and our work touches virtually every sector of UK industry. Combining experts from every field, we strive to keep people and their working environments as healthy and secure as possible.

The role offers a wide scope and draws on your skills and expertise while building your experience in a number of areas. Working with a team of technical specialists, you’ll make sure a range of industries across the UK have safe electrical installations. You’ll carry out inspections and analyse incidents, identifying the root causes and bringing in the right support to prevent recurrences. What’s more, you’ll provide expert advice to improve practices and guide legal decisions, as well as develop policy to advance industry-wide standards.

Naturally, you’ll need a breadth of Electrical and Control Engineering experience. This includes an understanding of the design, spec and operation of electrical systems and equipment in the workplace. We’re also looking for candidates who can analyse complex information quickly, make a sound judgement and communicate this to a variety of audiences. But just as much, it’s about building strong working relationships with other HSE colleagues to secure the best outcomes. You should also have a degree in Electrical or Control Engineering (or a related subject) and be either already chartered by the IET or be working towards this. A full UK driving license is also essential.

If you’re a talented and driven electrical engineering expert, we’d love to have you on board. Find out more about the role or apply today.
