Need advice on careers and apprenticeships?
Speak to an advisor today (8am-10pm)
SHEQ advisors provide advice and guidance on all health and safety, environment and quality matters across an organisation.
Salaries typically range depending on location and level of responsibility. Salaries and career options improve with chartered status.
An Honours Degree in England; the equivalent L6 NVQ / HNC in Wales, or the Scottish equivalent, can be desirable, particularly in engineering, construction, law or health and safety. Some positions may require chartered status with a relevant body.
However, industry experience is often very important too, so entrants with other qualifications might be considered, for example: IOSH Working Safely, IOSH Managing Safely, or CITB Site Safety Plus training courses.
Often there is a minimum requirement of NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety, or NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety or equivalent.
