Health & Safety Officer, Science Museum


Do you have experience of working within Health & Safety in a busy and varied environment? Can you help to promote a positive H&S culture?

At the Science Museum Group, we make it our mission to inspire futures. In order for us to keep our Museums accessible and open for all, we are continually committed to the wellbeing and protection of our buildings, collections, employees and visitors through the production and delivery of policies and procedures group wide. One of the key functions who will deliver on this is Health and Safety, and we are now looking for a permanent H&S Officer to help the team promote a positive H&S culture, ensuring compliance with regulations and associated guidance. This role will provide H&S advice across SMG’s Southern sites and some national functions, including completion of audits, review of incidents and H&S communications across the Group.

Joining us, you’ll have experience of working in a similar role in a busy and varied environment. You will ideally hold a Level 3 H&S qualification, or will be studying towards a Level 5 H&S qualification. You’ll have a strong working knowledge of Microsoft office applications (specifically Excel), with the ability to work with other relevant systems/software, and will have a pragmatic, supportive and collaborative approach to H&S. This is a busy role in a busy and complex environment, so the ability to manage multiple and conflicting tasks, diaries and deadlines will be helpful.
