Technical Safety Specialist (Specifications & Standards)

£38,800 - £52,600 + benefits

Kensal Road, Kensington, W10 5BE


The wellbeing of our residents, staff and contractors is a priority for Kensington and Chelsea. With that in mind, we’ve created a brand new team to focus on Health, Safety and Resilience (HSR) within the Housing Management Department. As Technical Safety Specialist for Specifications & Standards, you’ll take Health & Safety Management to a whole new level.


This is a chance to use your expertise to achieve solid results and improvements. Reporting to the Head of Head of Health, Safety and Resilience, you will help to introduce and manage a health and safety management system across our Housing Management Service. It’s a varied challenge where you’ll be supporting the delivery of Health & Safety programmes, introducing new H&S practice and implementing assurance activities. You’ll also help to organise our response in the event of an emergency. By drawing on your credibility in HSR, you’ll help to embed a proactive health and safety culture while supporting training Council-wide.

NEBOSH-qualified in Occupational Health & Safety (or with an equivalent IOSH certificate), you’ll bring strong technical knowledge of Housing Management and Construction related Health and Safety. You’ll also be used to auditing and inspecting, and managing the health, safety and welfare of staff and contractors. And thanks to excellent communication skills, you can negotiate effectively, work with a range of contacts and give expert advice on Health & Safety compliance, supporting Procurement.


Join us and make a positive, lasting difference.
