Once proud and caring employer, now subject to market forces. Working conditions deteriorating, and moral decreasing largely due to top heavy management structure, leading to lack of professional response to core function.
there is no progression/promotion from one band to the next, to progress one has to apply to any suitable vacancies that are published. Your previous performance is not used as a measure during the recruitment process.... Also there is no incremental pay rises within the various bands... performance us not rewarded.
relaxed no pressure work/life balance
poor pay, no promotion options
There is no typical day at work in my role as a Specialist Occupational Health Inspector. It is both varied and diverse and includes attending Court to provide Expert Opinion on criminal cases involving occupational ill health. I am often called on to provide specialist support to my general Inspector colleagues on occupational ill-health issues across a wide range of industries. There is a culture of mutual support between colleagues and a willingness to share information when called upon to do so. My role is very rewarding and diverse, with no two days the same. For instance, I am also responsible for my own investigations, one of which led to a successful prosecution against a company that failed to control exposure to vibrating equipment, thereby exposing its employees to ill health. This has been the most challenging part of my role to date. As a nurse, it is also very rewarding to work with employers and their employees in order to mitigate the risk of developing an occupational related disease by ensuring that the right control measures are in place. The nature of my role also requires me to complete the Regulatory Training Programme. This programme is underwritten by NEBOSH and required me to successfully complete the course. It included a year long theory and practical training and I am very proud of the fact that I achieved an excellent grade in the Legal Examination component of the course.
Lovely place to work, nice colleagues, flexible hours, relaxed atmosphere, pension and sick pay. Interesting work.. They really do look after you and have your best interests at heart. Lots of in house training courses. I worked there as an Administrator for fifteen years. I left 2015. Regret it to this day.
Incredibly supportive managers with a real focus on staff development Performance related awards 25 days annual leave, increasing to 30 days after 5 years of service; plus 8 bank holidays and a privilege day. Flexible working – great work/life balance Highly competitive pension (21% employer contribution) Cycle to work scheme Childcare vouchers And a range of other employee benefits The opportunity to meet and work with professionals from a wide range of professions including, engineers, doctors, nurses, microbiologists, economists and lawyers, to name but a few
