The Health and Safety Executive is recruiting an Enforcement Team Leader to join our Chemicals Regulation Division.
The Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) employs around 300 scientific, policy and support staff in York, Bootle and London. Our primary role is to deliver regulatory schemes intended to protect the health of people and the environment, balancing the economic and social benefits that chemicals offer to society, and helping to ensure the safe and sustainable use of chemicals.
To achieve this and deliver improved regulatory outcomes, we work closely with small and large businesses, and key stakeholders, ranging from industry bodies and multi-national chemical businesses, other government departments (in particular Defra) and other regulators across Europe and internationally.
This is a frontline role managing a team of B4 Pesticide Enforcement Officers who specialise in carrying out a wide range of regulatory interventions in all areas of the chemical supply chain. The role will continue to evolve, and you will need to remain flexible to adapt to new challenges as the Enforcement Team grows, including developing new online investigation tools and techniques; and be involved in the major changes required to implement under the Official Controls Regulation 2017/625, a programme of controls at GB operators.
