We have an exciting opportunity for a Regulatory Compliance Officer (RCO) to join our Chemicals, Explosives and Microbiological Hazards Divisions.

The RCO role is a front facing role which forms a key part of the operational team. RCOs are required to work alone and alongside inspectors and specialists supporting their work. The work of the RCO is fundamental to informing decisions around targeting resources and prioritisation.

As an RCO you will work as part of a regulatory team. Your role, once fully operational, will include the following activities:

  • Gathering intelligence about workplaces which fall within the remit of CEMHD to regulate in order to help inform regulatory decisions;
  • Liaison with SEPA and local authorities;
  • Making enquiries into reported incidents or concerns to inform the operational team leader’s investigation decision;
  • Taking voluntary witness statements;
  • Securing and processing evidence and contributing to its proper management;
  • Visiting workplaces to provide advice and identify matters of concern where an inspection intervention may be justified;
  • Attending court hearings to take notes and provide feedback or to give evidence on matters relating to RCO involvement in the case;
  • Interacting with a wide group of duty holders, employees, trade union representatives, Local Authority officers, members of the public and other interested parties including the Police and solicitors in the course of reactive support work.
