The UK diving industry comprises many diverse and challenging sectors including offshore oil & gas, inland/inshore commercial diving, offshore renewables, recreational, media, Police, military, scientific, archaeological and shellfish diving activities.

Diving has long been recognised as a major accident hazard offshore with diving operations presenting and being exposed to very real risks whilst working from an installation, alongside from a DSV or daughter craft or as a connected activity. Robust regulation of these diving operations is critical to ensure that all offshore personnel, divers and non-divers, return home healthy and safe from work.

Your primary focus will be to apply your knowledge and experience of the UK oil & gas sector to ensure robust, proportionate and effective regulation of diving operations within that sector. You will be responsible for influencing duty holders and stakeholders, applying your professional judgement based on extensive time served working in the UK oil & gas sector, to assess regulatory compliance against current legislative requirements and industry standards. You will be supported by an exceptional team of colleagues and developed to the highest standard to confidently regulate the industry, influencing duty holders and taking targeted and proportionate enforcement action when necessary.

In addition to your work with the offshore oil & gas sector you will be responsible for ensuring regulatory compliance across all areas of professional diving within England and Wales. You will conduct regulatory inspections, investigate serious incidents and concerns and influence stakeholders at all levels of the UK diving industry. The successful regulation of such a broad portfolio of sectors creates a unique set of challenges and rewards for a Specialist Diving Inspector.

This is an exciting and challenging career which will take you to varied locations, dealing with a wide range of duty holders from individual sole traders to large multi-national corporations, adapting your approach as appropriate. You will be working collaboratively as part of a geographically dispersed, but supportive team of diverse specialists.
