We are seeking an enthusiastic Health and Safety Officer with recognised health and safety qualifications and full UK driving licence to join the Housing Service based in Lowestoft.

You must be a good team player as you will be an integral part of the council’s Corporate Health and Safety Team whilst working on a day-to-day basis in the Tenancy Services Team.

Working closely with managers, supervisors and operatives, you will promote a safe working environment, educate via “toolbox talks” and advise the organisation on changes to legislation and areas of best practice.

You will be expected to undertake risk assessments, draft method statements, monitor compliance on site for all our building maintenance activities and be responsible for investigating and reporting work related incidents.

In return, we can offer good opportunities for development. There is also a superb benefits package, including flexible working options, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.

Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils are committed to improving the quality of life for everyone living in, working in and visiting east Suffolk. Already a progressive, successful partnership, we are in the process of combining our two authorities to create the largest district council in the country, delivering vital services to those who need them most. It is a truly exciting time to join us.
