Job Description


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Group Health and Safety Advisor to join a leading provider of Exhibition and Events Services operating across EMEA. You will be based from their office in Coventry with your time equally split between the office and travel across the UK, with occasional International travel.

As Group Health and Safety Advisor you will be responsible for ensuring health and safety is an integrated consideration during projects which can range from full venue to single stand installations. The company provides a variety of services to over 400 events per year, predominantly working with B2B exhibition organisers. You will be expected to conduct ad-hoc site visits to audit the build or breakdown of exhibitions at various venues.

Due to tight timescales and a heavy usage of sub contractors, it is essential health and safety is a key part of their operations throughout the entire process. Client facing experience and competence is essential with the ability to interact with individuals at all levels. You will be aware of CDM regulations as these will impact on the construction elements of staging and exhibitions.
