Get to Know Our E&M Quality, Health, Safety & Environmental Division

Did you know we have a division within our Engineering and Manufacturing brand that specialise in the recruitment of Quality, Health and Safety and Environmental (QHSE) professionals?

Our QHSE specialists are the only ones of their kind in the region. They are dedicated to identifying and placing candidates responsible for keeping our clients’ people safe, ensuring exceptional levels of customer satisfaction and reducing the threat to our environment.

Our specialist practice

At Elevation, we don’t generalise, and we don’t stereotype. We understand every role and candidate are different. At the same time, the wide variety of positions in this diverse market do share one common characteristic, QHSE roles are no longer seen as secondary “nice to haves”, but are now a number one priority, essential to the critical functioning, core values and commercial well-being of our clients. As a result, there continues to be high demand for individuals with the right experience, knowledge and professional qualifications, prompting Elevation Recruitment Group to develop this dedicated practice.

Our specialist team recruit for a full scope of Quality, Health and Safety and Environmental roles between £25K - £80K across the Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire regions.

We work with a wide variety of Engineering & Manufacturing businesses, ranging from SMEs with 50 employees and a £10M turnover, to large corporate PLCs with over 1000 employees and an £1Bn+ turnover.

As a recruitment partner, we support sectors including but not limited to:

  • Medical Devices
  • Aerospace
  • Construction
  • Automotive
  • Renewable & Sustainable Energy
  • Oil & Gas
  • Marine
  • Nuclear
  • Defence
  • Food & FMCG
  • Cosmetic

Our specialist technical knowledge and combined 30 years of experience, allows us to gain a detailed understanding of each role and the critical part they play within an organisation. This insight enables us to reach out to our vast network of QHSE experts to identify and attract the best talent in the market.

The growing demand

As we are experiencing one of the biggest manufacturing booms of the last 20 years, the candidates we place in Quality roles are pivotal to both the output of products and business reputation. These people guarantee that customers receive quality goods/products that meet their expected requirements, and as a result, our clients enjoy repeat business, in a competitive marketplace.

With a global emphasis on climate change, the Environmental professionals we partner with are directly responsible for the carbon footprint of our clients. These candidates ensure the preservation of our society for years to come, whilst championing modern and British manufacturing.

If COVID-19 has highlighted anything positive, it is the need for effective safety, and a dedicated approach to the wellbeing of staff within every business, particular for those in the Engineering and Manufacturing sector. People are the backbone of any organisation, and the candidates we hire help to provide a safe working environment for employees to operate in.

Our candidates

Our candidates have a diverse range of specialist skills and qualifications at varying levels of seniority. We work with candidates that are heavily invested in expert institutions such as the Chartered Quality Institute and IOSH.

Our HSE candidates have completed hours of practical and exam-based courses, equivalent to Degree level, to pass their NEBOSH Diploma or NCRQ Diploma, whilst others are studying towards the NEBOSH General Certificate.

The modern QHSE candidates aren’t only an encyclopaedia of knowledge for all UK Law & Legislation relevant to their specialism, but they are also expert influencers, relationship builders and problem solvers, with strong interpersonal skills.

We continue to grow our candidate network, using a combination of online job boards, social platforms and as importantly, referrals. Over the years, we have established relationships with the most reputable professionals in the industry.
