Health and Safety Support Officer (Customer Service)

Cardiff, UK

Creating Safer Workplaces for Everyone.

We want to create a better working world by building a global network of responsible buyers and suppliers. Alcumus SafeContractor takes the pain out of compliance for over 50,000 organisations globally, helping them protect their people, their operations, and the planet. We support our network of hiring clients, suppliers, and contractors by keeping them compliant with the standards that matter most, from health and safety and sustainability to ethical behaviour.

As a Health and Safety Support Officer at Alcumus (known internally as a Technical Support Officer), you'll support the Audit Services team in the completion of desktop assessments of registered customer's accreditation documentation, and will provide technical support via phone and email to customers ensuring a first-class customer experience!

You will work across our SafeContractor product which provides UKAS accredited, contractor accreditation services to the contractor market. The SafeContractor product ensures that contractors meet the necessary requirements around health and safety, equal opportunities, diversity and environmental management practices - all in one plan!

You'll receive full onboarding and training as well as support to gain health and safety specific qualifications that are required for this role.

What that means day to day

What you’ll need to be successful

  • Complete pre-audit checks on customer information to ensure a minimum standard has been demonstrated before it progresses to the full audit.
  • Working through a number of pre-audit checks of customer's information to ensure everything required is collated.
  • Providing feedback to customers and collating any missing required information for the pre-audit checks.
  • Support customers with areas of improvement where more information is needed in order to pass the audit and become accredited.
  • Provide health and safety advice and guidance to customers (full training provided).

Customer service, administrative experience and attention to detail are the most important skills for this role; you will spend a lot of time liaising with customers and verifying documentation ahead of the full audit cycle. The ability to demonstrate consistency in applying quality processes and standards and the ability to identify discrepancies will also be required.

You will need to be confident in handling customer enquiries via telephone and email and will need to demonstrate a good standard of written English also.

Our Health and Safety Support Officers work as part of a close-knit team so it is important for you to be a team player, working well within a team setting and able to work towards a common objective with your peers.

You may have some experience, or even an interest in health and safety or compliance, although this is not essential.
