CSW Group are transition management specialists. We offer information, guidance and support to people and organisations as they move through different stages of their lives. We are a not-for-profit social enterprise; we reinvest any operating surpluses into new products and services, organisational development, and community based projects.

We are recruiting for NEBOSH Qualified Workplace Experience Liaison Officers (WELOs) across all areas in the wider South West of England and would welcome expressions of interest from candidates.

CSW Group works in partnership with schools, colleges and businesses to support young people to access opportunities to create the workforce of tomorrow. An important part of this work is facilitating successful experiences of the workplace for school and college students on placements at employers across the South West.

The role of a WELO is to carry out health and safety checks with employers and to help them provide a workplace experience that is appropriate, safe and productive for the young person concerned. WELOs discuss and assess the employer’s working environment and attitudes to health and safety to ensure a successful placement.

WELOs also act as ambassadors of our business and identify opportunities for employers to engage with our range or programmes and services.

The WELO role is seasonal and hours will fluctuate according to demand and would therefore benefit someone looking to supplement their income doing something that benefits young people. The busiest period is generally February to July.

Applicants must hold a NEBOSH qualification.

Candidates should be customer focused, have excellent ICT and communication skills and the ability to manage their own workload and deadlines. Access to a car is essential to carry out this role. An understanding of workplace experience programmes would be desirable but not essential as full training is given.

£9.22 per hour, plus a payment for annual leave accrued. Reasonable travel and subsistence expenses are reimbursed.
