We are Citation Group. We offer colleagues and clients an opportunity they will not gain at many other businesses. We are interested in growth, investment and service excellence, we have never and will never grow our business by cost cutting or tying people up in bureaucracy. We don’t do politics – we want people focused upon actions and delivery. We don’t do micro-management – we empower, support and innovate. We are leaders, not empire builders and we love our business.
This is a really exciting to join us on our infamous development schemes. Across our group companies we have over 45,000 clients who love us, need us and want to buy more from us. Having acquired 10 businesses over the last 3 years which offer products and services that our clients need and want; we’re only interested in future growth; we’re not finished yet.
Moving is a risk – is that what you’re thinking? We’ve just entered our 3rd wave of private equity ownership alongside KKR and Hg Capital and don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon. This also means as the company grows over the next 3 to 5 years, you’ve got the opportunity to do so too! If the prospect of this excites you… good, you’re the right type of person for us.
In this role, you will work with key stakeholders and teams right across the business. It is a wide and varied role with bags of opportunity and support. With continual double-digit growth year on year, our business thrives on people with vision, determination, agility, focus and brilliant people skills.
Citation have decided that in addition to bringing on board highly experienced consultants, we also want to assist people out there who are screaming for a chance in health and safety. This scheme will take onboard TechIOSH level candidates and over a set period develop you, via the NCRQ Diploma in Applied Health and Safety, to reach GradIOSH status. But it no longer has to stop there anymore.
During this programme you will spend time at our fabulous head office in Wilmslow, learning from our technical content and helpline teams. Alongside this you will have the exposure to field consultancy working alongside several of our competent and brilliant H&S Consultant’s.
Once out of the programme, the support doesn’t stop there! At GradIOSH status, we will place you into our IPD/CPD programme and support you to achieve CMIOSH status whist working as a H&S Field Consultant.
What we want from you is your desire to progress in health and safety in a role where your technical skills are important but so is your personality. We ask that you work hard alongside our teams who are itching to see you progress to achieve the Diploma as efficiently as possible. You will have a dedicated Training and Development Manager who will be responsible for your welfare and that you have everything you need to progress.
Is this too good to be true?
This scheme isn’t a flash in the pan for us, 2021 will be the 5th consecutive year we have recruited for our advisors – so we know exactly what we are doing and how to support you through your H&S journey. As soon as you get GradIOSH, it doesn’t mean it’s all over – you will still have a role, you will have just graduated into a full-time, field-based consultant.
If you’re thinking, I’ve got the necessary qualifications and knowledge – but they’ll never look at me because of my current role as it’s not H&S related, apply anyway, what have you got to lose?
What if your long-term goal isn’t just H&S?
Perfect, we want aspiring future Fire Risk assessors or Electrical Safety professionals to apply. There aren’t many other companies who could offer you the continuous development like we can. We would love you to progress through the business and be able to look after our clients regarding several compliance services they receive from us.
We’re still in lockdown – should I apply?
Absolutely, we are in full growth mode and thanks to COVID some of our services couldn’t be more relevant. If you’ve spent lockdown trapped at home thinking “I wish I could develop more…” or “this business doesn’t appreciate me anymore…” – it’s time to do something for you and move.
Our offices are all COVID secure and we have the facilities to do everything virtually whilst we navigate the upcoming roadmap milestones. Just be reassured, your safety is paramount to us – and you will have value to add to our clients from day 1.
All we need from you is:
Don’t delay in applying!
