Talent Nation’s services within the Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) sectors complement our existing expertise in environment and sustainability through a continual focus on purpose-driven roles in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Australia-wide. As an organisation with a specialised health & safety focus, we understand that employee safety and well-being means more than simply having the ability to manage the operational aspects of employee health- it is also important they have strategic skills to enable them to tap into current employee and workplace trends, adopt and embed new technologies and put in place preventative measures to ensure staff are kept safe but just as important, well, during their employment.
The health and safety segment stretches well beyond managing site safety and preventing workplace accidents, there is a whole raft of emerging health & wellbeing issues employees are identifying as important to them. With the digital age comes an ‘always on’ approach when it comes to work, which means that physically leaving the office no longer means you have finished work for the day- smart devices allow emails to be received at all hours, making it hard for people to truly switch off from the work environment. With this constant connectedness comes, paradoxically, a sense of isolation as ‘real world’ interactions wane in favour of digital ones. It’s increasingly important for the mental health and well-being of employees to be considered as part of an overall organisational WHS strategy, with support services in place to ensure this is on the radar.
Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) candidates need to have specialist experience to be suitable for roles, and not only understand the applicable laws and regulations governing this space, but be able to manage staff to ensure that WHS plans and strategies are truly embedded into the business. They need to be able to report to senior management/executives and work closely with human resources to ensure initiatives are agreed upon, accepted and carried forward.
We are proud to be able to deliver the highest quality EHS candidates in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Australia-wide. Our health & wellbeing subject matter expertise hails from over 20 years industry experience. We not only offer robust sourcing methodologies, but we are not a ‘set and forget’ recruitment agency- we ensure our candidates are the right fit through our rigorous after-placement support and services. We are all about working to build long-term relationships, not quick transactions, and as such we continue to offer support to both candidates and clients well after the initial placement. We have no interest in placing a high number of candidates in a given period to meet a KPI, rather we are focused on finding talent others can’t, to unearth a true fit for our clients- because if they don’t work out in the short term then we haven’t done our jobs properly.
We recruit permanent, full/part-time, temporary and contract roles across Australia. We use a combination of advertising and search techniques, utilising our vast bespoke network. Every recruitment scenario is different, so the approach we take will depend on what our clients need. Often the ideal candidate is not someone who will apply for a role they see advertised, at times they do not even know they are open to a new role until someone they trust raises a new opportunity with them. This is where our strong community of talent comes into play, which we focus on building and maintaining with every job we take on.
We have successfully filled health & safety positions for our clients across core elements of the sector including:
- General Managers
