Health and safety firm’s five recruits

Have your say

Health and safety company HS Direct has taken on five members of staff at its Sheffield headquarters - and plans to take on another five in the New Year.

The company, which started 10 years ago, now has a team of 40 after opening a second office in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, earlier this year, where it will take on 12 more.

The most recent appointments were in sales, marketing and IT.

The company is now looking to recruit a health and safety consultant, an administrator and three salespeople.

HS Direct provides method statements, risk assessments, health and safety policies and tool-box talks, as well as documents, training and consulting services.

As well as the UK it has clients in Europe, the Middle East and South Africa.

Managing director Nick Murphy said: “In the last few months we’ve pretty much doubled our staff numbers and already we know we need to take on more.

“These are not just temporary roles for Christmas but permanent jobs within a fast-growing company.”
