Our dedication to both relationship-building and constant innovation allows us to develop the products and services you need to thrive in a constantly evolving market place.

Main Purpose of the Role

Using the academic underpinning of health and safety technical expertise, the role of the Compliance assistant is one of designing safety and environmental controls into the manufacturing process, whilst striving for continuous improvement. Your ultimate responsibility is to ensure Apollo Chemicals Ltd are, and remain, compliant.

This is very much a 'hands on’ role where you will be required to collect appropriate data, make suitable analysis and communicate findings and conclusions to the wider company. Additionally you will play a key role in the implementation of improvements that will make the business more safe and effective to, ultimately, increase profits.

As a Graduate Compliance Assistant your main responsibilities will include (but are not limited to):

  • Carrying out site safety audits with written reports including any identified actions
  • Promote a positive safety culture to the whole of the business through team talks
  • Respond to accidents and incidents and ensure accident prevention plans are put in place
  • Assist the Compliance Team within an operational role

With 6-12 months’ work experience (ideally in an industrial placement), you should have either academic or practical experience in the following:

  • Health & Safety process guidelines for businesses
  • Risk assessments for manufacturing processes
  • Procedures for the company integrated management system (9001, 14001)
  • CLP and REACH implementation, including MSDS creation
  • Creating / Writing documentation and guidelines
  • Risk Assessments
  • Safety Briefings
  • Product label development
  • Process Aspect and Impact audits
  • Emergency response and preparedness reviews
  • Customer support in health and safety matters

Experience in the working environment is critical for this role. This experience can come through a placement year (as part of your university course), or through full time employment.
