Job Description






Drs.Direct Ltd is a bespoke Occupational Health recruitment consultancy based in the United Kingdom.

Our Client is seeking an Occupational Health Advisor


To assist managers in the planning, and implementing of robust, evidence based Occupational Health (OH) practices e.g. absence management advice, pre-employment assessment and health surveillance. The post holder will be expected to assess performance, review the application of, and advise on, adaptations to Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) practices where necessary.

  •  Although operating as part of a wider OH team the post holder will nevertheless be solely responsible for the advice and direction given to the client organisation and will be solely responsible for the quality of advice given.  At the direction of the Clinical Director the post holder may be expected to be an expert in, and lead on, specific areas of OH practice/legislation within the team. The outputs from these specialist areas will be used to direct other OH practitioners work and may therefore be implemented in other client organisations.
  • The post holder will work in a proactive and independent manner with minimum supervision, prioritising and planning their own workload. In the absence of the Clinical Director, the post holder will be required to exercise their judgement and make decisions on certain circumstances. The post holder must prioritise their own workload, adjust to meet deadlines and respond to changing circumstances; including successfully managing, at times, somewhat conflicting demands. The post holder will have discretion and latitude in determining how and when to perform their duties.
