What’s the current job scene for OHS? The news is that at the moment there are more roles on offer than candidates, according to Helen O’Keefe, who runs a leading national health & safety executive search agency. This was the subject of her zoom presentation for Central Safety Group on 12 October.
Helen discussed the reasons for the current shortage of applicants happening across the board in a range of industries, as well as in different levels and roles in the OHS field.
She offered advice to recruiters, current job seekers and people trying to decide whether to move in the current job climate. She spoke about how, when you have a candidate-led market, the traditional recruitment methods may not work. She also outlined aspects that candidates need to consider carefully before accepting a new role.
Helen spoke about how workplace changes during the pandemic have led to some organisations creating different OHS roles or adding new requirements.

The presenter:

Helen O’Keefe is the founder of HOK Talent Solutions, which specialises in national HSE recruitment. Helen has a passion for the health and safety industry, and had been working in recruitment for this sector before founding her own agency in 2015. Prior to this, her background includes working as National Recruitment Manager for the Australian Red Cross, and as an HR consultant with pharmaceutical company GSK.
