I guess it all depends on the role you want.

When i left my last job i had different options.
So i was searching for Quality Manager, Health and Safety Manager, or a combination of the both.

Mostly when i searched i dropped the Manager part and just searched Quality or Health and Safety, but i modified the industries to be relevant to my experience of field i did/did not want to work in.
I also selected the location i wanted to work in.

That then gave me everything from inspector, manager, director, consultant, advisor roles and more to view.
As a result, i ened up applying for various types of roles to keep my options as open as possible.

Hope that helps.

I think Glean has summed it up nicely for you Stretch.

If I am searching, I also use same as Glen and the words "health and safety jobs" adding the following - nebosh, IOSH, qualified, recent, trainee, entry level, local, UK, consultant etc.

Are you not getting any replies to your CV Stretch? If so, give me a wee PM.
