Who we are

At Irwin & Colton we specialise in health, safety and environment recruitment. With over a decade’s experience, we know that the health, safety and environment sector is about much more than doing the right thing; it’s also about organisational risks and opportunities. And just like our clients and candidates, at the core of what we do is hard work and expertise.

For clients

We are committed to finding our clients the perfect candidate. But we’re dedicated to sourcing people who are far more than well qualified and technically proficient. Our candidates add true value, creating inspiring ideas, influencing, engaging and communicating, to go beyond compliance and bring real, positive change. It is this blend of hard and soft skills that makes our candidates unique, and makes Irwin & Colton the partner of choice for health, safety and environment recruitment. Using our wealth of experience and deep market knowledge, we recruit both contract and permanent positions, from Health, Safety and Environment Director to Manager and Advisor level, so you always find the perfect candidate

For candidates

When you are looking for your next role, working with the expert in your sector gives you significant advantage. But beyond that, it’s crucial to have the right support. That’s why, at Irwin & Colton, we work with all our candidates personally. So, you get all the help and preparation you need, to successfully take the next step on the career ladder.
