About us

We established Irwin & Colton with one idea in mind; to make health, safety and environment recruitment better. For both clients and candidates. We were determined to enable a happier, safer, more productive workforce that adds tangible value and drives business objectives.

We achieve this by working hard to find candidates who are far more than just technically qualified and experienced. Our team is committed to finding and placing people who also bring innovative new ideas to the role, and who are effective communicators that engage and inspire those around them. These are the rare individuals that our clients trust us to find; exceptional people will move the organisation beyond compliance and deliver tangible positive change.

Just like you, we know that this blend of technical and non-technical skills is key to an organisation’s success. It is our determination and ability to find and place these candidates that makes Irwin & Colton the recruitment partner of choice for so many brands.

We have over a decade’s experience across health, safety and environment market. Our in-depth knowledge and hard work have benefited blue chip, FTSE 100 companies and leading consultancies to recruit their health, safety and environment teams.

We place a wide range of roles, from Directors through to Managers and Advisors, in  both permanent and contract positions. So, whether you’re looking for a unique health, safety and environment candidate or a role that’s going to change your life, you can trust us to make it happen.
