Job Description

Your expertise in toxicology will drive regulation and risk assessment forward

The challenge
Regulation is a powerful Government tool to address market failures, influence behaviour and promote positive action. Crafted and delivered well, regulation can be an enabler of growth, innovation and efficiency. Here at the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS), part of the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), our goal is to be a trusted product regulator for the UK.

The OPSS Science Team provides robust and relevant scientific advice and novel research for the development of policy, and the delivery and enforcement of product safety regulations. Our remit includes toys and cosmetics, as well as construction products. We span many specialisms including analytical chemistry, materials science and toxicology, and work closely with other evidence teams in engineering, research, analysis and testing.

About the role
As a toxicologist in our multidisciplinary Chemical Risk Assessment Team, you will work as part of the secretariat for our Scientific Advisory Group, researching and preparing papers relating to the risks of chemicals in consumer products. You will also assess and interpret toxicological data to undertake chemical risk assessment and communicate outputs to non-specialists. Expect to work closely with colleagues across OPSS and other government departments, as well as external experts and contractors. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to other activities and projects across the Science Team, including our strategic research programme.

About you
You’re likely to have a post-graduate qualification in toxicology or industry experience in the area of chemical risk. An excellent communicator, you’ll have a good record of building and maintaining strong working relationships, and experience of working with a wide range of people, including non-science specialists, to deliver on joint goals. The ability to multi-task and prioritise your workload is essential, as are critical thinking skills and attention to detail.  You’ll demonstrate technical and commercial leadership potential and will be ready to deliver at pace. Prior experience within a scientific secretariat and an appreciation of the legislative framework would be valuable; however, training can be provided.

We offer a range of benefits including a generous leave allowance, flexible working options, learning and development tailored to your role, and a Civil Service pension.
