About us

Our mission is to strive to make safety accessible and easier for all people, no matter their expertise. Yep, we’re those guys, we work hard to ensure mums, dads, brothers, sisters and (big) children arrive home from work daily, so they can live life to the fullest. To support this mission, we started Action OHS Consulting and then realised that we could empower businesses to manage safety independently, if they had technology that was built to suit them. That’s why we built Safety Champion, which today, co-exists side by side with Action OHS Consulting as sister companies. Collectively, both businesses employ 40 employees, with double digit growth year on year.

With our team continuing to grow, we’re looking for a WHS Consultant who is motivated to support us in building our practice in NSW. We are setting our team up for success as we continue to evolve! We want you to work closely with our clients and take pride in supporting them to solve WHS problems in a practical, approachable and efficient way. Whether you’re making a move from another consulting role or a residential safety role, you’ll be supported and encouraged by our amazing national team of SME’s.

There’s no end to the collaboration and knowledge sharing you’ll gain by working with a team of likeminded humans. On a day-to-day basis, you will be involved with the following tasks:

  • Working closely with the General Manager and Senior Consultant to support the development and roll out our growth strategy in NSW;
  • Facilitating health and safety discovery sessions with our clients and implementing recommended improvements;
  • Working in-house at client sites, supporting them in-person to build their WHS Program and strengthen their WHS processes and practices; and
  • Leading health and safety audits/reviews and other safety specific projects.
  • In addition to sharing your WHS insights and solutions with your clients; you will maintain strong relationships with clients of every level, on all projects in which you work, to ensure both successful project delivery and long-lasting business relationships.

Our preference is to have this role based in Sydney. Of course we will consider hybrid working arrangements (as well as part time or full time). This is a great opportunity to return to work after parental leave or a career break/change, or mix things up with a more flexible way of working.



  • Tertiary qualification in workplace safety preferred, however experienced applicants with a vocational experience will also be considered.
  • 3-5 years’ experience in consulting environments.
  • Highly proficient English writing skills, with experience preparing professional, client-ready proposals, audit/review reports, blog articles, and other technical safety communications.
  • A keen interest and willingness in collaborating with consulting professionals to deliver a consistent and high-quality level of services to our clients.
  • An ability to manage both your own time and projects along with your team, balancing client requirements and requests with agreed project scope and budgets.
  • An ability to manage multiple customers and projects at any one given time.
  • A flexible and adaptable approach to changes in the work environment.
  • A full driver’s licence and access to a vehicle, and willingness to travel to client sites as required.
