How to become an environmental health professional

Want a career that helps makes the world a better place?

From the air we breathe to the food we eat, environmental health professionals help everyone stay healthy, happy and safe. They’re here to protect us and our environment, today and tomorrow.

No job is ever the same. You could work for a private company, for government or a charity. And you can specialise in lots of interesting areas: from food safety to pollution, housing to public health, and much more.

Wherever you end up as an environmental health professional, you’ll be out and about, meeting new people and making a real difference. That’s what makes it so rewarding.

“If you speak to any EHO, you’ll find the diversity of the role is what’s appealing”
Chris Williams, HSE Director, Compass Group
