NEBOSH’s latest Jobs Barometer research again confirms that when UK employers advertise health and safety positions they expect applicants to have relevant professional qualifications. In fact 90% of the job advertisements for safety, health and environmental (SHE) roles reviewed specified one or more NEBOSH qualifications. That's up from 83% last year.

50% of all advertised positions specified a degree equivalent NEBOSH Diploma, and the average top-end salary advertised for those positions was £49,000. That's over 16% higher than £42,000 - the average top-end salary when no NEBOSH Diploma was specified. This premium was also identified by the 2017 pay survey conducted by Health and Safety at Work Magazine, which found that there's a £7,600 salary boost for having a NEBOSH Diploma. Just one more great reason to sign up for a NEBOSH Course today.
