Current Opportunities | Appointment Process

This web page has been created to advertise work available with Chichester Harbour Conservancy and its partners suitable for consultants and contractors. Consultants support the Conservancy by providing advice and guidance, or desk-based skills, like graphic design. Contractors also support the Conservancy with capital projects, like access improvements.

To comply with The Health and Safety at work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work regulations 1999, the Conservancy need to do the necessary checks on contractors to ensure they are taking reasonable care for their own safety, and for that of all other persons who may be affected by their acts or omissions.

For a contractor to be considered for work, they must provide:

  • Evidence of Public Liability Insurance
  • A Health & Safety Policy
  • A Risk Assessment for the work they are bidding for
  • A Method Statement for the work they are bidding for

In addition, the Conservancy may also ask for:

  • An Environmental and Sustainability Policy
  • An Accident History List
  • References

The Conservancy may also check for any prohibition notices with the HSE.

There is lots of advice on the HSE website for Control of Contractors. Visit for further details.

If, for instance, your company does not yet have a Health & Safety Policy, we would encourage to use this as a prompt to prepare one since it is best practice.
