Hi there I've just started the process of switching careers after a lot of consideration, I'm currently working in construction as a trainee manager after completing a degree in construction project management. Thanks for all the useful advice. The company I work for is quite small so not much opportunity to progress in health and safety.
I would need to move companies.. Looking at jobs I see environment is mentioned alot in the job descriptions.
