What can we expect from OSH jobs market in 2023?

Whether you’re looking to recruit new OSH professionals or searching for a new role yourself, you may be wondering what the OSH jobs market is set to look like in 2023. We asked experts at global careers consultancy for their thoughts

The demand for OSH skills continues to be strong and there are good opportunities in most sectors. However, the economic situation has meant many professionals are choosing to stay put for now, and only those unhappy or specifically in need of a job are applying at the present time. Those passively searching are less likely to put themselves forward for new opportunities.

Within manufacturing, candidates are becoming more selective – looking for significant pay rises, clear progression and opportunities for hybrid working.

Ryan Binnee, Managing Consultant

In 2023 there will be an increased focus on getting the right fit both when recruiting for OSH jobs and when developing current teams. Aspirational alignment will become even more important as people expect their organisations to support them in achieving their career goals. Our inaugural Beyond HSEQ event in London last month highlighted the importance of ED&I to the future of our profession and the aspiration to create cognitively diverse teams.
