In 2012, Caroline took the decision to start up her own business as a Virtual Office Assistant, which was proving very successful and whilst carrying out these duties contracted work from Watson & Watson Health & Safety Consultants Ltd.
The initial success of this contracted work and Caroline's proven track record inspired the Directors of Watson & Watson Health & Safety Consultants Ltd to offer her the role of Office Manager in April 2015.

Health & Safety Co-ordinator
Miss Taylor Watson on leaving school took the initially route of further education and this resulted in her achieving excellent academic qualifications. With this as a robust foundation, Taylor then focussed her sights on a career where she could apply her academic qualifications and be equally challenged and rewarded. She subsequently found Health & Safety with its myriad of challenges ticked all the right boxes.
At this juncture Watson & Watson Health & Safety Consultants Ltd were proud to be able to offer Taylor the role of Health and Safety Coordinator, this role being based on an apprenticeship scheme.
Taylor's performance and commitment to date has been recognised by the Company Directors and as a result of this Taylor is now preparing to take the NEBOSH General Certificate so as to underpin the practical experience gained to date.
