What we do.

About Us.

Who we are.

Established in 1978 as one of the first commercial asbestos consultancies in the UK, ACS was also amongst the first UK organisations to achieve UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accreditation for asbestos testing and surveying and is firmly placed as one of the UK’s leading consultancies in asbestos related research, management, remediation project management, testing, training and expert witness services. 

In 1998, the Company extended its services to include Health & Safety, Environmental and Waste Risk Management and is now regarded as a leader in professional, technical and training services in the area of ‘Physical Risk Management’. In 2006 ACS Marine Risk Control was also established and subsequent additions to the Group include SafetyYouTrustTM and ACS Learning Academy.

For almost 4 decades, the Company has operated throughout the UK, Canada, USA, Europe, Middle East, Africa, India, Japan, Australia, the Falkland Islands and Turkey. In 2016 ACS established a presence in Istanbul to assist in the development of the emerging physical risk management sector.

ACS is relatively unique in being well positioned to offer the full range of professional, technical and training services required to provide total risk management support in the areas of Asbestos, Health & Safety, Environmental and Waste Management.

Marketing Assistant Job Vacancy

ACS currently has a vacancy for a part-time Marketing Assistant, 16-20 hours per week, 20-25k pro rata. The successful candidate will be an experienced, highly driven and self motivated assistant, able to draft articles and draft campaigns on their own but also report directly to and work with the Directors of the Company. Although part-time, this can be a high pressure, fast paced job and so dealing with deadlines, prioritising tasks and liaising with Directors is essential. Due to the high end consultancy that ACS provides, we must have assistants with a very good grasp of grammar - both written and spoken. We need enthusiasm, drive, sense of humour but also the structure required for lone working. Whilst this role is NOT suitable for home working, we are open to flexible working to accommodate school hours. In particular we are looking for candidates with prior marketing experience, sound use of Twitter and LinkedIn, sound grammar (yes, it's so important that we've mentioned it twice). If you are interested in this post, please send your CV to . Closing date for CV's is Friday 10th March 2017.
