Job Advert Location Description

We have an exciting opportunity for a Health and Safety Manager to join the team and support our growing business. Reporting to the General Counsel/Company Secretary, the Health and Safety Manager will be responsible for:

  • Management of a small team of Regional Health & Safety Advisors
  • Oversee H&S communication across the company and ensure policies and procedures are updated and in line with H&S legislation and guidance
  • Lead on the management of any interactions by external regulators including Fire Authority, Environmental Health and Health and Safety Executive
  • Oversee and maintain a database of all RIDDOR reportable incidents, completing investigations when requested
  • Work proactively with company functions including Estates and Quality Teams
  • Manage a programme of Fire Risk Assessment across the company including engagement with external providers

What we would like from the role holder:

The role is remote, with national coverage. Travel is likely to be required nationally to sites and regional offices with prior notice and with regular overnight stays.  The complexity and nature of the situations faced within the business may, at times, be outside the ‘norms’ of some health and safety roles and some individuals may find them emotionally challenging.  It is therefore important that the postholder continually develop their knowledge of the operating environment to help them understand the wider context.
