HSE Recruitment are working with a growing manufacturing company in Abingdon, Oxfordshire who are looking for an autonomous and confident HSE Advisor to join them in a newly created role. If you want to join a company who are going through rapid growth, have a role in which you make the decisions, all whilst being developed yourself, then this could be the role for you.
This is a standalone role, responsible for one site but you will have the support of the senior leadership function. You are responsible for assisting in the development, implementation and maintenance of the company’s safety infrastructure, documentation and procedures. You will be pivotal in providing a robust and comprehensive in-house Environment Health and Safety service.
There are some things in place from a H&S point of view but there are gaps and its important a full gap analysis and plan is pulled together and actioned. There is a willingness to change, and people are open to it but experience driving behavioural change could be beneficial. There are risk assessments, and some staff know how to do them, but a refresher is needed as well as a review of the risk assessments themselves. You will have responsibility for all aspects of H&S including training, inductions, audits, accident investigations etc.
• An experienced Health and Safety advisor who has had the right level of exposure to be in an autonomous role, who can hold their own and stand their ground, who will be resilient and persistent in driving change.
• Minimum qualification of NEBOSH Cert but ideally working towards a Diploma in H&S. An environmental qualification would also be beneficial however a training plan could be offered to the right person.
• Someone who is confident, engaging and can communicate at all levels.
• Having experience in a similar environment (manufacturing/engineering) and risk profile would be beneficial but not essential.
The salary on offer is £35-40,000 and this will be a one stage interview process taking place on site.
