Key responsibilities of this varying role include:

  • Improving the health and safety culture to help reach standards of excellence throughout the company
  • Managing any changes necessary through business needs in terms of health and safety
  • Working with the senior management team to encourage and influence pro-active behaviours on site
  • Looking at the whole portfolio of sites and assessing where improvements could be made
  • Reviewing risk assessments and method statements
  • Aiding with the setting of strategy for each site

The successful Health and Safety Manager will hold:

  • Experience within the Logistics/Distribution industry or similar sector such as manufacturing
  • NEBOSH General in Occupational Health and Safety
  • Demonstrable experience in formulating, improving and implementing Health and Safety policies and procedures
  • The ability to influence and encourage pro-active behaviours to improve the overall health and safety culture.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

With excellent senior management interaction this is a truly rare opportunity and an incredible career opportunity to influence and make a difference. The successful applicant will receive a salary between £40,000 - £45,000 depending on experience and benefits which include; pension, 25 days holiday pa and company car.
