Are you looking to join a business where sustainability underpins everything they do?

This organisation, an integrated energy, mining and infrastructure group operating in sub-Saharan Africa, are committed to making a positive environmental and social impact on the communities in which they operate. Their mission is to develop, own and operate high-quality long-term assets that will be critical to achieving a sustainable future.

The corporate team, based in the UK, is currently undergoing a period of growth prior to an initial public offering (IPO) and the Board are looking for someone like you to create a corporate strategy to drive long-term, sustainable improvement. Day to day, you'll be providing strategic and practical health & safety leadership across the Group and its assets. You will support the VP of Sustainability & Stakeholder Engagement, as well as project teams in sub-Saharan Africa, to ensure the business achieves one of its highest priorities - a safe and healthy workforce.

You'll be:

  • A confident and experienced leader - you'll be responsible for creating processes, mechanisms and tools which will enable a long-term, positive and sustainable health & safety culture across a variety of major projects and assets.

  • Happy to roll your sleeves up - the corporate leadership team is a lean one, so this will mean getting stuck into all sorts of projects if and when required!

  • Organised and able to prioritise - you'll be the corporate face of H&S for the organisation, so your skills will be in high demand! It's important that you have held a similar post before and are confident in choosing what projects to prioritise at a given time.

In terms of experience:

  • It's important that you have previous health & safety leadership experience within a global business.

  • It's vital that you have experience working across different geographies, cultures and languages. Experience working in Africa will be viewed favourably.

  • You will have previously worked in a high-hazard industry, such as mining, energy, oil & gas, power generation, construction, transportation or petrochemicals.

  • It's important that you're technically proficient - you will possess a professional qualification in occupational health & safety.

  • If you can demonstrate that you can build meaningful relationships whilst working remotely, that will go a long way.

You will be based in either the South East or South West of England, ideally in a commutable distance of either London or Bristol.

In return for your skills and expertise you'll be met with a salary of up to £120,000 dependent on your experience, a bonus of up to 30% and an outstanding wider benefits package. You'll also have some peace of mind - this organisation hasn't been affected by recent events and is pushing ahead with its growth and hiring plans.
