  • Establish a collaborative SHE network committed to continuous improvement by sharing knowledge and best practices around all things SHE

  • Be the 'go-to' person for managing internal/external reporting and communications on SHE topics, as well as introducing tools, metrics and KPIs to monitor global SHE performance

  • Engage with manufacturing units to understand how the SHE function can better support them to improve performance and productivity

Please apply below if this sounds like an exciting next step in your career and if you:

  • Have a growth mindset and a drive to capitalise on opportunities for SHE improvement

  • Are energised by developing cross-cultural, multi-level stakeholder relationships, be that in person or face-to-face

  • Thrive in roles that require strong project management, presentation and interpersonal skills

  • Understand the complexities of operating across different businesses, geographies and cultures in order to adapt your approach in a way that allows for consistency and local flexibility
