You're working in health & safety as you want to make a difference. You have a desire to create meaningful change - but are your business supporting you to accomplish that?

This business, a national residential developer, knows that its future must be a safe and sustainable one. The leadership team are ready for innovation to take place and is looking for someone like you to be their pioneer.

Day to day, you'll be putting your experience and expertise in setting realistic and meaningful health & safety objectives into practice. You'll work closely with regional leadership teams to ensure a collective vision that extends beyond systems and compliance to focus on people and behaviour, helping to create a positively reinforced learning culture.

You'll be;

  • A confident and experienced influencer - You'll be the functional H&S lead on all developments in your region, responsible for embedding continuous improvement into the company strategy and engaging with the senior leadership team.

  • Organised and happy to be hands-on with the day-to-day requirements of the role - You'll be working closely with the regional leadership teams to ensure H&S is a key factor in the lifecycle of development, from design through to completion.

  • Commercially aware - You will be supporting the production of bids for new land and projects, making sure that you're positioning the business in line with local partners and their H&S objectives.

  • An innovator - You'll thrive on new ideas and challenging traditional methods of working. You'll win the hearts and minds of a variety of stakeholders, both internally and externally, to ensure operational teams take accountability and ownership of H&S performance.

In terms of experience;

  • You must have experience working in the construction sector in building or civil engineering.

  • If you can demonstrate that you're able to build relationships at every level, from the building site to the boardroom, that will go a long way.

  • Some creativity and evidence of collaboratively solving problems in your current health & safety role are welcome.

You will be based in the North West of England, ideally within an hour's drive of Wigan, and there will be as many as 12 developments in your region. That will mean some driving, so a license is essential!

In return for your skills and expertise, you'll be met with a salary of up to £65,000, dependent on your experience, a car allowance or company car, and a discretionary bonus.
