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

This business, a FTSE 100 listed multinational extractives firm, know that their future must be a safe and sustainable one. Following a group-wide strategic review into health & safety performance, the business is intent on creating change and is looking for someone like you to be their pioneer.

Day to day, you'll be working with all functions and divisions within the business to investigate significant safety incidents and advise on learnings, as well as both corrective and preventative actions. You'll work closely with the Head of Operational Safety to deliver this significant step change in health & safety performance across the group.

You'll be;

* A confident and experienced investigator - You'll be the group's global lead for significant safety-related incidents using the LFI investigative processes and tools, including defining direct and contributing causes, absent and failed controls, and corrective and preventative actions.
* An inspiring and charismatic leader - You'll be leading investigation teams to identify systemic, cultural, behavioural and management system deficiencies that contribute to incidents. You'll also empower workers to take ownership and accountability of organisational safety change required to improve H&S performance.
* A team player - You'll thrive on identifying and sharing key organisational learnings and actions from specific incidents, systemic analysis of incidents, and incident trends. You'll also conduct executive briefings on incident causation and corrective and preventative actions to institutionalise change to resiliency.

In terms of experience;

* It's important that you have experience in industrial incident investigation and systemic learning from incidents.
* You will have previous experience in an investigative role function within the aviation, nuclear, rail, oil & gas, mining or manufacturing sectors.
* It's vital that you have experience in a senior leadership role within a technical environment.
* You'll need an undergraduate qualification in a relevant discipline.
* If you can demonstrate that you're able to build relationships at every level, from the "shop floor" to boardroom, that will go a long way.
* This is a remote position - you can be based in either the UK, South Africa, Chile or Australia, although you will need to travel regularly.

In return for your skills and expertise, you'll be met with a salary of up to £88,000 dependent on your experience, a car allowance worth £11,600, and a target bonus of 30%. 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.
