Acre is pleased to be working with a globally-celebrated designer brand to identify a Health & Safety Business Partner. You'll be looking after the business' UK retail estate, and be a key advisor to the brand's operations, therefore having a keen interest in fashion is important. You'll also ensure compliance with all aspects of Health and Safety legislation, deliver training, and work with senior stakeholders to identify risks and promote best practice.

You'll be responsible for:

  • Partnering with retail management to ensure the company's estate is compliant with all aspects of Health and Safety legislation
  • Advising senior stakeholders of potential risks to the business and appropriate actions, working from the top down to instigate an inclusive and engaging health and safety culture
  • Designing and presenting relevant Health and Safety training for various levels of the business and ensuring this stays up to date with industry developments
  • Delivering regular updates and reports to key stakeholders on your progress and challenging their thinking around and awareness of risk management within the business
  • Liaising and maintaining relationships with external vendors and authorities on all health and safety matters, including incidents and investigations

This role comes at an exciting time for the company. Performance and growth are soaring, alongside an increasingly-cemented identity as a brand committed to action and global responsibility. You have the opportunity to take ownership of the Health and Safety function and ensure it develops into an effective and valuable part of the business.

To succeed, you'll need:

  • NEBOSH Certificate or other recognised Health and Safety qualification
