Job Description

The Regional Health & Safety Advisor role:

This is a fantastic construction Health & Safety Advisor position with one of the region's and the country's best and most well-known construction contractors. From the word go, you'll be involved in high profile new build construction and major refurbishment projects (up to the value of £15m) in the commercial, residential, and retail sectors - managing site teams and managers to support the implementation and continuous driving of a positive Health & Safety culture.

Based between the Warrington office and on various construction projects, you'll develop close relationships with directors and senior managers - driving Health & Safety from the top down. You'll be able to self-manage your diary; working around the various operational sites across the North of the UK and building relationships with (sometimes challenging) construction site teams - driving a firm but fair approach to achieving a "Target Zero" goal, minimising the risk of incidents and accidents, and improving the Health & Safety performance, striving towards excellence on site.

You'll need to be prepared to travel to and from sites, and possibly stay away perhaps one night per week (sometimes less or more as necessary depending on what the workload is like on site). However, you'll be well rewarded for your commitment to driving the culture, and the business will leave you to manage your own diary - so it's an autonomous role giving you the opportunity to shine.

Your skills and experience:

Being at or working towards Grad IOSH status will be ideal, as will holding or working towards the NEBOSH Diploma or equivalent (NVQ Level 4, for example). Anything higher than this will be highly desirable (CMIOSH for example). Experience in construction environments working for a main contractor is essential for the work you'll be looking after in this role, and you'll be able to demonstrate the ability to build and maintain strong working relationships with construction staff and management. You'll also have experience of subcontractor monitoring and control, ensuring they are adhering to the Health & Safety terms set out in their contracts and remain loyal to your positive Health & Safety approach. Audits, inspections, risk assessments and accident reporting are all fundamental parts of the role, but it doesn't stop there.

You'll have the opportunity to work with renowned and reputable construction directors, and an exceptional Head of Health & Safety, who'll support you in the "firm but fair" implementation of your Health & Safety approach, as well as the progression of your career. You'll also get exposure to a diverse business, which will include a significant contribution to the reviewing and improvement of the Health & Safety policies, procedures and management systems, giving you ownership of the progress in the coming years. It's a full 360-degree position, giving you the opportunity to balance hands on, site based Health & Safety with the development of the corporate Health & Safety strategy.
