Full Time

Health, Safety and Environment Manager is required for a multi-site role with a major food manufacturing company.

The purpose of this role is to lead the effective implementation of Health and Safety, Environmental (HSE) and other risk management systems across two manufacturing sites ensuring legal compliance, risk reduction, accident reduction and the minimising of environmental impact.

The role sits in the Operational Risk Management department (ORM) and is part of the senior management team, reporting directly to the Site Manager. Following a sustained period of growth and restructure there is a need to drive the HSE agenda to the front of people's thoughts. Alongside driving behavioural change you will look at latent risk, equipment design and future capex plans with the engineering team to ensure future risk is minimised.


  • Act as safety role model, exhibiting best practice behaviours
  • Support team leaders with accident investigation
  • Conduct monthly safety audits, behavioural observations and quarterly inspections
  • Carry out internal safety and environmental training
  • Track and report on ORM performance on a weekly, monthly and quarterly basis
  • Implement group Health and Safety programs

For this role we are looking for someone with a relevant safety, environment or engineering degree with experience in NEBOSH and ISO14001. Previous work history in food or manufacturing would be preferred, however other industries may be considered. What is crucial is the ability to bring passion, energy and drive to this role and be able to communicate effectively to a wide range of colleagues. This role requires someone who makes themselves visible and available to colleagues in the factory and doesn't hide away behind a computer screen.

As part of a globally recognisable food company you could be helping to ensure the safety of people creating products for millions of people. Send you CV today for consideration.
