Group Health & Safety Assurance Manager

Hours: 35 hours per week (flexible working will be considered)

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Health & Safety professional to join Midland Heart as group Health & Safety Assurance Manager. This dynamic role is responsible for the delivery of our Health & Safety strategy and lead the Health & Safety team to enable the efficient implementation and delivery of Midland Heart’s business objectives.

It goes without saying that you will be an experienced Health & Safety Assurance leader who connects with our purpose and mission. Working closely with decision makers in other departments you will promote a positive health and safety culture, coaching and enabling strategic leaders, managers, staff and partners to take full ownership for their health and safety responsibilities.

Critical to the role is your ability to provide advice to the Executive Team and the Board on Health & Safety that challenges opinions, influences decision making and initiates change.

The ability to lead your team to success is essential. Engaging the team and inspiring them to deliver a first-class service will be key to the role.

Who are we?  Midland Heart is one of the leading UK housing businesses providing support to help people to live independently. Founded in 1925 we deliver housing and support by providing 33,000 high quality affordable homes to over 70,000 customers across 55 local authority areas. We have a new corporate strategy and plan to take us to 2020 and beyond; we are ambitious and confident about our future.

Our ideal candidate will have some knowledge of our sector but that’s not essential.  More important to us is that you are ambitious about the value a highly functioning Health & Safety Assurance Department can add to a business; and have proven experience of delivering this.  You will be willing to push the boundaries to get us to think differently and be able to engage and influence stakeholders at all levels.  A willingness and ability to work collaboratively across our business is essential.

What can we offer you?  We are a flexible employer, focussed on outputs. Based at our Bath Row office in the centre of Birmingham, this role is offered on a permanent basis with a salary of £52,401 per annum. Alongside a generous leave entitlement, you will have access to generous pension arrangements, and a range of voluntary and salary sacrifice benefits.

To apply please register on our candidate portal and submit a comprehensive CV setting out your career history with a cover letter of no more than 2 pages which clearly explains how you think you meet the requirements of this role and which demonstrates your career achievements.

Closing date for receipt of completed applications is 5pm on 31 July 2017.

Interviews and Assessment will take place on 7 August 2017.

If you feel you meet the brief, we’d love to hear from you.  For a confidential discussion you are able to contact Rebecca Neill, Director of Assurance on 0845 850 1020 ext. 5804 or 07771 767 396
