An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced health and safety professional to join the University in a newly-formed role. You will be an enthusiastic and motivated individual who will join the existing team, reporting to the Director of Health and Safety. You will lead on the University auditing process and programme and on the University Health and Safety Management System, supporting colleagues in the Health and Safety Department and wider University.
