Are you an experienced Health & Safety professional? Are you looking for a varied, "hands-on" role? Then come and join a national charity supporting people with learning disabilities! Reporting to the Health and Safety Manager, you will assist with delivering technical advice and support to operational colleagues around the business. You'll be someone who can translate legal requirements into practical solutions, and who can mentor managers, helping them understand how statutory changes affect them.
A key part of your role will be to collate and analyse data and information both for individual incidents and for our regular reporting to the senior management team. You'll write clear reports that are easy to understand but don't skimp on the details. You'll undertake accident investigations, keeping things calm and factual and focusing on how to learn for the future.
You will also carry out audits and help to deliver training courses. This is a full-time role, Monday to Friday, with some flexibility needed. Ideally, you'll be based at our head office in Milton Keynes, but we could accommodate someone based at one of our regional offices around the country. You will travel widely across the organisation, with occasional overnight stays.
You'll have practical experience of Health and Safety, ideally gained in a social care, education or social housing environment. You'll understand the ways in which relevant legislation affects vulnerable people. It would be helpful if you've worked in regulatory environments including CQC, CIW and Ofsted.
You'll be proficient in the use of MS Office, especially Excel, and in the use of online databases. Ideally, you will have a relevant qualification such as NEBOSH Certificate or Diploma, but if you have the right experience we would be prepared to support you to become qualified. You must be a driver with your own transport, as you will travel to our locations around the country.
