Job Ref: 441104108

HSE Recruitment are currently working exclusively with a global name in the manufacturing industry, on the recruitment of an interim Health and Safety Manager for a site in Telford. This role will be covering a period of approximately 6 months to begin with.

Our client has gone through a period of restructuring and strengthening and as a result they are looking for a forward-thinking Health and Safety Manager who can occupy this new position. The role will be a mix of maintaining the status quo, including systems, as well as with a hands on and operational focus. The day to day of the role will involve policies and procedures, site inductions, accident and incident investigation etc. Safety systems are well established on the site so there should be minimal innovation needed – so focus will really be on your ability to engage during this period of change. There will be an aspect of working closely with external reporting lines so ideally you will be able to show excellent experience of working with global external reports.

Automotive manufacturing experience would be highly desirable, but we can consider candidates from a general manufacturing environment with the right attitude, as well as knowledge of Kaizen/Lean. You will need to be NEBOSH Certificate (or equivalent) and have the right attitude - outgoing and gregarious, although not too much, and with the ability to flex and adapt to a variety of situations as needed. We are definitely looking for a modern engaging professional and not an old school policeman type.

Our client is an essential business and work is continuing throughout lockdowns so you will be required to be able to attend site daily, and ideally will be local due to travel restrictions. Our client has put excellent safety precautions and social distancing in place to enable work to continue safely.

In return you will receive a salary of between £55-60k per annum pro rata. For more information please contact
