This is a unique opportunity to be coached and led by a H&S leader, where together you will design, develop and implement health, safety, environmental and quality systems for a mid-sized, commercial construction business. If you have strengths in process and systems, enjoy connecting with and influencing people, and like to challenge yourself through creating systems (not just maintaining), then this is the role for you.

About the company:

Sansom are industry leaders in the specialty construction industry, with a team of 150 skilled people working across projects from waterproofing the City Rail Link tunnels to carrying out specialist concrete repairs on commercial buildings.

They have a fantastic, diverse team that has built a lot of camaraderie and enjoys the culture that is Sansom. Whether it is the run club, fishing trips, fundraisers, family fun days or just office banter, there is a great team who like to work hard, yet play too. And with up to 60 sites across Auckland each day, there is plenty of challenge, variety and opportunity to get out and about.

About the role:

Having recently appointed a H&S leader and with numerous ISO accreditations to maintain, Sansom are on a mission to keep improving. They are making health, safety, environmental and quality (HSEQ) systems an integral part of the way the business operates - after all, good HSEQ practices are good business practices. As such, your role will be responsible for:

- Assisting in the strategic development, implementation, and continual improvement of the Health, Safety, Environment, and Quality (HSEQ) management systems

- Creating and delivering training programs

- Conducting site inspections and audits

- Managing risk assessments

- Investigating incidents

- Ensuring compliance with relevant legislation

- Playing a critical part in promoting a proactive health, safety, environmental and quality culture, where you will build rapport and trust with the on-site teams, subcontractors, and clients.

About you:

First and foremost we are looking for your H&S experience and knowledge within a complex, site based business. Therefore alongside commercial and civil construction experience, we are also open to another industry that faces similar H&S challenges that comes with variable, site based work.

In addition, you will need to have:

- Professional certification in health and safety to level 4 e.g., Certified Safety Professional (CSP), National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) Certificate, or a similar New Zealand-specific qualification

- 3 - 5 years relevant experience, giving you a solid understanding of New Zealand's health and safety guidelines, procedures, and the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015

- Experience of both onsite coaching, training and conducting audits, combined with experience in creating processes, policies and training material

- Process driven with an eye for detail

- An interest in technology and automation

- Strong relationship management - you will be able to relate to a diverse workforce

Why this role:

You will be joining Sansom at a pivotal time in their HSEQ journey - from new apps and technology, to full HSEQ systems being created, this is a chance to be a part of their next stage of growth and build some ‘firsts’ for your own CV.

This is a full time role based in Grafton, and the salary/package will match your experience.
