About the company

High-performance organisation with a very clear purpose – to improve the wellbeing of all within their reach.

Growing rapidly, this organisation has the drive to transform the forestry and wood processing sector through modernisation, growing the domestic and international markets as well as supporting climate change.

About the role

This organisation is looking for someone who fits seamlessly into their team. The successful candidate will need to be humble, technically strong and can influence people in the right way. Effectively this is a standalone role (although still part of the larger Safety Team), responsible for supporting staff throughout the directorate.

Critical risks include remote working, working near water and potentially aggressive interactions. You’d need to have the know-how on incident investigations and Bowtie Analysis. The HSW Team lead is also in the process of rolling out a new Mental Health Workplace initiative. It’s likely that you would be involved in the early stages of its development and implementation. Experience in this area would be useful.

The organisation offers a highly flexible approach to work, with flexible hours and WFH arrangements for at least part of the week.
