Health and Safety Officer

Are you a highly motivated individual, with an interest in health and safety? Do you have Health and Safety experience and are looking for a new challenge? Do you want to be part of an ambitious team in a challenging and ever changing environment? Do you have the ability to support the operational delivery of a responsive health and safety strategy for the University?  

We are looking to appoint a number of highly motivated and non-bureaucratic individuals to support the delivery of the health and safety management system as a member of a diverse team of Health and Safety Professionals.

A flexible and supportive approach will be required, combined with experience of interpreting and applying health and safety legislation in a complex environment.
