Our innovative Property Services team are looking to attract a passionate Health and Safety professional to join their winning team.

What your role will be

As a Health and Safety Auditor, you will be a key point of contact for Health and Safety advice for colleagues.  You’ll be an ambassador for Health and Safety best practice, and linked to this you will ensure there is health and safety culture embedded throughout the affordable housing function.

You will identify areas of good practice, and areas that require development through the delivery of an effective audit and inspection programme, across the South region of England. You’ll focus on the management of hazards such as fire, legionella, asbestos, electricity and general health and safety in our residential premises with internal communal areas. Based on the findings of your audits, you will work with each business area and the Health and Safety Team to implement change.

You’ll also be required to carry out playground safety inspections, deliver health and safety team talks, and deliver training as and when appropriate, such as conflict management and manual handling.  Furthermore you may occasionally be asked to support colleagues in other regions, and liaise with enforcement agencies such as the fire service.

As the role progresses, we will look to expand the role to cover CDM inspection compliance, accident and incident investigations, and additional duties as directed by the Senior Auditor.

Please note, due to the travel involved in this role, we require you to hold a valid UK driving license. N.B. As an Agile/home based worker we will ensure that you are equipped to be mobile as and when needed; you will focus on the South region only, but may on the odd occasion, have to support colleagues in other regions.

Your background

In order to be successful in this role, you will need to be a highly proficient communicator that is able to positively influence individuals when required.  You’ll feel comfortable challenging people were necessary, and taking them on a journey of change.  You’ll be practical by nature and solution focused. You’ll be able to organise your own workload using your own initiative, manage time effectively, be computer literate, and have good written and presentation skills.

It is essential that you have proven Health and Safety experience relating to the management, repair and maintenance of residential premises, and hold the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety or equivalent. You’ll also have experience of conducting health and safety audits, and delivering health and safety training.
