• Collate management information and reports to provide regular H&S updates and insights
• Supporting activities to create awareness and promote the implementation of policies and objectives
• Facilitate the sharing of best practice and learning across the region and the wider safety team

• NEBOSH certificate.
• NEBOSH Diploma / NVQ 5 or equivalent.
