Candidates should be qualified EHS Professionals and be able to demonstrate their ability to operate successfully at a senior level in a management role. This should include a period of time operating in a food or drink

You should be able to demonstrate a proactive attitude to continuously improving delivery of EHS within the business, drawing on past experience of overcoming challenges and/or resistance from others, to ensure best practice becomes the norm and improved ways of working are maintained. You will be able to liaise effectively with colleagues at all levels, both on and off site, to take responsibility for delivering the planned EHS strategy. This will involve the audit and review of safety management systems and subsequent action points. Understanding the need for a strong reputation in EHS, and how it links to 'brand and company image' you should have been an integral part of your previous business success. It is equally important that candidates can demonstrate a good capability to influence and communicate effectively at the most senior levels in an organisation. Experience of doing this in a unionised environment, maintaining a positive working relationship, is
key. Project management and evolution of a strong EHS Culture will be key components of the role. The post holder will be capable of channelling the inputs of all concerned creating a common purpose.
