Health & Safety Business Partner
Our aim is to create better places for people across the UK to work, live & travel whilst achieving zero harm to our people, the public & the environment and we believe that to do this we need to have the right culture & behaviours in place.
We are now looking to appoint a Health & Safety professional who can partner with our Business and Account Directors & provide a proactive, professional and consultative approach to Health & Safety.
As a Health & Safety Business Partner you will support the senior levels of our business to formulate effective compliance and improvement plans aligned to Amey’s Health & Safety strategy and those of our customers across our Rail business. You will act as a commercially aware, focused & business minded partner for Health & Safety, collaborating with the leadership teams to help ensure a collective vision that extends beyond health and safety systems and compliance and focuses on our people and their behaviour to help create a positively reinforced learning culture.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for ambassadors and role models for the HSEQ function who will utilise their business acumen, engaging communication and influencing style to promote Health & Safety and provide expert support across our leadership team. Ideally you will be a ‘Chartered’ Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) however, the essential minimum professional requirements should be GradIOSH and working towards being Chartered.
You will have a proven track record of providing Health & Safety expertise within a safety critical environment, ideally from directly in the rail industry.

Due to our wide spread of rail contracts at Amey the successful applicant must be comfortable travelling to locations as required. A good contractual base is likely to the be the Midlands to support this, but an alternative location can be agreed for the right candidate.

We place great value on our people and the contribution they make to our business, that’s why we aim to offer a competitive benefits package to all of our employees.
