As the successful candidate, your role will be a management position supporting effective SHE delivery within the Enterprise Utilities business. Reporting to the Head of SHE Enterprise, you will promote relevant health, safety and environmental policies to keep people, assets and the environment safe from harm. You'll be responsible for reinforcing positive safety values and challenging negative behaviours, incorporating lessons learnt from any incident investigations.

A good understanding of SHE Management Systems, risk assessment techniques and experience of incident investigation will be vital. You'll act as a confident role model to build strong leadership teams, with a natural flair for forging relationships, able to motivate your team and work against challenging constraints.
