A rare opportunity has arisen within a long established engineering company for a Health, Safety and Environmental Co-Ordinator to join their team on a permanent basis.

* Constantly review and improve the company's approach to health, safety, and environmental legislation.
* Investigate accidents, near misses and environmental non-conformities to ensure policies and procedures are constantly evolving.
* Ensure HSE best practice is documented in safe systems of work, where this is applicable.
* Maintain the company's electronic library of HSE documents.

The successful candidate must have the following:

* NEBOSH general certificate.
* A background in engineering, ideally in the foundry industry.
* Science or Chemistry GCSE at grade C or above.
* Good knowledge of techniques for planning, monitoring, and controlling projects.
* Be comfortable dealing directly with employees of all levels.
* Experience in a health and safety role.
* Experience training and presenting in groups.
