£40,000 - £60,000 yearly
Newham, Greater London
Health & Safety Advisor – RC Frames & Groundworks
Initial Project – Stratford, East London
£40,000 - £60,000 + Package
About the Opportunity:
We have been asked to source a Health & Safety Advisor to work as part of a team on a large £30m RC frame & groundwork package in Stratford, East London for this top subcontractor.
Your responsibility will be to uphold the excellent safety standards that this contractor currently maintains across all of their sites. Liaising with site teams, project management, and office-based staff to make sure health & safety practice is monitored, controlled, and applied. The culture of this business and team will already be on your side, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to bring your ideas to the fold and look to work with the team to ever improve such an important part of the process while working on some truly fantastic projects in London.
About the Company:
Established over 25 years ago and based out of their head office in Surrey, this £140 million turnover business specialises in Concrete Frames, Groundworks, and Basement Construction. With satellite offices in the South West and Midlands, they have strong coverage of projects with package values ranging from £5 million up to £45 million each (currently), covering the residential, commercial, leisure, and education sectors. We have been preferred suppliers to this company for over 10 years and maintain a strong relationship with all the directors of the business.
What sets this business apart is their focus on safety and rewarding their staff;
The MD takes an active role in the safety department making sure it is at the forefront of everything they do, not only to please clients but most importantly to make sure every person goes home safely at the end of every day. He is proud to stand by their safety record and the constant measures they take to maintain and improve this department.
In addition to safety, the focus on rewarding their staff is demonstrated in the constant career development that is offered and the targeted bonus structures that are in place to help encourage all the teams to go that little further. I truly believe this company operates in an excellent way.
About the Requirements:
To be considered for this opportunity all applicants must hold NEBOSH qualifications (ideally NEBOSH construction) and if possible, also an applicable degree (although the degree isn’t a must). You will also need to have worked for a rival RC frame and groundwork subcontractor in the UK so you have an understanding of the works involved, the environment they work in, the risks on the packages involves, and the culture of these types of businesses. Outside of this, the only other point to note is this business works throughout London and the city centre, so all applicants should live in or around the London area to make the daily travel sensible.
About the Benefits:
For this position, I am targeting individuals earning anywhere from £40,000 to £60,000 per annum as a lot will be decided depending on the individual level of experience. In addition to basic salary, this business does offer a comprehensive benefits package including additions such as travel allowance and pension. But the real attraction outside of just remuneration should be that if successful, you’ll have the benefit of working for one of the best companies in this sector and all the experience/exposure that comes with that!
How to Apply:
I am more than happy to discuss this opportunity with people over the phone or face to face in a fully confidential manner (you can get to know me while I get to know you). And I know this is an incestuous sector and I fully understand the importance of keeping things discrete.
Alternatively, it would be ideal to see a copy of your CV to understand your previous experience and employment. In line with GDPR, nothing will be done with your CV/details until we have discussed the role in detail anyway, but having gained an understanding of your formal past, this may help when we come to talk and discuss the option.
