In this crucial role, you’ll work across the Chemical, Biological and Radiological Science Division and have the unique chance to drive our safety culture forward. You’ll use your impressive experience within a high hazard environment to manage our risks, and to ensure we have effective systems and processes in place.
As part of this, you’ll update senior leaders on changes to legislation and codes of practice, and keep abreast of anything that impacts the way Dstl works. Plus, with excellent collaborative skills, you’ll foster effective working relationships with regulatory bodies and check we’re operating in line with industry best practice. This’ll see you advising on the suitability of emergency plans and implementing regular tests of hazard management plans.
To join us, you’ll have proven leadership skills in a safety management role and a background of positively shaping a safety culture. This’ll be underpinned by your safety qualification at National Qualifications Framework Level 6 (Diploma), or equivalent experience. Importantly, you’ll be confident sharing your deep understanding of COSHH relationships. Plus, as a credible and respected individual, you’ll become the go-to person for specialist advice.
