How would you like to join our brand new central Safety & Operations Assurance Team here at Stagecoach?

It’s a really exciting time for the team and we are looking for a Safety & Operations Business Partner to provide expert safety, environmental and operational support to our southern Bus Operating Companies (London, South and South East to be precise!)

Our team do a brilliant job of providing safety, environmental and operational assurance, specialist advice and support to all of the Stagecoach Bus Operating Companies. Speaking of Stagecoach, we are the largest provider of bus services in the UK with 24,000 employees and over 100 million passenger journeys a year. Safety is at the core of everything we do across all of our operations at Stagecoach. It is our number one priority and so this is a really important role in our business!

You’ll be one of 5 Business Partners based across five regions of the UK, providing support to our businesses in London, South (Basingstoke to Portsmouth) and South East (Herne Bay to Eastbourne). Between them, these Operating Companies undertake an incredible 390 million passenger journeys a year!

To put a little more meat on the bones in terms of what you’ll be doing…

Building proactive relationships with your Operating Companies (it’s a really hands on role!)

Assisting your Operating Companies with identifying, managing and reducing their safety, environmental and operational risks through the establishment of a risk management approach.

Providing an independent challenge to the safety performance of each Operating Company.

Undertaking major accident and incident investigations, identifying root cause and making recommendations for future prevention.

Providing assurance to the senior management of each Operating Company and the senior leadership team on safety, environmental and operational performance by undertaking audit and other assurance monitoring activities.

Undertaking occupational health monitoring as required (such as hand-arm vibration, noise and air quality).

This role comes with loads of responsibility but we’ll provide you with all the support you need!

Here comes the “what we’ll need from you” bit…

You’ll be an experienced safety practitioner, used to operating across multiple locations and passionate about making a difference.

You’ll be a Chartered Member of the Institute of Occupational Safety & Health (or be working towards it) and have experience of management system auditing.

You’ll be a brilliant communicator (as you’ll have the opportunity to work with our employees at all levels of the organisation!)

You’ll understand the importance of being visible to the Operating Companies.

The important bits are:

Location is flexible but you must be able to be based 5 days a week in the area and be prepared to travel.

Salary is £36,000 (but flexible for the right candidate).  A company car will also be provided.

And that’s it! So if you like the sound of taking on an exciting challenge and joining our team, please apply. We can’t wait to hear from you.
