Your new company
A brand new, new purpose built manufacturing unit in Wigan. The company is within the FMCG sector of manufacturing and recently moved into this very impressive factory. The organisation also has a number of other sites including North Wales and European locations. The organisation have gone from strength to strength. This particular site has just over 200 staff and operate 24/7. The role I am recruiting for offers flexible working. The organisation has a good track record in safety and has management commitment to continually make it better.

You will be the sole H&S representative on site but will have the support from the wider group H&S team. You will be familiar and experienced within a number of areas including Hazop, Puwer, LOTO and COSHH. Each day will be different and will include risk assessments, method statements, audits, toolbox talks and encouraging and potentially changing culture.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be experienced within FMCG environments and b qualified to NEBSOH general. You will be confident in compliance and auditing. You will also have a friendly, welcoming yet influential personality. You will also understand continuous improvement culture and importance. You will be confident working alone and will either already be in a role with some senior responsibility or be ready to take that next step from advisor into leadership.

What you'll get in return
