To be considered for the Site EHS Manager opportunity you MUST have experience of working in a manufacturing or industrial engineering environment with the ability to work with all levels of the business. You will be qualified to NEBOSH Diploma level or equivalent with a minimum of 3 years experience within an engineering environment.
