Winchester City Council is seeking an experienced Health and Safety Advisor to assist the Council in implementing and maintaining a comprehensive health and safety management system to meet legal obligations and to deliver best practice.  This part time role (3 days/22.5 hours a week) will work in support of the Service Lead – Public Protection and must have a NEBOSH diploma in Occupational Safety and Health or equivalent qualification and a proven track record of delivering health and safety for medium to large organisation. 

The successful candidate must be competent to write health and safety policy, management systems, risk assessments and conduct workplace audits to ensure safe working practice.  They must be able to investigate accidents and dangerous occurrences and confidently report on and make recommendations to senior management. They must be self-assured, possess developed communication skills, good judgement and be able to work under pressure to establish priorities and deliver to deadlines. A positive attitude is a must, as the successful candidate will be expected to assist with developing a great safety culture throughout the organisation.

Although the post holder is expected to primarily deliver internal health and safety advice, they will be working within the wider Public Protection Service, which delivers an external facing Local Authority health and safety enforcement role.  As such they will be expected to support and deliver resilience across both functions.

The City Council is committed to continuous service improvement and staff development.
