Health, Safety and Environment Advisor, Wales

Reference number: A3051119

Location: North Wales Office

We are seeking a committed, outgoing and enthusiastic individual to support our health, safety and environmental management systems across RSPB Cymru.

The role will involve advising staff and volunteers on health and safety matters across the full range of our operations in the region, which includes nature reserves, membership recruitment, research projects, shops, catering outlets and offices (including our Wales HQ in Cardiff). Our network of fantastic nature reserves covers the whole of Wales and includes Lake Vyrnwy, Ynys-hir, South Stack Cliffs, Conwy and Ramsey Island. The reserves cover almost every type of habitat including uplands, coast, woodland and wetlands. You will also lead the monitoring of environmental management standards as RSPB retains and improves its external accreditation for its environmental management system. A knowledge of or an interest in nature conservation would be an advantage.

You will have a pragmatic and problem solving approach to health, safety and wellbeing, and be willing to learn how to deal with a wide range of issues in sometimes challenging and unusual situations. You will be self-reliant, have good interpersonal skills, be IT literate and be willing and able to travel throughout Wales and elsewhere in RSPB when required.

We are looking for at least a Technician Member of IOSH or equivalent looking to use your health and safety knowledge in new and challenging situations. Wellbeing is also of significant importance to our RSPB culture and an understanding of the principles of visitor risk management in a countryside context is highly desirable.

Welsh language is desirable but not essential for this role
