At the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust, we aim to provide the highest quality education to enable every pupil to realise their full potential. Rated as one of the top 7 academy trusts nationally, LEAD have 20 academies currently and further growth planned. This is a unique opportunity to join a thriving and successful organisation.
As an experienced and self-motivated Health & Safety professional, you will partner the Board and play a key role in ensuring a safe workplace environment for the Trust to help us achieve this.
In this newly created role, you will be responsible for championing the Trust’s statutory obligations via the provision of training, regular policy review, inspections and reporting. You will bring a ‘hands on’ and commercially focussed approach to maintaining and developing LEAD’s approach to the safety of our employees and pupils both on our sites and off site trips. You will also be pivotal in securing and developing a client base across the region to grow the health and safety services and capacity within the Trust.
You will be able to demonstrate the ability to constructively challenge senior stakeholders, with a successful track record of providing competent risk focused Health, Safety and Environmental advice, ideally previously within a Local Government, Education, Social Housing or Facilities Management sector.
This is a full-time position and will be based in Nottingham, although travel between the sites will be expected. In return, LEAD offer excellent benefits including, 38 days holiday (inclusive of bank holidays) plus a generous local authority pension scheme.
This is a superb opportunity to develop and progress professionally and to impact upon children’s learning.
