We’re pleased to offer an opportunity to join a new risk management team in an established mental healthcare provider as Senior Health and Safety Advisor.

Firstly, a bit about us

St Andrew’s is the UK’s leading mental healthcare charity with an excellent and well-deserved reputation as a provider of specialist mental healthcare, and a top 20 charity overall.  We have a multi-disciplinary team of over 4,500 staff who deliver excellent, innovative and holistic care each day across our five locations.

As a charity, all of our profits are re-invested into new services and new facilities, a legacy which has carried on through our 178 year history.  Today we proudly continue to build excellent mental healthcare services – with Europe’s largest adolescent unit recently opened.  And because we’re independent, we have the flexibility to make a real difference in the world of mental health.  Joining us is your chance to make a big contribution to the lives of some of society’s most vulnerable people.

The role and person

This new role will report to the Head of Risk and will work as part of a central team providing health and safety and risk management support to the Charity’s operations.

The position will be expected to support the development and delivery of Charity-wide health and safety standards aimed at achieving continual improvement in health and safety performance whilst demonstrating compliance with statutory standards.

The successful candidate will have had experience of working in estates and facilities environments, with a familiarity with healthcare or care environments being an advantage. The role will require a CMIOSH or Grad IOSH qualification to be held.
