Health and Safety Manager

At FCDO Services, we provide secure construction, digital and logistics services to all sorts of government level customers, including the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. We help keep people, information and assets safe and secure through impressive projects, like making an embassy earthquake resistant or ensuring government teams have secure IT infrastructure.

To keep doing the pivotal work that we do, we need a Health Manager to make the difference across the organisation, delving into a variety of work that will keep us safe and compliant.

Bring safety and security to everything we do

You’ll be the person who makes sure we’re running things in a safe and secure way; providing support and guidance on the application of CDM Regulations and managing risk across construction projects.
Our business carries out a diverse range of operations across just about every country in the world, which means each day brings you new challenges as you share your expertise to all parts of our services. We’re looking for a problem solver who can seek out solutions and ensure safety within complex projects across the international delivery platform.

The role will see you design and provide Health & Safety policies and procedures, and deliver compliant guidance across everything we do. This could be through a range of ways, from coaching colleagues, producing assurance reports, to providing constructive advice. Not only that, through audits and inspections, you’ll ensure we’re correctly following these procedures – and where things can be better, you’ll help us improve and develop.
We’ll also turn to you to help integrate health and safety into project bids and tender assessments, which have direct impact on the overall performance of FCDO Services and our supply chain.

Apply your expertise on an international impact

Keeping everyone safe involves, well – everyone. So you’ll need to be good with people; forging and building effective relationships with Project Managers, Regional Technical Leads and our sub-contractors. It means, you will be confident at negotiating, and articulating clear information that can influence and persuade. You will also share our team spirit as you work across diverse teams.

To hit the ground running, it is important that you have a NEBOSH General Certificate and that you are a Graduate IOSH member. On top of that, you will bring relevant Health and Safety management experience specialising in estate management, compliance with CDM 2015, and construction projects.

Be rewarded for your influential work

We’re asking for a lot, but you’ll get a lot back in return. First, there’s the excellent benefits that come with being a Civil Servant, including a great pension, and not to mention the sense of purpose you’ll feel from protecting the country’s interests. Altogether, it’s your job, bigger.

All our employees have to be security cleared before being appointed, so you will need to undergo a vetting process as part of your application. This role requires you to go through Developed Vetting (DV). You can find out more about vetting on our website.

It takes a diverse team to protect a diverse world.
The vital work we do takes an incredible community of colleagues, with different skills, backgrounds, cultures and identities. We support every individual, so that you always know you’re welcome and valued. It’s what makes us a Disability Confident employer. And Employers for Carers. And it’s how you know you’re joining an inspiring, inclusive organisation.
