As a business, Hermes is shaped by our four values of Do the right thing, Dare to be different, Strive for more and Be customer obsessed. We run our business by these values and they are reflected in all of our positions, especially for newly created roles like our Health & Safety Officer covering our Central area.
Hermes operates 2 national Hubs, 26 Depots & 500+ Sub-Depots employing 3,000+ Hermes Employees with 13,000 Self-employed Couriers accessing our sites, because of our scale we cannot overstate how important it is to operate safe, compliant sites that are leading the industry in embedding safe working practices.
Reporting in to our HSES Manager, you will be at the forefront of continuing the implementation of legislative Health, Safety & Environmental policies and internal Hermes policies. You will business partner with the Area Manager for your area & individual site Depot Managers to ensure that your sites not only meet all current HSES legislation but are pro-actively encouraging HSES best practice.
You will assist in both the creation & implementation of all new Risk (Health & Safety, Environmental, Dangerous Goods) policy, processes and procedures, initiatives & other mandatory processes such as quality ISO901 and Environmental ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001.
We operate a very pro-active HSES team and this is shown in our gaining of the ISO 9001/14001 transition standards 5 months early & ahead of many logistic businesses. You must be of a similar mind-set to be successful in this role.
You have to be a confident and articulate communicator as you will be responsible for building strong working relationships with your stakeholders; as you will deliver planned initiatives identified in the National UK HS&E Plan via pro-active and practical approach to all Risk matters.
To build those strong working relationships, there is the expectation that you will be on site at least twice a month so a full driving license is necessary for this role. The Depots that you will support are Coventry, Birmingham & Nottingham
So being within a commutable distance of these sites would be preferred, ideally located near Northamptonshire or Milton Keynes.
Because of the 24/7 nature of our operation, this is not a Monday-Friday, 9-5pm position. To support our operation fully, there will be occasions when you will be on site across the night shift and potentially weekends as needed.
This role is initially a 6 month contract but could become permanent
Ideally, to be successful in this role you will have experience of managing the HSES policies and implementation of them in a Logistics, FMCG or Manufacturing environment, either multi or single site. You will have IOSH and NEBOSH qualifications and the ability to influence stakeholders at all levels.
We understand that our HSES Officer position is not an easy job, it’s a lot of responsibility but should you believe you have the experience and desire to implement change, we want to hear from you. We can offer you a Salary that’s hard to beat, Bonus, Company Car, 26 Days annual leave plus bank holidays, great benefits including extra opt-in benefits.
Hermes isn't just about parcels; it's about people and being part of a team. Building those key relationships internally and externally, delivering an excellent customer service experience.
