Health / Safety Project Leader – Horizons Regional Council – Manawatu

2 year fixed term
Manawatu Based
We are looking for a Health & Safety guru to take on this exciting project leadership role.

During 2008/09 the Councils in the Manawatu-Wanganui region established MW LASS to provide shared services. One of the current projects is to coordinate the development and implementation of Health & Safety systems and culture across a number of MW LASS Councils.

As the Health & Safety Project Leader you will support each Council to meet and exceed legislative health and safety requirements and achieve WSMP accreditation at tertiary level. Your work will also focus on contractor management and the development of a safety focused organisational culture. Your success will be realised once each Council has the tools and capability to manage their own Health & Safety function beyond the term of the project.

To be successful in this role you will have a relevant tertiary qualification or equivalent experience. You will be a self starter with excellent communication skills and a flair for project management. As someone who is skilled at building relationships with multiple stake holders, you will easily be able to manage their expectations and create momentum quickly.

This role is based in Feilding, but will require travel throughout the Region (including some overnight stays).
