job description

Randstad are currently working exclusively with one of Victoria’s leading Civil Infrastructure contractors, to secure the services of a knowledgeable and experienced HSE Advisor.

This client has grown exponentially over the past 5 years and has an excellent reputation across the Civil space, with a strong track record of delivering complex projects ($10m - $150m) on time and within budget.

Projects vary across Roads/Highways, Rail, Substructures, Renewables & Marine, with the business being recognised for its innovative and forward thinking approach in technology & project delivery.

Reporting to one of the region’s leading HSEQ Managers, you will be responsible for the following:

  • Making sure all sites are fully compliant to a very high standard of site based safety standards.
  • Provision of strong leadership for an Incident & Injury free work environment.
  • To make sure everyone goes home safe at the end of each working day.
  • Coordinating all Health & Safety strategies & initiatives, as directed by the HSEQ Manager and those leading the business at senior management level.
  • Managing all Audits & Compliance, including communication with all internal & external auditors.
  • Development of functional relationships with all key stakeholders (both onsite & corporate) that have a responsibility for employee safety.

In essence, if you have worked in a similar role across the Civil Infrastructure space to a high level then these responsibilities should be second nature. As well as working in a similar role, my client is keen to look at candidates with the following:

  • 5+ years minimum site based civil experience, preferably across VicRoads projects.
  • Minimum Cert IV in Occupational Health & Safety, however a Diploma would be preferred.
  • An up-to-date understanding and interest in HSEQ Construction legislation.
  • The ability to influence and converse freely with workers on site, managers in the business & board level directors.
  • Ambition, drive & the hunger to progress and better yourself.

For the right candidate a package of up to $150k+ is on offer. Get in touch with myself (Ciaran McElhinney) at our Melbourne office to find out more (ciaran.mcelhinney@randstad.com.au / 0413 232 827).

At Randstad, we are passionate about providing equal employment opportunities and embracing diversity to the benefit of all. We actively encourage applications from any background.
