The Opportunity

Reporting to the Head of Health Safety and Wellbeing for Customers and Corporate, you'll lead a flexible team of HS&E Advisors. Your team will provide expert advice and operational support to around 1,250 employees and leaders across Smart Metering and Electric Vehicle Installations (SM&EVI), EDF Business Solutions (EBS) and Wholesale Market Services (WMS) in offices and the field.


In this key role, you'll contribute to helping position EDF as a leader in Health Safety and Wellbeing and helping Britain achieve Net Zero

Pay, benefits and culture

Alongside a competitive salary and a market-leading pension scheme, we offer a wide range of flexible benefits to support our people across all aspects of their lives.

Your rewards package includes a choice of benefits, such as electric vehicle leasing, enhanced parental leave, health insurance, discounts and employee pricing.


You’ll have access to support services for your physical and mental wellbeing including an Occupational Health Service, Employee Assistance Programme and Mental Health First Aiders and Employee Networks.

The business areas that you’ll support are located in various areas with key sites being London and the South East, Hove and Exeter.  Flexible working means you can work from home with role related weekly travel to site locations as needed.   We’ll provide a suite of IT equipment to ensure that you can work remotely comfortably and effectively.

At EDF, everyone’s welcome. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse environment where everyone has a voice and where you feel confident being yourself. We’re committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. We’d like our future workforce to have an equal gender balance, represent a broad mix of people from minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, those with a disability and supporting social mobility.

We’re a disability confident employer and we’ll do all we can to help with your application, making adjustments as you need.

We’ll value the difference you bring and offer opportunities for you to thrive and succeed.

What you’ll be doing

You’ll collaborate across our SM& EVI, EBS and WMS teams providing expert H&S advice for residential and business installations, sharing resources and driving continuous improvement through learning.


You’ll understand and manage the risk profiles across SM&EVI, EBS, and WMS, ensuring high-risk activities comply with policies and standards. As part of the Reimagining Field Project you’ll input and drive a cultural change from a Health Safety and Wellbeing perspective.


You’ll lead the end-to-end best practices in Health, Safety, and Wellbeing across all sites and contractors, developing plans and making sure that standards are met. You'll investigate incidents with senior leaders, learning from events and making recommendations for improvements.


You’ll monitor and enhance contractor HS&W performance, ensuring compliance. With autonomy, you’ll guide H&S decisions within the business context, advising senior leaders.


As the Senior Manager, you’ll steer the HS&W strategy using data to set objectives. You'll influence senior management to achieve Zero Harm and legal compliance. You'll develop strategies and policies, ensuring field activities meet all regulations.


Driving a culture of Health, Safety and Wellbeing, you'll identify improvement opportunities and solutions to support new business needs. You'll collaborate with companywide H&S experts, Trade Union partners, People partners, regulatory bodies, and third parties, providing guidance and support to your team and contribute to the maintenance of management systems and ISO standards.


Who you are


You’ll have a passion for people and strong focus on helping the Customers business achieve its goals. You'll be open minded to new ways of doing things and embody our Human Positive and Brave values, addressing behaviours that conflict with these values. You'll be able to build trust by empowering those around you and be able to recognise and take learnings when things don’t go to plan.  You’ll be able to think strategically, managing senior stakeholders comfortably while also able to get into the detail to understand business events and issues and learn from them to mitigate risks.


You’ll be open-minded, and ready to think differently, proactively and autonomously using your judgment to challenge ways of working and make decisions balanced with a health and safety lens.  Excellent communication, influencing, and stakeholder management skills are crucial.


Ideally you should have a NEBOSH Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety, NVQ Level 5 in Occupational Health and Safety, or equivalent experience. It’s a plus if you have other qualifications such as:


  • Chartered Membership of IOSH or are working towards it.
  • NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management or IEMA Certificate in Environmental Management.
  • Competence in CDM 2015 regulations and relevant legislation.
  • Extensive experience in evaluating, monitoring, and controlling subcontractor operations and managing an effective HS&E management system and ISO accreditations.
