With both IOSH and the health and safety industry experiencing an exciting period of evolution, the organisation's centrality in the field means this opportunity is uniquely poised to shape and enhance the future of the profession across the globe.

You'll be responsible for:

  • Managing the development of IOSH's global service model framework, enabling a structured and standardised approach to the delivery of all IOSH services
  • Leading on all occupational safety and health subject matters for IOSH and representing IOSH on external OSH issues
  • Growing the IOSH brand globally whilst meeting local needs, focusing on strategic priorities to ensure measurable impact is made
  • Engaging with various external stakeholders such as governments, NGOs and other professional entities
  • Championing the profession nationally and globally alongside senior colleagues, ensuring IOSH is seen as a leading voice
  • Liaising with members, member groups and wider stakeholders to gather and manage the collective knowledge of the profession
As a driven, commercially astute and emotionally intelligent individual, you'll join a progressive, highly-engaged and forward-thinking leadership team committed to maximising the positive impact IOSH can make to the profession.

To succeed, you'll need:

  • Technical working knowledge of occupational safety and health (OSH), and an awareness of wider issues of sustainability, environment and wellbeing
  • Significant experience in a global organisation, with an understanding of cultural differences and working practices around the world
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, with the ability to persuade, influence and challenge, with tact and diplomacy
  • A demonstrable track record of success at a senior level, leading a service directorate and setting strategic goals, and engaging with external stakeholders
There's never been a better time to join IOSH. While IOSH's new corporate strategy, Work 2022, promotes collaboration and positive change, their concurrent internal transformation programme is creating a modern, agile and flexible organisation fit for the challenges facing the industry today. You'll play a vital role in defining how this translates to a global scale.
