Your strengths in project management, analytics, report writing, presentation delivery and research will be evident as you lead the planning, design and execution of internal or external projects related to Occupational Health & Safety, emergency and business continuity planning, and environmental compliance, and conduct research in these areas. In so doing, you’ll take into consideration recent advances in the field, corporate policies and practices, legislation and initiatives by other divisions and levels of government.

Among the other strengths you bring to the role of Manager, Environmental and H&S Compliance will be the following key qualifications:

Considerable experience applying fundamental knowledge of leading-edge internal audit and risk management theories and methodologies, supported by considerable experience managing in an internal audit environmental, with service delivery and project management accountabilities, as well as dealing with due diligence principles, and health and safety standards and/or quality management systems, such as ISO 9000 Quality Management Systems, ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems, OHSAS 18000 Health & Safety and HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points), in government or related agencies.
  3. Considerable experience in the preparation of budgets and control of expenditures.

You’re an excellent strategic thinker with strong planning and process flow skills, a working knowledge of all relevant legislation, and municipal programs and services, and considerable experience in stakeholder communications and relationship management related to Environmental and H&S Compliance, enabling you to interpret and influence current and future compliance requirements that impact the Division.

A persuasive, savvy communicator and capable negotiator, with highly developed conflict resolution and public relations skills, you know how to interact with all levels of the organization, forge solid internal and external relationships, and function effectively in a service-oriented, politically sensitive environment, while balancing the needs of the organization with those of customers against valuable resources.
