Chief Executive, Health and Safety Executive

The role

Chief Executive


We are now seeking a new Chief Executive to help lead change in the organisation and take advantage of a range of national and international commercial opportunities.

The recent Triennial Review has confirmed our strategic direction of travel and affirmed the high regard for HSE among our many stakeholders. It also identified significant opportunities for HSE to capitalise on our wealth of knowledge by exploring options for providing some services nationally and internationally on a commercial basis.

This is a genuinely world class opportunity for a leader to help drive improvement in a high profile organisation at a time of significant change.

Key duties include:

  • Providing the strategic vision and leadership to the HSE to enable it to deliver its objectives in a changing business and regulatory environment.
  • Ensure that the HSE operates within, and holds others to account for, the legislative framework and regulations affecting health and safety in the UK.
  • Ensure HSE is an integrated and high performing organisation able to meet its performance targets, strategic goals and overall objectives

For this critical post, we require a proven leader with a demonstrable track record of delivering cultural change within complex organisations. It is expected that the candidate will also demonstrate an understanding of the role of regulation and management of risk within the modern work place. The candidate will also have the drive and ambition to identify, and realise, commercial opportunities.
