Environmental Officer
There is no project plan but they will need to pick things up quite quickly, they have been without the role for 2 months. The other agencies haven't done anything with it - they placed the candidate there a year ago. They would need to get things up and running.
The role has been maintained by the group technical and environmental manager. Not as detailed and continuous as it neds to be.
One line is the site manager and one to the group environmental manager. They would have overall control of the day to day running - work closely with the existing team. Penrith have construction projects and involved in that from not being in breach of permits - nothing to necessarily get involved in. They will hand that.
Qualification: They have taken someone at Halifax - no specific qualification. They don't want someone who is an environmental, tree hugger, lover.
Animal by-products and recycling - sticking to the laws that they are bound by. Need someone who understands the law. Someone who understands analytically - at the moment they will have to break it down and what it means. Weather graphs, key people that they have to speak with - methodological. Taking readings from the water samples, they will be checking things like trailers, odours, making sure it is within the realms of that.
The lady that they offered to at Halifax - she has been working in the chemistry side in a water plant. They will be walking around and looking for stuff. They need thorough detailed reports and working with the environmental agencies. Awareness of the ISMs to understand that side of that. Not looked at any specific qualifications - ability to investigate - good with ISO. Looking for more of those types of behaviours. The technical side.
They would need to be a strong character, would be respected in being an expert in that field. If there is a spillage the team would listen to them. You need that strong resilience to amend procedures and practices - getting the emphasis on the urgency to do your job. They need to be able to communicate across the department - needs to happen quickly. There is the need for that strong character and explain why they need that.
27,000 is the absolute top end.
Hours: 8 - 4:30 (40 hour week) need for flexibility to get stuff done.
HSE officers - the ability to write reports - that is essential. You get that with H&S people. That is absolutely fine - the role is so varied. They are asking them to keep compliance.
There would be room for future progression.
As soon as I send them through, she will have almost instant feedback.
