Job Description

Exeter College (part of the University of Oxford) is seeking to appoint a Health, Safety & Maintenance Administrator. This is an exciting opportunity to take on a busy and varied role, which will both oversee day-to-day health & safety activities and also support the Buildings Manager as a key interface between the Maintenance team and its customers within the College.

Within the role, the key duties will be to coordinate and/ or manage a range of health & safety activities, including: risk assessments; staff induction sessions; equipment testing programmes; statutory testing programmes; helping to develop and implement the College’s health & safety relates policies/ procedures; and ensuring that accurate records are maintained. In addition, the postholder will support the Buildings Manager in the administration of the Maintenance department, and in managing the operation of an online maintenance reporting system.

This post would suit a proactive and solution-oriented individual, who has a strong customer-focus and who is highly organised and accurate in their work. You will also have excellent interpersonal skills, with the ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of people at all levels of the organisation. Strong IT skills are a must, as is a good applied knowledge through relevant NEBOSH or IOSH qualifications; some practical experience in a health & safety environment would be an advantage, but is not essential.
