How you can make your mark

Are you looking for a wide-ranging job in SHE-Q and are you ready to take the second or third step in your career and move into a management role? Do you have a proven track record in the successful implementation of Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHE-Q)?
Then you are the person we are looking for to take on the job of SHE-Q Manager for one of our Business Units in the Division Dredging and Inland Infra.

The SHE-Q department facilitates and monitors the health and safety of the people who work for and with us, as well as being responsible for protecting the environment and project quality. Our philosophy on these topics is enshrined in our Safety Program ‘NINA’ (No Injuries, No Accidents), for more information, and our Quality Program ‘WoW’ (Way of Working). The leading management system used in performing the work is WoW ‘Way of Working’. 

You will be the ambassador and facilitator for NINA and WoW, acting as a sparring partner to the business and providing both solicited and unsolicited advice in the areas of safety, health, environment and quality.

Changes in behavior tend not to happen overnight. As a SHE-Q Manager you will need a great deal of creativity, empathy and perseverance to get everyone on board and keep them there. And it is not just on the projects that improvements need to be implemented; there are also challenges at divisional level with regard to optimization, integration and embedding of policy and processes.
