Product Safety Enforcement Manager

Office for Product Safety & Standards (OPSS)

Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

£46,800 - £55,116 (Grade 7)

Location: Birmingham

Deadline: 24th February 2019

We keep people safe across the nation

When it comes to protecting people and the environment, no one is more passionately committed than the Office for Product Safety & Standards (OPSS). From eco-design and energy labelling to new regulatory challenges around conflict minerals, our work is constantly evolving. We’re investing and growing across the board to raise compliance standards that affect the lives of 65 million people.  And that means investing in your skills and development too.

Find and eliminate danger

As a Product Safety Enforcement Manager, you’ll search out and solve product safety issues to keep the UK population safe. That means working closely with the Head of Product Safety Enforcement to develop and implement policy and strategies. As an investigative expert, you’ll supervise and support the work of others: ensuring projects are managed effectively, that evidence meets compliance standards, and that stakeholders are updated on progress.

Expertise worth sharing

You’ll bring significant experience of operating in an investigative environment, including knowledge of product safety legislation and regulations. You’ll also be able to share this expertise by coaching, training and mentoring other safety enforcement professionals.  Used to interviewing people in an investigative context and producing witness statements or reports, you’ll ideally have experience of giving evidence in court.  The ability to nurture positive working relationships in many different contexts is vital.

Benefits that meet high standards

As a Civil Service employee, you’ll be entitled to a large range of benefits, including:

  • Regular performance and development reviews
  • 25 days of annual leave on entry, increasing to 30 days after 5 years
  • One further day paid privilege entitlement to mark the Queen’s Birthday
  • Flexible working patterns including part- time or time-term working
  • Generous paid maternity and paternity leave
  • Interest-free season ticket and bicycle loans
  • Competitive contributory pension scheme
