IRC126319 - Operational Risk Business Partner
Salary: £42,588 per annum
Contract type: Permanent f/t (37.5 hrs pw)
Closing date: 25 September 2022
Address: Covering London and the South East
In an organisation as complex, varied and exciting as the National Trust, managing our risk is a significant part of the business. Imagine visiting and working at some of our amazing places, using your skills and experience to ensure they are looked after for ever, for everyone.
The candidate will hold a full UK driving license and be willing to travel within the London and South East Regions. This may occasionally involve overnight stays as and when required.
Your contractual location will be one of our regional hubs or properties, however there will be an opportunity to explore and agree remote working arrangements which strike the right balance for you and the Trust.
What it's like to work here
We’re bigger than you think, we’re more complicated than we appear and we’re larger scale than you’d imagine. We’ve got passionate people in all our teams, and we’ve got so much more we want to achieve.
We’re for ever, for everyone and we really mean that. We want everyone to feel welcome and enjoy access to our places, so we need to reach new audiences in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them without losing the hearts and minds of those that are already with us.
What you'll be doing
At the Trust, no two days are alike. You will act as the ‘one stop shop’ in providing general advice to a portfolio of properties in the London/South East region. Your day could be anything from dealing with regulators, helping develop internal policy or advising on complex property related projects across a varied geographical area, with everything from Mansion Houses, villages, farms, castles, monuments and acres of woods, coast and open countryside. You will need to be adept at flexing your style and taking a pragmatic and imaginative approach to achieve compliance.
You will report to the Senior Operational Risk Business Partner in the South and be closely supported by the national specialists within Operational Risk.
Who we're looking for
You will have a relevant qualification in Health and Safety (e.g. member of IOSH or CIEH) with strong technical expertise in Health and Safety and Risk Management. You will have comprehensive knowledge of the relevant legislative frameworks. Experience of providing advice in a complex environment would be beneficial, as would experience of working in a similar organisation. However, more importantly, it’s not just what you know, but how you share it. Practical and pragmatic, you should be able to demonstrate great influencing skills as well as the ability to build strong relationships – both internally and externally.
The National Trust has the motto ‘For everyone, for ever’ at its heart. We’re working hard to create an inclusive culture, where everyone feels they belong. It’s important that our people reflect and represent the diversity of the communities and audiences we serve. We welcome and value difference, so when we say we’re for everyone, we want everyone to be welcome in our teams too.
