IRC133705 - Operational Risk Business Partner

Salary: £42,588 per annum

Contract type: Permanent f/t (37.5 hrs pw)

Closing date: 19 March 2023

Address: Saintfield, Ballynahinch, BT24 7LH


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 everyone, for ever.  

You'll hold a full UK driving license and be willing to travel within Northern Ireland. 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 hybrid 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 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. 

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 Northern Ireland. 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 and be closely supported by the National Specialists within Operational Risk. 

Who we're looking for

You can view the full role profile for this role in the document attached. You don't need to have all the knowledge, skills and experience listed in the role profile; this is just to provide a full picture of what is possible in this role. For this role we are looking for someone who has:

  • Relevant qualification in Health and Safety (e.g. member of IOSH or CIEH) with strong technical expertise in Health and Safety and Risk Management
  • Comprehensive knowledge of the relevant legislative frameworks

However, more importantly, it’s not just what you know, but how you share it. Practical and pragmatic, you'll be able to demonstrate great influencing skills as well as the ability to build strong relationships – both internally and externally.

The package

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.
