NEBOSH have embarked on an exciting journey, following our 40th birthday, we are now undergoing a dramatic transformation to create a new era. To achieve our ambitious plans, we are seeking an inspirational and innovative Corporate Services Director to join our dynamic executive team. We are looking to attract a high calibre leader who is a qualified accountant with strong commercial, transformation experience and outstanding business performance skills; with the drive and determination to deliver greater success worldwide.

NEBOSH is a £10m international business, the leading organisation for qualifications in health, safety, wellbeing, and environmental management. More than 400,000 people have gained a NEBOSH qualification since 1979, delivered through a network of Learning Partners running examinations in over 130 countries. Our qualifications are internationally recognised and highly regarded by governments, employers, regulators and learners worldwide.

Despite the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, this has created new and exciting opportunities for NEBOSH to transform our whole business. This year we appointed a new Chair, several Non-Executive Directors, and in September 2020, a highly experienced Chief Executive to focus on: growing and strengthening our international presence; building ever more proactive partnerships; ensuring our qualifications are relevant in an ever-changing world, and that we have the best people, resources, processes, and systems in place to be a high performing and effective commercial business.

Our Corporate Services Director will play a key executive role in our decision making, with accountability for driving the strategic direction, performance and organisational strategy of NEBOSH. Reporting to the Chief Executive and working closely with the Board, Audit and Risk Committee and Executive Team, the position is critical in building a success driven ethos, by providing strong, clear, and inspiring leadership across the organisation, all of which support our charitable objectives.

The position requires strategic and operational leadership for Finance, HR, Risk, Facilities Management, and IT Systems Integration. Lead on creating a dynamic and commercial operating culture, driving continuous improvement and high performance to achieve operational excellence across NEBOSH.

We seek a strong commercially focused business leader with the decisive ability to implement and drive strategic vision, and who can bring a highly successful track record of driving financial sustainability and growing income. You will be highly proactive with a proven record of inspiring and developing high performing teams and embedding the most effective and efficient internal systems and processes.

As a chartered qualified accountant, you will be able to demonstrate previous accountability for the success of leading Finance, HR, Risk, Facilities Management, IT, and Systems Integration. You will also have excellent communication and relationship building skills to form effective partnership with all those within NEBOSH, including our Board, key stakeholders, and our Learning Partners.

This is a fantastic opportunity to influence and contribute to the full potential of NEBOSH and most importantly enable NEBOSH to invest in our vision to preserve and improve health, safety, wellbeing, and the environment in workplaces worldwide.
