Safety and Wellbeing Business Partner

Do you have a passion for making a difference and have experience or hold qualifications in Safety and Wellbeing?

Join the People and Culture team at Wintec

We enjoy a good laugh, a lot of character, and promote being our authentic selves at work. That said we work exceptionally hard between the chuckles - but continuously gain positivity and energy from each other to get through even the most gruelling of days. This is your opportunity to join a team that will bring out the best in you, in an organisation that aspires to lead the change in tertiary education and model modern working practices.

About the role

In this role you will support the Safety and Wellbeing Manager and partner with managers and staff across all areas of Wintec. You will use your influence and coaching abilities to achieve the organisational goals through managers and staff to affect safety and wellbeing change. You will work alongside a high performing collaborative team, who works closely together providing supportive guidance and experience to continuously grow each other.

You will hit the ground running as you must be able to churn through the day to day operational needs and provide sound leadership advice on Safety and Wellbeing management. You will identify risks and manage investigations, promote safety and wellbeing practices across Wintec while coaching and mentoring others. It’s essential that you have experience in building strong relationships and have superior communication skills working with a diverse group of people. If safety and wellbeing is a passion for you and you have a generalist understanding of Health and Safety and its impact on an organisation both legislatively and practically. Your ability to influence leaders to create a proactive safety and wellbeing culture to get the best out of their teams, through coaching and development, to achieve our strategic goals will be your true measure of success.

You will be motivated in bringing out the best in people and have the tenacity to work through the challenges that come with taking people on this journey. Your ability to stay calm in a crisis is critical whilst using your highly developed communication skills to build and maintain strong relationships and commitment to safety and wellbeing, this could be your next exciting move.

Working at Wintec

It is quite likely you will download a mindfulness app or start listening to development podcasts on your drive to work - by choice! Yes we appreciate that sounds a wee bit crazy, but trust us on this; these are all symptoms of a high trust, dynamic, and high growth team environment. Old-fashioned 'compliance' thinkers need not apply. Wintec continues to be one of the leading tertiary institutes by fostering an innovative and forward thinking organisation. Our team works to stay abreast of the fast-changing world of technology and industry practice. For an energetic self-starter looking for a fast-paced working environment, Wintec is the place to be.
