You will initially be home based and will need to visit us and work from our head office in Newcastle upon Tyne. There may be the necessity to work away from this location and you are required to be flexible to work within other office/service locations in the future within an agreed area of your initial office location.

As part of your role you will be expected to travel and work from any of Home Group?s locations as required. You?ll be working as part of our Health and Safety Team who provide support across Home Group nationally and all things to do with health, safety, fire and insurance. You?ll be working to Brian, our Head of Health and Safety, where you?ll provide the lead on risk and insurance support, guidance and advice across Home Group. You?ll influence the effective management of risk and provision of insurances to achieve best practice outcomes. You?ll also be responsible for a small team of 2 who handle claims.

Key to the success of this role is working with the rest of the Health & Safety Team including, Sara our Health and Safety Manager, our Safety Business Partners and Assurance Business Partners to provide advice and support across our business for a wide range of topics.

All in all, we are looking for a brilliant person with real energy and passion to deliver a quality service.

A bit about you

As a Risk and Insurance Lead you will be responsible for leading on insurance and risk management, with the ability to lead and influence others. To deliver successfully, you will have detailed knowledge of creating insurance solutions aligned to business needs. You?ll also have knowledge and experience of leading on the development and maintenance of incident management frameworks and processes, including the testing of these. Being able to produce comprehensive meaningful reporting on insurance and incident management will also be within your talents.

Working flexibly

It?s the team?s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child?s school play, your partner?s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!

What?s on offer?

You?ll be equipped to work in our high tech organisation in an agile fashion with the latest IT kit which includes you being issued with a surface pro tablet and smart phone. We also offer a casual dress code.
