With a strong presence in London, the Middle East and Internationally, they provide a range of services which include residential sales and lettings, commercial leasing and investment, property and facilities management and consultancy. Following previous successful recruitment campaigns, Cluttons approached Maxwell Stephens to support in the recruitment of a Health and Safety, Sustainability and Environmental Manager.

The post holder was required to undertake the full range of duties appropriate to the provision of health, safety and sustainability in the workplace and for properties that are managed on behalf of clients, in accordance with applicable statutory obligations, emerging legislation and ‘good-practice’ guidelines.

The successful candidate would be the firm’s ‘Subject Matter Expert’ for energy/sustainability related issues and responsible for the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Phase Two submission for the firm. In addition, the post holder would advise external clients, mentor the HSSE Coordinators, undertake workstation assessments and work with the contracted-out Facilities Management provider to ensure statutory compliance with Cluttons’ offices.

In terms of essential experience, the ideal candidate was required to have a demonstrable track record of working within a UK based property consultancy, property management or facilities management organisation. In addition, they also needed to have an in-depth understanding of health and safety legislation, with a track record of premises inspections and practical implementation of legislation.

The successful candidate as a minimum would be a graduate member of IOSH (GradIOSH), and would need to hold relevant environmental qualifications/credentials. In addition the post holder was required to have or be working towards IMEA Membership. Ideally they would be a member of the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) and be working towards NEBOSH Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety. Due to the requirements of the position, evidence of successfully gaining and managing ISO accreditation (inclusive of 14001) or equivalent was a necessity.

Results

Cluttons used a multi-agency approach on this recruitment project, choosing Maxwell Stephens as one of the recruitment specialists working on their behalf. Of the numerous candidates screened for the position, we produced and submitted a shortlist of three candidates. Of the three submitted, two were invited to interview, resulting in one of our submitted candidates being appointed to the position.
