Brackenridge is a not-for-profit organisation that provides support to children, young people and adults with intellectual disabilities and/or autism in Canterbury.

We employ over 370 staff in a variety of roles that provide support services for people across a wide age range.

As a growing organisation we are looking for an experienced Health and Safety professional to join the team.

Based in greater Christchurch and working across multiple homes, this is an exciting opportunity to take our existing health, safety, and wellness strategies to the next level.

We are looking for someone with demonstrated health and safety advisory experience and the ability to understand and work with our staff in a way which promotes a positive safety culture and increases their safety knowledge and practice. The successful person will need to be flexible, have well developed communication skills, resilient, be open to thinking innovatively and have a strong customer focus.
