Standaard New opportunity! HSE&S Director role at AkzoNobel in Amsterdam

About the company
AkzoNobel is a leading global paints and coatings company and a major producer of specialty chemicals, with leading market positions and brands in countries around the world. We operate in a number of important market segments ranging from buildings and infrastructure to transport, industrial and consumer goods. We’re also the sector leader in sustainability and are number one in the renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Index. In practical terms, that means our sustainable solutions are in your lives, and those of your friends and family, every day. We’re the people that make it possible for you to do what you need to do.

A wide-ranging leadership role for an experienced, visionary and highly effective HSE&S Director

Health, Safety, Environment & Security (HSE&S) is integral to all AkzoNobel’s objectives and our strategy is to deliver leading performance across all our activities in terms of HSE&S standards, performance and capability.

Within this context, your mission in this role is to lead HSE&S activities across our world leading Performance Coatings (PC) Business Area (BA). In particular you identify critical gaps in HSE&S
capability and resources, develop and support the implementation of long term plans to close those gaps. Where necessary you leverage HSE&S capability and resources from outside the BA, which demands strong networking skills to ensure cooperation across organizational boundaries.

A further core task is to assist the BA leader and the BA Operations Director in allocating HSE&S improvement tasks to the appropriate members of the BA Management Team, coaching them in their (HSE&S) roles. This requires strong influencing skills as you create ownership across supply chain, manufacturing, site directors, HR directors, administration, finance, marketing, sales, RD&I, and other functions.

Is this a challenge that matches your talents and ambitions as an entrepreneurial and results oriented problem solver and negotiator with real project management skills? Can you drive the continuous improvement of HSE&S processes, policies, and standards? Do you have the interpersonal skills to work inclusively with the HSE&S community so that the business experiences ‘one voice’ that will meet collective objectives? Above all, can you make a real difference within our dynamic, multinational and multicultural business environment?

If you offer all this and more, we invite you to apply for the position of

Continuous Improvement
You act as a change agent for continuous improvement across the BA’s HSE&S standards, performance, capability and culture. This requires you to spend time on the shop floor as you assess and report performance and compliance. You also lead analysis of BA-specific needs and gaps including lagging units, and you proactively case manage injuries and incidents.

You leverage expertise to extend HSE&S knowledge throughout your own unit and others, participating in AkzoNobel expert pools for the delivery of the Safety Common Platform and HSE&S Faculty learning programs. You also audit and/or perform incident investigation, and conduct training activities.

As a high level HSE&S thinker, you contribute to the strategy for the design, deployment and delivery of the AkzoNobel HSE&S Policy, Directives, Rules & Procedures and Safety Common Platform, agreeing and aligning objectives.
