We are Merlin Entertainments… The name behind world famous attractions including LEGOLAND, SEA LIFE, Alton Towers Resort , Thorpe Park and the London Eye.

Our passion is putting smiles on people's faces across all of our global attractions. Central to this is our absolute commitment to achieving the highest standards in Health, Safety and Security (HSS). We are dedicated to protecting everyone who visits our attractions and also the people who work for us around the world.

Health, Safety and Security is therefore our number one priority and, of course, this is particularly the case when we design and deliver new multi-million pound projects into the business – whether these are new rides, new hotels or brand new “Midway” attractions around the world.

A great opportunity has arisen for a Regional Health, Safety & Security Manager (Midway Asia) to join our passionate and committed team. Location for this role is flexible within Asia, but a large element of travel to our Midway attractions in the region will be required.

Reporting directly into the Health, Safety & Security Director (Midway), you will be responsible for formulating and driving HSS strategies for the Midway Asia operating group and setting the agenda/framework for continuous improvement.

Key objectives include:
• Formulating, developing and monitoring the implementation of HSS policies, systems, procedures and standards for existing activities and new attractions within Midway Asia in order to ensure effective safety management.
• Ensuring that effective HSS planning for the Midway Asia business is undertaken and includes realistic short and long term objectives based on a cost benefit analysis approach to determine priorities and establish performance standards.
• Ensuring arrangements are in place that effectively recognise, evaluate and control risks to Health, Safety, Security and reputation.
• Developing and deploying new and progressive HSS initiatives that seek to raise the bar in Protecting the Magic across Midway Attractions and New Openings (Midway).
• Assisting with forward looking capital planning and asset replacement programmes to ensure existing attraction infrastructure and facilities assets remain safe and fit for purpose.
• Developing and upholding effective and robust safety management regimes for facilities assets/maintenance and associated contractor activities.

We are looking for the following skills and experience…
• A proven track record of leading an innovative and highly skilled HSS team within Asia, ideally within a high risk industry.
• Experience and knowledge of best-in-class HSS practices and systems.
• Excellent influencing and relationship management skills.
• Strong ability to measure performance by developing, coaching and supporting a HSS team.
• Highly developed interpersonal communications skills and cultural sensitivity.
• Strong project and change management skills – able to implement changes which add value and benefit to Midway.
• Business and commercial awareness – able to suggest and recommend alternative ways of operating which enhances Midway or New Openings (Midway).
• Creative, keen to trial new concepts to put/keep Midway or New Openings (Midway) at the forefront of HSS.
• Process and detail orientated with the ability to demonstrate problem solving.
• Flexible to work outside standard office hours when required and undertake frequent travel, sometimes at short notice.

The Benefits…
Great people, great perks! Alongside a fun and collaborative environment, with a competitive salary, you can enjoy our amazing benefits package, including a discretionary company bonus and of course a Merlin Magic Pass, which entitles you and your family and friends free admission to all our attractions worldwide.
