About Us

At BrewDog, the mission is simple: To make other people as passionate about great craft beer as we are!

Within the Quality department, our mission is to be the very best Quality department in world brewing. We help make beer that synonymous with quality through providing objective scientific analysis, safe and structured ways of working to accredited standards and innovative continual improvement, to deliver the best beer experience to our incredible customers.

About The Role

The role has responsibility for delivering an engaging program protecting beer and people. You will drive the ISO accredited HSE program across the business, with key stakeholders across manufacturing, retail and supply chain. You will develop the HSE strategy based on our needs, risks and opportunities, reporting and tracking KPI’s, continually protecting impeccable operational standards while driving continual improvement. You will lead by example and collaboration. This is a challenging yet exciting role and you will not only need to know your stuff when it comes to external statutory requirements, but be able to effectively inspire and energise the wider team in HSE related training, auditing and owning safety at the source.

Top three things this role needs to deliver:

  • Lead the BrewDog certification program for health and safety (ISO 45001) and support food safety management system (FSSC 22000) through system maintenance, improvement and internal auditing.
  • Ensure the operational teams are protected (through provision of equipment and facilities to execute safely), that a HSE framework is in place (through front line training and competency assessment) and that new employees are successfully on-boarded (through an engaging induction programme).
  • Be the point of contact for all statutory issues relating to HSE.

About The Team

The BrewDog Quality team exists on the periphery of Operations, supporting multiple teams across Production, Supply Chain, Retail and the customer base. We recognise that a team of 25 cannot be everywhere at once, so it’s important that other teams own Safety and Quality at the source; acting as Quality team members before their other duties.
It is our responsibility to support and tool the wider teams accordingly, and inspire confidence, trust and respect.
We are collaborative, yet tough; flexible, yet integrity driven and 100% focused on getting the very best beer to our customers.

The HSE team currently comprises three amazing humans. Two HSE coordinators at our Ellon Brewery and one Warehouse HSE coordinator in Glasgow. The role will report into the Global Head of Quality.

About You

Professionally, you will ideally be NEBOSH Diploma qualified Grad IOSH (will consider NEBOSH Gen for exceptional candidates). Former experience in HSE managerial role and ideally FMCG experienced.

As a person, you need to be an incredible communicator (detailed or concise, wherever needed), able to manage and priorities a busy workload (be bursting with energy and always seeking to improve), deliver effectively to all levels within the organisation with a positive and approachable attitude (know the audience and inspire their support through working with them). But more than anything, be a guardian of the BrewDog culture.

A love for beer is quite frankly a must!
