NEBOSH embarks on search for ‘transformational’ Chief Executive

NEBOSH has begun the recruitment process for a new ‘transformational and commercially astute’ Chief Executive.

Over the past 40 years nearly half a million people in over 130 countries have studied for a NEBOSH qualification. It is now searching for a transformational and commercially astute Chief Executive who can continue its legacy in providing recognised, rigorous and respected qualifications that help to save the lives of people in workplaces around the world.

The charity, which employs over 110 people from its base in Leicester, embarked on a new strategy in 2019. Coupled with the challenges and opportunities presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the new Chief Executive will drive a period of significant transformation that has already begun with the introduction of new technology for the delivery of its examinations.

Bill Nixon, NEBOSH Chair, says: “NEBOSH plays a key role in improving health, safety, wellbeing and the environment in workplaces worldwide. It is a cause very close to the hearts of our employees and our global network of learners, Learning Partners and employers so to join NEBOSH as our new leader will be to join a very passionate and worthwhile community.

“This global community expects the very best from NEBOSH so our Board of Trustees is searching for a very special Chief Executive; someone who has exceptional people skills and commercial acumen but also a drive to make the world a safer and healthier place for workers around the world. It’s a challenging prospect but we’re in the business of saving lives and that is incredibly rewarding indeed.”
