Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - Ni Job Finder - BY STAFF RE­PORTER

THE search has be­gun for a new chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Health and Safety Ex­ec­u­tive for North­ern Ire­land (HSENI).

The post, which will be based at Ladas Drive in Belfast, com­mands a salary of be­tween £69,651 and £79,849.

The North­ern Ire­land Civil Ser­vice (NICS) is ad­ver­tis­ing the grade five pub­lic sec­tor po­si­tion, with a clos­ing date of Oc­to­ber 26 for ap­pli­ca­tions. Its present chief ex­ec­u­tive is Keith Mor­ri­son.

The NICS said: “The post of chief ex­ec­u­tive of HSENI is an ex­cit­ing lead­er­ship op­por­tu­nity to head up a highly-pro­fes­sional non-depart­men­tal pub­lic body which makes a real dif­fer­ence to the lives of the work­ing pop­u­la­tion, their fam­i­lies and de­pen­dents.”

It de­scribes the HSENI as “the lead body re­spon­si­ble for the pro- mo­tion and en­force­ment of health and safety at work stan­dards in North­ern Ire­land”.

The NICS added: “It aims to in­form, stim­u­late, guide and where nec­es­sary com­pel those with statu­tory du­ties and oth­ers con­cerned with health and safety at work, in ac­tions lead­ing to higher stan­dards.”

En­trants may be ap­pointed to other NICS roles with sim­i­lar du­ties and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. The NICS is also aim­ing to fill a range of other jobs at lower lev­els. A so­cial me­dia edi­tor is sought for the Depart­ment of Jus­tice, on a salary of up to £40,700 — though the salary is un­der re­view.

It also wants to fill an ar­chi­tec­tural post at the North­ern Ire­land Prison Ser­vice, adding that ap­pli­ca­tions from women would be wel­come as they are oth­er­wise un­der-rep­re­sented in the field.

Women are also be­ing en­cour­aged to ap­ply for other roles within the Depart­ment of Jus­tice. There are posts to be filled in res­i­den­tial night sup­port jobs at Woodlands Ju­ve­nile Jus­tice Cen­tre in Ban­gor.

There is a fur­ther Civil Ser­vice va­cancy which women are be­ing en­cour­aged to ap­ply for, this time at the Depart­ment for Com­mu­ni­ties.

The role of health as­sess­ment ad­viser has a salary of up to £52,857, though the salary is un­der re­view.

Mean­while, Ul­ster Univer­sity also has a num­ber of va­can­cies. In Belfast, its depart­ment of hos­pi­tal­ity and tourism man­age­ment is on the look­out for a lec­turer in food and bev­er­age man­age­ment, which has a salary band of £35,000 to £50,000.

Within the busi­ness school, the agri-food busi­ness de­vel­op­ment cen­tre has said it wants to fur­ther its am­bi­tion to be­come the lead­ing cen­tre for agri-food en­tre­pre­neur­ial ed­u­ca­tion, re­search and im­pact in the UK.

It’s seek­ing a pro­fes­sor/reader in health eco­nomics, as well as a pro­fes­sor/reader in food busi­ness de­vel­op­ment, a reader in agri-food in­no­va­tion and en­tre­pre­neur­ial lead­er­ship and a reader in busi­ness an­a­lyt­ics.

Ac­cord­ing to the univer­sity, the agri-food busi­ness de­vel­op­ment cen­tre “de­vel­ops re­search and busi­ness com­pe­ten­cies that help stake­hold­ers im­prove in­no­va­tion and com­pet­i­tive­ness along the agri-food supply chain”.
