Our business
Our Oil & Gas Operator client are recruiting for a HSE Audit Advisor to join their Aberdeen team.  The role will develop and manage HSE audit plans and ensure continuous improvement to the Assurance Framework.  Role will be onshore based, with frequent travel to offshore sites to carry out audits.

What can we offer you
Fantastic opportunity to work for a well renowned Oil & Gas Operator, leading the development and delivery of the assurance framework for North Sea operated assets, non-operated assets and key contracting organisations. 

Key Responsibilities and background:
As well as developing and managing the HSE audit plans, you will be aware of known and emerging risks to occupational health and safety and process safety across the business.  The role will have relevant experience in planning and executing audits and will work with the HSEA team and other functions from the Aberdeen office to continually assess and determine audit priorities. There will also be frequent visits to sites to execute audits from the plan as Audit Lead or to direct others including 3rd parties on requirements.   The role will also work to develop additional audit capability within the business though training, mentoring and quality checking audits with others from the wider organisation to create a pool of individuals capable of becoming Audit Leads in their own right.
  • Lead the development and delivery of the assurance framework for the North Sea that covers company operated assets (including well operations), non-operated assets and key contracting organisations.
  • Ensure a risk-based approach is taken when determining audit activity and targets, focussed on known and emerging risk and continually reflecting and adapting this on the North Sea Audit Plan accordingly.
  • Act as primary Audit Lead for the North Sea, executing audits at sites based on agreed priorities.
  • Manage the resources required for audits, leading and mentoring others to build a wider pool of Audit Leads for the business.
  • Provide input into 3rd party audits to ensure the scope is defined clearly, aligned to company risk-based prioritisation, and executed to the standard required.
  • Provide assurance that the business has effective arrangements in place to manage the safety & environmental management system (SEMS).
  • Work with Supply Chain on contract audit plans, including review of SEQUAL audit outcomes and question sets to determine if further direct audit is required.
  • Support the analysis of assurance data to enable learning opportunities and identification of trends across the assurance framework are shared across the business, including consideration of any emerging risks which require the audit plan to evolve.
  • Input to HSE event (incident and near miss) investigations, reporting information and statistics as required.

Critical Skills & Personal Attributes:
  • Strong audit background, with a clear understanding of risk and delivery of a business wide audit plan for HSEA.
  • Ability to build internal and external relationships to support delivery of the plan.
  • Excellent written and presentation skills, with ability to adapt style and content of presentation for both technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Previous operational experience in a similar role, preferably with operations experience, within the oil & gas industry or the Petrochemicals Industry.  
  • BOSIET and MIST (or equivalent) due to offshore travel requirements
