Remuneration/Benefit: Attractive Salary + Bonus on Offer

We’re looking to do things a little bit differently here at Aurizon, and as such, this newly created role will see you leading the Safety Risk & Assurance team for the largest rail freight operator in Australia.

As the Manager of Safety Risk & Assurance, you will own and drive the enterprise-wide safety risk and assurance framework to support the business in identifying and assessing safety risk, using both qualitative and quantitative risk methods. You’ll ensure the team works in collaboration with key stakeholders to uplift capability and process maturity in critical safety risk and control management across the business to improve the Company’s safety performance and to protect our people, our business and our communities.

You’ll collaborate with your peers, team members and other key stakeholders to design, develop and implement the Company’s safety incident management and investigation framework across the business.

We want you to not only love what you do, but to come in, work with your team and generate new ideas and thinking, challenge the status quo and be challenged. We understand that there is a serious nature to the role, however, having that team engagement and fun at work should never go astray.
