Simpson Group is one of the UK’s leading printers of retail point of purchase displays. Our vision is to make our business of printing enjoyable, inspiring and rewarding for all. Our industry is fast moving, hectic and requires stamina and perseverance.

Our staff are enthusiastic and go that extra mile to ensure that we satisfy our customers’ needs.

 

Well designed and enforced regulation can have a positive impact on a business, employees and the general public, supporting sustainable growth, trade and investment, including improved social and environmental outcomes. The regulatory climate of a business can contribute to the creation of a positive and supportive business environment as well as assuring stakeholder protection.

 

We are looking to strengthen and support the compliance side of our business by creating an apprenticeship position in a positive, learning environment. The candidate will enjoy working within exact and detailed legislative frameworks and will be confident in dealing with external legislative bodies, such as HSE (Health & Safety Executive), NWL (Northumbria Water Ltd), EA (Environmental Agency), BSi (British Standards Institute) and FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification), both the latter being via SGS.

The apprenticeship will aim to follow ST0430/01 – Regulatory Compliance Officer, with the candidate adopting a junior role during the duration of the course and the opportunity to occupy the lead compliance role after successful completion of the apprenticeship.

You will be based here at Influence Park, with quarterly visits to our Langley office in Slough.

Whilst training will be given, English and Maths are a prerequisite, along with the ability to communicate to all levels. Report writing, Power Point presentations and use of Microsoft Word and Excel will be part of your daily tasks. Due to the complexity of legislative requirements you will need good personal time management and organisational skills, working consistently in Quadrant II – ie/ important but not urgent. Open to change, leading by example and being supportive, whilst firm and fair. You will be involved in various tasks such as: collecting and analysing business data, preparing and conducting audits, including the write up, recommendations and presentation to senior management, as well as risk assessments, safe systems of work, guidance notes and updating and reviewing the Register of Legislation. etc.

 

The position reports to the Development Director but will be managed day to day by the Production / Compliance Administrator, with a full training programme agreed prior to appointment, which will have been set up within the agreed standard framework.

 

If you are interested in applying, please send your CV and covering letter to Sarah Tishler, Development Director at s.tishler@simpsongroup.co.uk by close of play on Friday 15th June 2018.
