Health & Safety Manager 

Based, Bishops Stortford, Monday - Friday 

£Competitive basic + Benefits & Pension scheme


We are the original pud pioneers.

Since 2003, we've been filling homes with ramekins of restaurant-quality, wickedly indulgent desserts.

From Day One, our talented pâtisserie chefs have made every single pud in our very own kitchens, using only the most decadent ingredients, and now we have a range that includes Cheesecakes (some of which also come Free-from!), Hot Puds, Mousses and our new lower calorie Lights range, all of which come in our packaging which is fully recyclable, although we know most of you love to keep the ramekins and re-use them at home!

If you're ever wondering if a Salted Caramel Cheesecake is acceptable at 11 am; just know that somewhere, somebody is tucking into a Gü every single second ...

  • Manage the HSE & Training Coordinator, including setting and reviewing objectives, motivating for results, and developing skills & knowledge of Health, Safety and Environmental matters.
  • Mentor site personnel (particularly HSE & Training Coordinator, Senior Site Team and HSE Leads) to improve their knowledge of HSE matters and their skills in managing key aspects of our HSMS and EMS (including RCA, investigations, auditing).
