Project Lead, Health and Safety

Fixed-term for 18-24 months

Ballet and Opera capture the deepest human emotions: we want to share these unique art forms and their power to thrill, move and excite with as many people as possible. The operation of the Royal Opera House is complex and demanding given its scale, the repertory model and the multi-disciplinary nature of our production processes. As well as our Covent Garden home, we run a production workshop and costume centre in Thurrock and a large store in Aberdare, Wales.

Following an audit of our health and safety systems, we now wish to implement a strategic, cross-organisation management plan to ensure we have a comprehensive and consistent approach to delivering our work. We are therefore seeking an experienced individual or consultancy approach to lead the development and adoption of a H&S Management system over the next 18-24 months.

The full specification for the project is attached below.

Proposals should include:

  • A description of approach
  • If on a consultancy basis, details of personnel to be involved and their qualifications/previous experience in this work
  • A timetable for commencement and likely pattern of days.

The closing date for expressions of interest, which should be submitted by email to, is noon on Friday 22 November 2019. Please contact the Human Resources Department on 020 7212 9752 if you have any queries
