Senior Operational Policy Advisor

We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Operational Policy officer to join our pesticides team.

You will be part of a team that is delivering HSE objectives. The UK having left the EU offers an exciting opportunity to develop and shape our regulatory schemes for the future.

You will be responsible for operational policy input to applications from external stakeholders, translating policy and legislative requirements into operational processes that support regulatory decisions on pesticides (including maximum residue levels) in the UK.

You will lead discrete projects that support operational delivery (such as reviewing technical guidance) or the National Action Plan for pesticides, identifying and securing resources, planning, monitoring and overseeing delivery and reporting on progress and costs.

You will analyse key information in relation to complex and challenging situations e.g. to ensure that decisions in relation to the approval and authorisation of pesticides and the setting of maximum residue levels are consistent and legally sound.

You will have an important role in solving problems, helping operational colleagues and external stakeholders navigate the regulatory and policy landscape by providing analysis and recommendations, including to senior leaders both within HSE and externally.
