Technical Safety and Risk Manager
What does your role cover?
I manage more than 15 experienced safety and risk consultants based in our offices across Scotland. I am at the forefront of TSR’s business development and marketing efforts and liaise with clients regularly to help identify opportunities where the Xodus TSR team can provide the safety and risk support required on multi-discipline projects. Xodus TSR also provides operations and risk management support to allow clients to operate their assets in a safe, efficient and reliable manner. I strive to provide my team with opportunities to build on their existing skills through their delegation on new and interesting scopes of work to ensure the team has a wide array of competencies and capabilities to support the needs of our clients and be able to adapt to an ever changing stream of work.
Best Xodus moment?
Being promoted to the Technical Safety and Risk Manager position and seeing my efforts lead to sharp increases in productivity, utilisation and profitability for TSR.
Achieving an MBA in Energy Management from the University of Aberdeen in 2016. I undertook the course part-time over a period of under two years whilst working full-time in a tumultuous oil and gas industry and being a dad to two children under the age of five!
Xodus has given me significant opportunities from the minute I joined the company in 2011. I have developed skills and capabilities (both technical and soft skills) that I would not have had the opportunity to develop in the companies I had worked for previously. There is a great deal of emphasis on the importance of a good work-life balance and it is a genuinely fun and rewarding place to work.
