Will you actively create a healthier future for tomorrow?


At Medibank we’re encouraged to think big. We have a clear purpose to impact better health outcomes for our customers, patients and our community.


We celebrate diversity of thought because we want to make better decisions for our customers. As we work towards our goal of better health for better lives, we value the knowledge and contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. We are working hard to create an inclusive workplace and develop Indigenous careers.


The Opportunity


The purpose of the HSW Business Partner is to work closely with operations to guide process and practice to prevent workplace injury and illness, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of employees, contractors and visitors.


Your Impact


Your job is to provide workplace health & safety advice, guidance and leadership to the business including systems implementation, legal & regulatory compliance and HSW project development and deployment. You will drive the HSW strategy and objectives with Business Unit stakeholders, prepare and present regular reports, manage incidents & hazards and assist in addressing any new or emerging issues or trends.


In your role, you will have responsibility for HSW objectives across defined business area(s) and risk elements across the Medibank group of companies (Medibank), and will also work collaboratively with other members of the HSW team on shared projects and objectives. This position is essential to ensure workplace health and safety risks, including the risk of psychological injury and illness are managed in line with legislation, self-insurance license requirements and industry best practice.


Who are we looking for?


You bring extensive experience in a similar role with a sound knowledge of current WHS Acts, legislation and regulations, and have relevant experience in its implementation.

Highly organised in your approach to work, you have a keen eye for detail and enjoy working autonomously. You are an excellent communicator and have the ability to engage and influence across all levels of an organisation.

Your approach is human centred, and you enjoy thinking outside the box to reach an outcome.
