Since 2012, Jacob’s team in Qatar have been focused on delivering football stadiums and other supporting infrastructure for an amazing 2022 FIFA World Cup™, that leaves a lasting legacy for Qatar, the region and the world.

As we edge ever closer to the big event, the focus now moves to event operations and to those travelling in 2022, without any doubt, being part of the World Cup will be a unique experience for any fan. The Health, Safety and Security Operations associated with such an event is driven by the vision of a safe and welcoming tournament for everyone.

Reporting to Programme Leadership as the Operations Health & Safety Lead, for non-competition venues you will be working with a broad range of stakeholders to establish and implement programme wide safety standards and requirements in line with FIFA and Qatar’s governing bodies and Qatar health & safety regulations.

Your position will involve overseeing and coordinating the safety planning for non-competition venue operations, and the development of clear and comprehensive health & safety procedures and responsibility matrices. You will ensure that safety regulations are adhered to across all operations and requirements follow agreed milestones with relevant stakeholders, including coordination with event operations.

The success of this position will be based on the principles of coordination, communication, and cooperation, working closely with multiple internal stakeholders and with the local authorities to ensure that as we approach the tournament all the safety and security requirements and regulations are met.

Desired Skills and Experience

As a successful candidate you will already have firsthand experience in directly leading health & safety operations at the top level of a globally renowned sporting event, ideally including FIFA World Cups or UEFA European Championships, or other major sports tournaments such as the Olympic Games. Your interpersonal skills and awareness of social, legal and political sensitivities will have enabled you to deliver successfully on an international setting dealing with stakeholders at the highest level.
