The European Process Safety Center (EPSC) is looking for a new director of center, since the current director, Dr. Christian Jochum, has announced his departure in 2013.

The director of center is accountable to the EPSC management board and supported by a small staff team based in Rugby, UK and a part-time home-based technical director. The role anticipates a commitment of a nominal 50 days/year and allows for working from a home base with a significant element of travel within Europe. The director of center will report to the board at face-to-face and virtual meetings which are held every four months, and will contribute to the twice-yearly technical
steering committee meetings which involve all EPSC full members. A secondment by agreement from the applicant’s company may be considered.

Working together with the existing staff, the director of center shall provide strategic and visible leadership for EPSC and represent it at international conferences, vis-á-vis the EU Commission, other associations and at meetings with potential members. Candidates will possess the necessary process safety experience and credibility to lead and support the work of EPSC and have strong connections to the European process safety community. The ability to raise and maintain the profile of process safety
within an international context is considered essential for the role.

The EPSC is a member-funded non-profit network of operating companies, insurers, researchers and consultants, which shares, develops and promotes best practice in the field of process and major accident safety. This year EPSC celebrates its 20-year anniversary since its formation by the European Federation of Chemical Engineering. EPSC is administered by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), a not-for-profit professional engineering institution.

The position is due to be filled by 1 September 2013. The salary is subject to negotiation. The closing date for all applications is 21 December 2012. Interested parties, in the first instance, should send a career history with a covering letter which highlights how their capabilities meet the role requirements to:
Lee Allford
EPSC Operations Manager
