Ed Innocent joins our H&S team

Ed Innocent joined Stroma in 2017 as Group Fleet and Facilities Manager. With previous health & safety experience, Ed has taken on an extended role as Group H&S Manager to support our health and safety team.

We asked Ed a few questions about his new role within the health and safety team and his career development at Stroma.

Tell us a bit about your career development at Stroma.

"I joined Stroma in 2017 to manage the fleet of vehicles and oversee facilities management for Stroma's office premises across the country. I had health & safety responsibility and undertook the NEBOSH General Certificate qualification in a previous role with a different employer.

I began working with Stroma's Group Head of Quality and Health & Safety in 2019 to develop Stroma's health & safety policies and procedures for all group activities. A restructure of the team gave me an opportunity to become Group Health & Safety Manager while keeping responsibility for all fleet and facilities processes, a challenge which I am looking forward to."

How will your development help in your new role?

"The development will help me to have a view of all aspects of Stroma's offering to clients and means that I can ensure all activities, whether they be within our offices or on client sites, be carried out in a safe, sustainable and compliant manner."

What are your future ambitions at Stroma?

"I would eventually like to join the Executive Board of Stroma."

Describe Stroma to a potential employee.

"Stroma is a very engaging employer, and anyone with the ambition to learn about different aspects of any role would enjoy working with the diverse team throughout the Group."
