The Research, Development and Engineering (RD&E) Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Associate Manager leads deployment of SC Johnson's SHE management practices for the global RD&E organization to ensure compliance with local legal requirements and SCJ global standards. The Associate Manager is experienced in seeing the big picture to align SC Johnson's overall safety, health and environmental strategies with the RD&E organization's targets and objectives. This individual will ensure that teams know the right things to be working on (or not working on) based on this alignment. While this role requires safety, health and environmental technical knowledge and experience, success is equally dependent on developing and supporting "champions" at sites within the RD&E organization to drive day-to-day ownership for SHE. This position is part of a matrix organization and involves frequent interaction with global and business unit RD&E and SHE leaders to review progress on established objectives and review opportunities for continued success.
SC Johnson's total compensation packages are at or above industry levels. In addition to salary, total packages may include bonuses, long-term incentives, matching 401(k) contributions and profit sharing based on company profitability, job level and years of service. As a family company, we're committed to providing benefits such as subsidized health care plans, maternity/paternity/adoption leave, flexible work arrangements, vacation purchase options, recreation and fitness centers, childcare, counseling services and more.
