Making sure the Royal Borough of Greenwich is prepared for a major incident or emergency is a priority for the Council.
We work in partnership with the emergency services and other London boroughs to develop plans that will ensure a coordinated response in the event of an emergency.
Partnership working is vital because the actions of one organisation in an emergency could impact on all of the others involved.
The Council is looking for a dynamic, forward thinking and innovative resilience professional who is able to coordinate on contingency plan preparation, emergency planning, business continuity, training and exercising on behalf of the Council.
The successful candidate will be required to respond to operational requirements as may be necessitated by an emergency. You will participate in the agreed duty officer scheme and manage incidents for the Borough out of office hours as required. Previous experience and knowledge of the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 and the multi-agency approach to emergency planning required.
As well as having excellent presentation skills, the successful candidate will demonstrate sound verbal and written communication skills and have a good understanding of Microsoft office packages.
