Otago Regional Council
24 March 2017
Over the last few years we have come to understand that what never happens, does! New Zealand has had its fair share of emergencies/disasters and we are working hard to ensure we, and our communities, are as prepared as possible for the next event.
We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated person to join the Emergency Management Otago Team, based predominantly in the Dunedin District, to help us further develop our capability to respond immediately and effectively to any major incident/emergency.
The focus of this new role is to assist with the development, implementation, and continuous improvement of our emergency plans, with a major focus on the development and delivery of partnership based community emergency response plans.
We are looking for a person with a broad knowledge of the issues and challenges of emergency management as well as demonstrable experience working in the community sector. The role requires someone who is approachable and inclusive, but who can also be analytical in their approach. Experience working on projects both independently and as part of a team is also desirable.
Prior knowledge of Coordinated Incident Management Systems and NZ Legislation in relation to Emergencies/Disasters would also be a distinct advantage in this role. Our ideal applicant will also have experience in training and or teaching adults as well as the ability to engage with a wide range of people and community groups.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who has had previous experience or who wants to branch into this area and further develop their career in the wider emergency response sector.
This position is full time permanent.
