Even in a better place, the unexpected can happen
North Norfolk is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a glorious coastline famed for its big skies enjoyed by those who live, work and holiday in the area. Whilst for the majority of the time it is an idyllic place, sometimes the unexpected can occur.
We are seeking an experienced and self-confident person to be the lead practitioner in developing, managing and maintaining sound and effective emergency planning and business continuity systems. You will also promote good standards of safety at all public events in the district, both Council run and events run by others.
You should have a relevant qualification and experience together with excellent communication and organisational skills.
You will be responsible for ensuring the Council meets its statutory duty in relation to the Civil Contingencies Act and, working in partnership with other agencies, support the warning and informing, initial response and recovery if the worst does happen with expert knowledge and advice.
Maintaining the top level Business Continuity plan and ensuring teams and departments have up to date plans, you will make sure the Council can recover quickly should a disruptive event impact on our ability to deliver services. Externally, you will support businesses to embed business continuity into their operations.
Working with event organisers through the multiagency North Norfolk Safety Advisory Group, you will ensure that events which take place in our district comply with relevant guidance and standards of safety and welfare and do not adversely impact on the communities they take place in.
North Norfolk District Council is committed to equality and diversity in employment and encourages applications from all sections of the community.
