Its all about putting local people at the heart of everything, listening to and doing good for our communities. We’re now more innovative, more efficient and provide better value for money. The changes are clear to see - from new businesses and jobs, to improving school results and to museums being recognised for their community engagement.

 

Shape a better future with us

 

We’re thrilled to have achieved Investors in People (IIP) Gold status for how we lead, support and develop people and have recently been awarded a distinction in the British Safety Council International Safety Awards 2022.  Now we’d like you to be part of our success and help us take change further. Join us on our journey to a brighter future. By working together, with each other and with our communities, we can take pride in improving lives. Let’s make a better Barnsley for everyone.

 

Your role in our journey

 

As a Civil Contingencies Advisor you’ll provide specialist support to a wide range of council services and external organisations. Put simply, you’ll make sure we comply with all legislation, guidance and best practice in relation to civil contingencies in our role as a Category One responder.  A range of people will look to you for advice and guidance, and you’ll assess our plans, policies, procedures, training and exercising.  In the event of incidents and emergencies, you will directly be involved in the Council’s response be it an incident affecting communities or the Council (for this occasional work outside normal office hours will be required and the post is part of a standby duty rota).

 

What you’ll need

 

To join us, you’ll need to have completed relevant specialist training and qualifications, and have secured membership of an appropriate emergency planning/resilience organisation. You’ll bring to the role a strong track record of achievement, including: providing advice and guidance to managers and external agencies; developing, testing and implementing emergency resilience policies, procedures and plans; developing, producing and presenting effective information, training and exercises; developing business continuity plans and multi-agency working.

 

A lot to look forward to

 

Here at Barnsley, we live and work by four important values: honesty, teamwork, excellent service, and taking pride in what we do. As part of our team, you can be sure we’ll do all we can to support you in being truly excellent. You see, we prioritise learning and enabling you to achieve your potential. So, we’ve created a development process that lets you grow in the way that suits you - whether that’s training to be a leader, or learning flexibly online.
