We are seeking a suitable candidate for the role of Crew Commander On-Call Support Manager, to promote and support the management of 10 stand-alone On-Call stations across the county.
The successful candidate will be based at Headquarters, although there will be a requirement of the role to travel throughout Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.
This is a full-time position (42 hours a week), on flexible working conditions, including some evening and occasional weekend commitment.
The post holder will report to the Watch Commander On-Call Support Manager, and support the Station Commander On-Call North and South, to deliver activities captured within annual objectives, covering operational resilience, attraction, recruitment and retention of On-Call staff.
The role will be focused on enhancing operational assurance, providing operational resilience where required, supporting service delivery and promoting the transformation and modernisation of the On-Call provision. It offers an excellent opportunity to assist with the recruitment of new staff, working alongside colleagues to help promote new working arrangements.
The post holder will support all new staff in their training and development, from Induction to the completion of their modular training.
The post attracts an additional five per cent discretionary (non-pensionable) payment for added resilience. This payment will be paid in arrears as a lump sum at the end of the financial year and will be pro-rata for months completed.
Additional investment in training is being considered for this post with the intention for a breathing apparatus instructor qualification at the Fire Service College to assist in supporting staff development plans.
The post holder must demonstrate excellent leadership qualities that align with the NFCC Leadership Framework – Leading Others.
We welcome applications to join BFRS from those currently serving within a UK local authority fire & rescue service, as a competent and substantive Crew Commander, working the On-Call (RDS) or the Wholetime Duty System.
Should you require further details or an informal discussion regarding this role, please contact Station Commander Jamie Humphrey: email@example.com
