Special Operations Response Teams

Team Leader – Enhancing Capabilities - Secondment

1 x Newbridge, Edinburgh

The National Risk & Resilience Department (NRRD) provides a comprehensive, effective and robust organisation-wide structure for risk management, integrated emergency planning and resilience, business continuity and specialised operational response, including the Special Operations Response Teams and Community First Responders across Scotland. The Department also manages logistics and training for specialised response. We work directly with the Scottish Government and an extensive network of external organisations responsible for resilience and emergency response on a Scottish and UK level.

Following extensive dialogue with the Scottish Government, the NRRD will manage a complex programme of work to further enhance the specialist capability of the Scottish Ambulance Service to provide safe and effective patient care in Hazardous Environments. An experienced Team Leader is now required to work with the Programme Manager, NRRD team and stakeholders to manage specific aspects of the implementation of this programme.

The post will require the ability to work across fields including operational procedures and tactics, clinical standards, training and education, resilience and preparedness, fleet development, information and communications technology. You will have the ability to engage with ambulance personnel and external stakeholders and communicate information and progress with clarity and confidence.

To excel in this role, you will be flexible, open-minded, self-motivated and able to work with a minimum of supervision to achieve goals - often under pressure of conflicting priorities or deadlines.

The nature of the role means that you will be required to deal with sensitive information for which official Security Clearance (SC) will be required in addition to baseline checks.
