Position Details

WHO ARE WE: Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) is a volunteer based emergency service. Our highly skilled and equipped Volunteers are trained comprehensively in a wide range of emergency environments. To minimise the impact of emergencies when they occur and strengthen the community's capacity to recover swiftly and safely, VICSES focuses on working with communities and partners in building resilience to achieve more aware, informed and prepared communities.  We support them to understand their risk and the relevance of taking action before, during and after emergency events.

As the control agency for flood, storm, tsunami, earthquake and landslide emergency, we take the lead in the preparation and response for those hazards. Under the coordination of Emergency Management Victoria (EMV), VICSES works within the broader emergency management sector, wherein all agencies and services work as one to ensure the safety of the state.

We also work closely with key partners and municipal councils throughout Victoria to develop and improve their emergency management plans in relation to the performance and exercise of their duties and responsibilities under the Emergency Management Acts 1986 and 2013.

Enhance the Region's professional service delivery standards by participating in the planning for and management of operational activities, including the provision of response and command duties by participating on a rotating roster as Duty Officer, responding to media requests, monitoring and updating the incidents within OIMS, this includes after hours and weekend rosters.

Contribute to the strategic directions of VICSES by participating in the preparation and monitoring of the Regional Training calendar, undertaking training needs analysis and participating in the planning, preparation and implementation of the Regional training calendar including facilitation, delivery and monitoring as required, reviewing competency based training programs, including moderation activities, quality assurance, validation of assessment materials, and identification of trends, issues and benefits.

Enhance VICSES operational readiness by supporting the Region in conducting Unit inspections and audits ensuring they are conducted according to the planned rotations each year and any remedial actions are clearly planned and addressed in the Regional Training plan.
