Area Commander – Jersey Fire and Rescue Service

We’re a Service on the move and we are ambitious. Our small ‘island nation’ context creates a complex and challenging operating environment and we want you to help lead us through our generational opportunity to develop.

– Provide positive, visible and engaging leadership across our wholetime and on-call teams, ensuring effective emergency response, including the Fire Control function;

– Working with the Area Commander (Fire Safety) to support the delivery of the service’s prevention and protection priorities;

– Ensure SJFRS is a good partner in Jersey’s wider resilience agenda and;

– Form part of the strategic command rota, leading and supporting people to resolve larger and more complex emergencies.

To be successful you will:

– Be credible, compelling and diplomatic with the ability to work confidently at the political level as well as with stakeholders;

– Be operating at the strategic ‘Leading the Service’ level in the National Fire Chiefs Council’s Leadership Framework as a strategic manager in a Fire and Rescue Service;

– Be competent and current in incident command at Levels 3 and 4;

– Be passionate, skilful and effective as a people leader, innovating and empowering those around you and;

– Be confident leading teams through complexity and ambiguity and responding to people and community needs.

And we still haven’t mentioned Island life. Not only will your professional exposure be significant, as will your opportunity to live an active outdoor life……all on your doorstop with no commute.
