- Either you work on the actual sites and come back to the office to complete the required paperwork/follow through
- or you end up working with stakeholders from different companies that could mean that you don't actually leave the office
I know one person in the latter role and someone who's not in exactly emergency planning but would do what uve described in the former. In most cases, when you apply for roles they will make it quite clear as to whether or not you go on site and how much that will be
I'm assuming you're already working?
Yes, for a statutory authority, managing risk and protecting assets so there's some relevance/ transferable experience and skills to emergency planning. Is emergency planning in emergency services and the NHS similar to that in local authorities?
Thanks. What would you do on site though as an emergency planning officer? Because the "planning" in the title sort of implies that you're planning ahead for emergencies rather than responding to emergencies and hence doing mainly desktop exercises. The only thing I can think of is arranging training exercises or doing site specific assessments, but I imagine this to be more town planning than emergency planning.
Cool. Did the emergency planning job not appeal to you as much? And do you know how corporate the job is?i.e. Is it removed from the corporate world? Or is it very much integrated Into it?
