Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service is recruiting two full-time Community Safety Advisors to arrange and deliver Safe and Well visits to residents in their homes across Gloucestershire. Your work will involve identifying fire risks for some of the County’s most vulnerable residents and engaging with the Service and local partners to mitigate those risks. You will provide advice and fit equipment in people’s homes and will support the Prevention Team in delivering safeguarding and community safety initiatives and campaigns.
The ideal candidate will be confident, compassionate and resilient and able to remain calm and empathetic under challenging conditions. You will have the support of a highly-skilled, professional team but may often be working alone. This post would suit somebody with experience in a fire and rescue service but training will be given to the right candidate from a related sector. It is important to read the job profile as this is a rewarding but demanding role in which you will be able to make a difference to your community.
