Wanted: Emergency Management Facilitator & Trainer

Effective, experienced Emergency Management Professionals are few and far between in New Zealand. Those that have experience in front of large organisations, building programs and facilitating them to an industry recognised standard are a commodity.

But it’s this unique breed we’re looking for in our new Emergency Management Facilitator role.

RiskLogic New Zealand has grown into the country’s leading supplier of resiliency services. A brief skim over our client base provides a sense of the journey we’re going on. A journey we require very unique, skilled people to be a part of.

In this new year, we’re looking to grow our team with an Auckland based position within our Emergency Management solutions.

Why now is the time to join us

In September last year, the news of RiskLogic’s acquisition by First 5 Group broke, making us the largest, leading supplier of resiliency and Emergency Management services in Australasia and Asia.

Although our growth was already at its highest for the region, the combining of businesses provides New Zealand organisations with unrivaled resources at affordable prices, delivered by award-winning professionals.

Does this growth sound like something you want to be a part of?

We take pride in providing opportunity to our team. A quiet day is rare, and you will seldom work on the same tasks. This means the clients and organisations you will help support will provide exciting and refreshing output each time.

As we obtain new office space, meet with new and innovative brands, design and build new offerings and programs, you will be immersed in this exciting time for us.

Who we’re looking for

  • Minimum 3 years’ experience facilitating training sessions and emergency exercises.
  • Demonstrated ability to create, build and maintain strong relationships at all levels.
  • Exceptional leadership, project management and organisational skills.
  • Ability to problem solve and influence project outcomes.
  • Emergency exercise management qualifications (highly desirable).
  • Experience in Emergency Management disciplines.
  • Understanding of business continuity principles and processes would be well regarded.
  • Strong understanding of relevant New Zealand Standards, in particular a sound understanding of fire regulations.
  • Current driver’s license (and own vehicle); a must.
  • The ability to adapt to diverse environments and manage multiple priorities.
  • Strong presentation, training and emergency exercise facilitation skills.
  • A strong drive for continuous improvement and delivery of quality outcomes.
  • Self-motivation, with a proven ability to effectively work remotely from managers and other team members.

We’ve broken down more about this via our Seek listing, however you can always contact us for a quick discussion on the opportunity if you have more questions.

A day in the life

Our previous Emergency Management facilitator was often found assisting in a variety of projects (we don’t just keep you to one section). Below is a generic example of his day.

8.30am: Checking emails, calendars and our project software, Nick see’s a sale has dropped over night from the MetService. Before his coffee is up, Adelaide University also drops in.

9.00am: Into the bustling city of sails, Nick meets his first contact of the day for a coffee at his favourite café. They talk about recent events in Australia and what we forecast New Zealand will do to prepare. 45 minutes later, the contact has asked for a proposal by Nick which he’ll forward to Mary at head office to assist in.

10.00am: Nick meets with his first client (a direct result of the concerns over the March 15th shooting). This private school needs lockdown, exercises and a full review of their campus. But first, Nick needs to get to know them. After a half hour tour of the campus and procedures, he begins mapping out the requirements.

11.15am: Nick calls Brad, our Country Manager to ask his thoughts on our availability and a scenario exercise that may be useful for the school. Brad moves around some calendars and sends our Resilience Manager in the following week to assist in a full lockdown drill with Nick.

12pm: Lunch is had back in the city with a current client who invited him to their new office café. Although this wasn’t arranged to be a BD meeting, Nick has done a quick demo of our Emergency Management tool, Activate. His second proposal of the day is out.

1pm: After a good meal and chat, Nick needs some time to get through emails, workloads and these new project scopes. So, he heads to a shared office space Mary had arranged for him last month.

3pm: Ollie, our Commercial Marketing Manager has had a plan around CIMS training and providing a new, industry leading service offering to combat the FENZ regulation. He wants Nick’s input and professional opinion; as he’ll be running this. They jump on a Zoom meeting to go through the concept before Nick gets his head down to draft a short blog.

4.30pm: After call drops from the morning’s client. “Nick, you mentioned that you may be able to help with Crisis Management and that technology you spoke about? Can we talk further?” Brad & Andy are back in Auckland the following week, so he arranges a full presentation for the school and their board.

5.30pm: A big day for all, he gets a call from Andy offering an early dinner and wine.

If a day like this meets your expectations, apply here.
