The NRRD provides a comprehensive, effective and robust organisation-wide structure for risk management, integrated emergency planning and resilience, business continuity and specialised operational response, including the Special Operations Response Teams and Community First Responders across Scotland. The Department also manages logistics and training for specialised response. We work directly with the Scottish Government and an extensive network of external organisations responsible for resilience and emergency response on a Scottish and UK level.

You will be responsible for the further development of the risk management database (DATIX) system. This would include co-ordinating the associated training within the Service together with providing comprehensive support, with the aim of improving and expanding end user knowledge and proficiency in the use of the system. You will also act as the minute secretary for various committees and will organise appointments, meetings and diary commitments for Risk Management and other functions within NRRD.
