The roles to be filled are as follows:
While these positions are voluntary, your expenses and professional development will be paid for. Training opportunities in Wellington, Christchurch (and other locations) with experienced emergency management professionals will be available.
You will need flexibility in your employment and family life so that you can respond to emergency events when required.
You will join a team of local volunteers, backed up by professional staff based in Richmond and Nelson.

Please note: you may not meet all of the requirements contained in this position description. However if you think you have something to offer we would still like to hear from you as professional development and experience may assist the right person to grow into the role.
