About the role
The services delivered by the Communities, Economy and Transport department (CET) have an enormous impact on the lives of local people and the natural environment. From operating waste facilities and registration offices, to maintaining roads and major infrastructure planning, the moment an East Sussex resident steps outside their front door, they are interacting with our work. Therefore, roles in our department offer enormous scope to make a positive impact on the quality of life for people and the environment of East Sussex. We are looking for people who can help us to improve the links between the areas we operate in, such as using libraries, improving adult literacy, transporting vulnerable people to the shops to help keep them independent or installing high speed broadband to support businesses to modernise.
The Emergency Planning Team leads on emergency planning and business continuity planning and provides support for senior managers during an emergency. Members of the team have a range of specialisms covering things like flooding and mass fatalities, and we also work in partnership with a range of other councils and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, to ensure everyone’s statutory responsibilities are fulfilled and that we are well prepared should a major emergency occur. The team also supports the Sussex Resilience Forum, a multi-agency partnership whose members have statutory responsibilities to work together to prepare, respond to and recover from emergencies and major incidents.
