  • The same system is available to the public to use, so it is wonderfully intuitive and easy to use.
  • Our client would still need you to respond immediately to the call out and text system and ideally be into the office within an hour of the call and text, ready to help.
  • Our client will require you to complete four straight-forward update tests a year, to confirm you are still available and still have the relevant information and understanding for the service – three will be sent to you to complete at home of approximately 30 minutes each, and one will be office based approximately 1 hour.

Financial considerations:

  • £30 per hour (WOW)! For each activation hour worked. Inclusive of any holiday pay.
  • £15 each for three quarterly 30 minute sessions remotely per annum.
  • £20 one annual office training visit for 1 hour.
  • £15 per hour for three hours initial training.


  • You will need to commit to three hours initial training which will be held during the day, evening and weekends to be able to fit around current work or personal commitments.

Exact dates and times will be released nearer to the time.

Next Steps:

  • Please apply now to register your interest.  Please include your full name, address, telephone number (both landline and mobile) and email address within the application.
  • After receipt of your interest to join the team we will contact you to arrange a chat in the office.

Although our client cannot foresee when an emergency will strike they have been advised that their services will likely be required during weekends and evenings so please bear this in mind before applying.
