The NSW State Emergency Service (NSW SES) is the primary agency that responds to flood, storm, and tsunami emergencies. It also offers critical rescue and search capabilities for missing persons to other agencies. Most of the NSW SES members are volunteers who pledge to assist their community in times of crisis.
NSW SES Unit Commanders play a crucial role in managing teams of volunteers during the recruitment, training, and maintenance of the volunteer lifecycle. They are also responsible for ensuring the efficient operation of facilities and the agency's fleet (road and marine) in their area. A Deputy Unit Commander, a Unit Management Team, and a small staff group support volunteer Units across Southern NSW.
The NSW SES provides many training opportunities and professional development for seasoned managers and those striving to enhance their skills. You will connect with regional leaders and expand your professional network through the Unit Commander role.
Overall, the NSW SES is a volunteer-driven organization that is dedicated to providing emergency assistance during natural disasters. The Unit Commanders and their teams of volunteers are essential in maintaining the agency's mission and ensuring that communities receive the assistance they need during critical times.
