Safety doesn’t happen by accident    

Everyone knows that creating a safe environment doesn’t happen by accident. Which is why the women and men of our airport rescue and firefighting teams spend the majority of their time working on the proactive prevention of incidents and accidents and monitor airside safety whilst being meticulously prepared for any eventuality should an emergency happen.  

People, planes, premises and airside security perimeters all come under our extremely varied and unusually wide range of airside safety responsibilities across the airport’s day-to-day operations. Also, with the diverse activities across the Ports of Jersey business, we enthusiastically engage with colleagues across the harbour, marina and coastguard, as well as ground handling agencies, to support a broader safety programme. In addition to keeping your specialist skills and fitness levels at their peak with continuous training and simulation exercises, you’ll be involved with providing on-site paramedic expertise, maintaining fire-fighting equipment, keeping wildlife away from the airfield, delivering fire evacuation and first-aid courses and so much more. And, because we’re open 365 days a year, you’ll be working on a rotating shift system.    

Of course, a good level of fitness and eyesight, along with a clean driving licence and being able to obtain and maintain a HGV one, are essential. Initial training is intense and your competence across the different disciplines will be assessed on a rolling basis. We’re interested in what you can bring to this team rather than what you’ve done in the past. 

If you’d like to hear more about this really exciting opportunity and talk informally about whether this is an option for you, please email Ashley Maggs on Ashley.maggs@ports.je or alternatively, please apply by visiting www.ports.je/recruitment
