There is great potential for growth within this role and it offers real variety as our Contact Officers are trained to perform numerous roles within the Command Hub. Successful candidates will be recruited on a training Scale 3 £18,933, plus a shift allowance of up to 20% plus weekend working allowance progressing through the grades as training is completed and competence in the role is completed.
