Emergency Control Room Operator (onshore)



Are you resilient under pressure with the ability to effectively prioritise work and deliver succinct reports?

As a Restrata Emergency Control Room Operator (CRO), you will play key part in Restrata’s expanding international operations by working shifts in a purpose built Global Operations Command Centre (GOCC), operating 24/7/365.

The GOCC has all the facilities required by major energy and other industry operators to respond to a significant incident. The GOCC is also used to support Restrata training operations, and you may also be required to support training. Day-to-day management of the Emergency Control Room Operators and the GOCC is the responsibility of the Response Supervisor.

Whilst on duty you will be the primary point of contact for initiating a company’s emergency response procedures, via the 24/7/365 Restrata Emergency Line or Restrata’s Platform. For this reason, the main trait of the successful candidate will be resilience under pressure. You will be given training in established response procedures and the systems used within the GOCC, but you will need to be confident, quick witted, and able to act on your own initiative unsupervised.  Furthermore, you must be confidently Information Technology (IT) literate and ideally have achieved ECDL certification or similar.  The technological nature of the Restrata Global Command Centre means that you may be called upon to attempt to fault- find within software packages and attempt to remedy basic IT issues.

On completion of an appropriate probationary period, you may be required to undertake a variety of supporting roles in Restrata training courses, bringing you into contact with a wide variety of clients and experiences. As you gain confidence and experience in your new role, you may also be encouraged to contribute to the development and delivery of training.

The variety of the work and the challenges it brings means that the role of CRO is a demanding one. You will work 12-hour day and night shifts on a rotational basis and are expected to remain on standby out with the office as the rota requires. As such, the successful candidate must have a can-do attitude and a willingness to pitch in and go the extra mile in pursuit of the best outcome for the client. Demanding though it may be, the role of CRO offers exposure to incident management and HSE culture and the experience of working with multinational clients on critical projects.  When not on duty or on standby, you will also enjoy the generous leave package and regular time off.
