I am a Community Risk Analyst in East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service (ESFRS) and have just taken on the role of local NWFS representative. I work at Headquarters in the Prevention & Protection Directorate and a lot of my work involves Community Profiling, identifying high risk areas and households and helping to prioritise our Home Safety Visit campaign. I have been in ESFRS for almost 10 years, most of which has been in this role and I really enjoy the statistical analysis and strategic planning that my job entails.
I previously worked at Sainsbury’s head office as a Project Manager and a Communications Analyst so I have quite varied experience which is useful in my current role.
In the last couple of years I have been working with and chairing the Professional Women’s Group in ESFRS and our biggest achievement to date is setting up a local women’s network for ESFRS employees called SWAN (Supporting Women’s Aspirations Now). This is going very well and we have had a slowly expanding membership since we launched in June 2011.
I balance my work life with a husband and 10 year old son at home and if I have any spare time I like to read, bake and go to Zumba classes. I am also a soloist in a large choir in Eastbourne and sing in a small, close harmony, vocal group (available for weddings, funerals and bar mitzvahs).
