News : Could You be the Voice of Sussex Police?
Sussex, UK, Feb 26, 2018 -- Could you reassure people in a time of crisis or keep them talking to find out where they are?
Are you a quick thinker, with an enquiring mind and an excellent multitasker?
Then maybe the Contact Handler role with Sussex Police is the job for you.
Sussex Police is looking for people to become Contact Handlers in the busy contact centre. Contact Handlers deal with a huge variety of emergency 999 calls, non-emergency 101 calls, online and social media communications and are often the first point of public contact with the police.
This is the first Contact Handler recruitment for 2018 but there will be more roles advertised this year to ensure that the contact centre provides a consistent service to the people of Sussex.
Chief Superintendent Jane Derrick, who is in charge of the contact centre, said: "The situations you will be faced with are as diverse as the communities we serve and you will be engaging with people of all ages and backgrounds.
"Working in a fast-paced 24/7 environment, you must be able to work under pressure, communicate clearly at all times and make critical decisions. You will need to be able to think on your feet, ask the right questions, listen for vital details, and log information quickly and accurately.
"It is also vital that you can strike the right balance between showing empathy with every caller, while not becoming too emotionally involved when dealing with sometimes difficult situations. You could take a call from someone who is suicidal and need to keep them talking for as long as possible, and immediately after take a call from someone reporting a lost bike – both are important and both need different support from the Contact Handler."
