Monitoring & Responding Officer

Akton Recruitment has an opening for a Monitoring & Responding Officer

Connected Care is a 24 hours, 365 days a year emergency service provided in house by Council. It offers vulnerable residents a personal alarm system which can be activated in case of an emergency. Additional it provides a mobile response service if there is an emergency in the residents home. We are looking for 2 x Monitoring and Responding Officers to work within the Connected Care Service.

Monitoring & Responding officers (MRO) are required to answer and respond to emergency calls from vulnerable service users from across the borough over Jontek's Answerlink call monitoring platform. When answering an emergency call, MROs will be required to identify and arrange appropriate intervention /support to ensure service users wellbeing. In addition this may mean visiting a service users home to help deal with the emergency. MROs will need to assess the service user's needs, condition and provide/source the support they require to ensure their wellbeing. As Connected Care is a 24/7 service Monitoring and Responding officers are required to work a pattern over 3 shifts 7am to 3pm, 3pm to 11pm and 11pm to 7am. To note there is a 20 minute handover at the start of each shift and so will be required to be at work 20 minutes before the start of their shift.

The candidates we are looking for should have experience of working within an emergency call monitoring centre dealing with vulnerable service users and experience of a call monitoring platform is essential i.e. PNC or Verklizan, however Answerlink (Jontek) would be preferred. As this role requires the candidate to provide mobile response service to service users home in case of an emergency, we are looking for experienced and competent drivers who hold a full clean UK driving licence. Council fleet vehicles are provided but passing the council driving assessment would be a requirement to use these. In the meantime they would be required to use their own vehicles and mileage would be paid.
