Emergency services experts are being sought to share their expertise and research or act as a Committee specialist adviser.
A Parliamentary Committee is preparing for a piece of work on the challenges emergency services in the UK face, and whether greater collaboration within and between emergency response services could present solutions and provide services that are better for the user. The Committee’s secretariat is looking for researchers with expertise in this area, including people working on individual services, and anyone studying different models of how emergency and/or blue-light responders collaborate.
Researchers can feed into the work by:
* submitting written evidence,
* giving oral evidence, or
* working as a specialist adviser for the Committee.
For the specialist adviser role, the team are looking specifically for people with expertise covering multiple emergency services. The specialist adviser role would be completed alongside your BU duties one day per week and is paid (not voluntary).
Complete this short Microsoft form with your details to express interest in supplying your research evidence to inform the Committee’s work or to work as the specialist adviser.
The form will ask for your personal details and for you to:
- Outline your expertise (max. 100 words)
- Provide a link to your BU profile
- If possible, to provide a link to a video or recording of you speaking publicly
Some more information on the Specialist Adviser role:
The deadline is Thursday 1 September 2022 (to express interest in providing evidence or applying for the specialist adviser role). After 1 September, once the Committee begins its work, there will be more opportunities to submit written evidence and / or express an interest in giving oral evidence through the Committee’s webpages.
