The 2016 Northshore SES Information night has been heralded a great success, after 34 prospective volunteers turned up to find out more about the Northshore SES unit and the SES in general.
Deputy Local Manager Hazel Darkin said that interest in joining was significantly higher than the same time last year. “We had over 100 people on our annual waitlist, and were are excited that 34 of those actually showed up to the information night”.
The interview rounds will take place next Wednesday night, with formal offers being made to the successful candidates shortly thereafter.
To become a volunteer at the Northshore SES unit, volunteers need to commit to attending Wednesday night training, with a minimum 75% rule per annum in force. Training is on a Wednesday evening, typically between 1930hrs and 2230hrs. In addition to weekly training, there is a requirement to give up some weekends for courses (as there are some course that just cannot be run on a Wednesday night).
