Fire and Emergency service. As a chief officer, part of your role and responsibility will be hiring new staff for your station. Let’s assume your station is expanding and you must now hire a candidate to fill a deputy chief position. There are two parts to this assignment. In the first part, you will develop a job description for the new deputy chief.
The job description should accurately classify the duties and responsibilities of the position, not the personal qualities you are seeking in a candidate. Tip: Your description should answer the question “What does the person in this role actually do?” as opposed to what kind of person do I want in this position?” Research other deputy chief job descriptions from various fire departments to help guide you as you develop this assignment. The assignment aid Preparing a Job Description offers some basic guidance.
You must create an original job description and training plan based on the needs you have identified as the chief officer. Secondly, do not simply revise and submit a job description you find online or have access to at your place of employment. Also You must create this job description and the subsequent training plan in a way that demonstrates your understanding of leadership concepts presented in this course.
However, remember as the chief officer, your leadership involves setting the tone, vision, and direction of the organization. Hence the job description and training plan you develop will help communicate your objectives. Then Keep in mind this is a detailed job description, not a job posting. Your job description must identify at a minimum: the title of the position, job duties and responsibilities (including span of control),required qualifications, preferred qualifications, and working conditions.
You must outline an education and training plan for this position. Aditionally, that will be implemented once a candidate has been hired. Also This should contain a synopsis of the professional development trajectory you expect the new deputy chief to follow
