Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) is a volunteer based emergency service. Our highly skilled and equipped Volunteers are trained comprehensively in a wide range of emergency environments. To minimise the impact of emergencies when they occur and strengthen the community's capacity to recover swiftly and safely, VICSES focuses on working with communities and partners in building resilience to achieve more aware, informed and prepared communities.  We support them to understand their risk and the relevance of taking action before, during and after emergency events.

As the largest road rescue network in Australia we have specialist teams that provide a 24/7 response to road accident and trauma incidents. We assist Victoria Police in search and rescue operations, and play an important role in supporting the Country Fire Authority (CFA), Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV), Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) during major bushfire and emergency incidents. 

VICSES is committed to being a child safe organisation. At VICSES we support the safety, participation, wellbeing and empowerment of children we seek to ensure the safety of children involved in all VICSES activities. It is the responsibility of all members to comply with the Child Safety Policy, and act in accordance with the Child Safety Code of Conduct, which are all available on the VICSES HUB. VICSES offers Flexible Working Arrangements and where possible, Job Sharing may also be considered.


The Wellbeing, Health, Safety & Rehabilitation (WHSR) Officer focuses on delivering WHS initiatives and data analysis under the guidance of the Health, Wellbeing and Rehabilitation (HWR) Manager. The role assists with enquiries from members and provides a high level of understanding of WHS team roles/responsibilities to effectively triage enquiries as appropriate. The role collates WHS data and coordinates the preparation of reports, documents and meetings.
