Based in Boston we have some of the best technology available to monitor and record cameras across the East Lincolnshire area. We operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to protect the vulnerable and assist the police to create safer communities.
The role is challenging yet rewarding, with a real chance to make a difference to the lives of the people of Boston. The right person will have keen observation skills, an eye for detail and an inquisitive mind. You will be a good communicator, liaising with external organisations through telephone, radio and email. You will be polite, concise and courteous when assisting members of the public contacting the Council's Out of Hours service.

This position will involve some night working due to the 24hr nature of the CCTV service.
As a CCTV operator your main responsibilities will include operating CCTV cameras, monitoring screens and keeping accurate logs using software systems. Successful results usually involve teamwork, liaising with police and multi-tasking. A good CCTV operator is calm in an emergency, yet eager to help those in need.
