UK STARTS HIR­ING FOR CRI­SIS CEN­TRE

Deccan Chronicle - - World -

Lon­don, Feb. 9: The UK gov­ern­ment has be­gun hir­ing for jobs in a new cri­sis com­mand and con­trol cen­tre to be set up to tackle with a chaotic nodeal Brexit next month, a me­dia re­port said on Satur­day.

Brief­ing notes have been is­sued by the UK's Depart­ment for En­vi­ron­ment, Food and Ru­ral Af­fairs (DE­FRA) to re­cruit­ment agen­cies to seek po­ten­tial re­cruits for the so-called EU Exit Emergencies Cen­tre (EUXE).

“The EUXE cen­tre is de­signed to be a tem­po­rary mea­sure and the au­thor­ity ex­pects its life­time to last about six months, with a po­ten­tial for fur­ther ex­ten­sions in three-month pe­ri­ods, should an on­go­ing need arise, po­ten­tially up to two years,” the job de­scrip­tion re­port­edly reads. Ap­pli­cants are ex­pected to be re­cruited on a six-month con­tract with an op­tion for three­month ex­ten­sions up to two years.

Their qual­i­fi­ca­tions must in­clude an “un­flap­pable” ap­proach while brief­ing min­is­ters and the UK Cab­i­net Of­fice on any un­fold­ing emergencies in a no-deal sce­nario. They could earn be­tween 300 and 400 pounds a day and must be pre­pared to start by the end of this month, as the March 29 Brexit dead­line nears.

Ac­cord­ing to re­port, DE­FRA is re­cruit­ing for at least three dif­fer­ent roles: brief­ing emer­gency cen­tre of­fi­cers, li­ai­son emer­gency cen­tre of­fi­cers and sit­u­a­tion emer­gency cen­tre of­fi­cers.
