Inverroy works across all sectors, in particular energy and renewables, to design bespoke resilience management solutions to ensure organisations are ready to respond when disruption strikes. With more than 300 years of collective experience, Inverroy supports organisations to build robust response and recovery procedures, train teams and deliver emergency exercises to validate plans and processes.

The Role

As part of the Inverroy team, you will assist the Operations Manager to help Inverroy improve its market position and achieve financial growth.

Inverroy prides itself on the provision of outstanding professional advice and support to enhance a client’s overall resilience but focusing specifically on Emergency Response, Crisis Management and Business Continuity Management, known collectively as “Crisis and Continuity Management” or “C&CM”. In the last year, this core offering has been supplemented by another key resilience capability – Security Risk Management.
