What does a Duty Officer do?

The Duty Officer role is a voluntary position, primarily performing rostered duty across SLSQ’s designated patrol season. The position is designed to use suitably qualified members to enhance delivery of lifesaving services across South East Queensland.

Duty Officers provide vital support to surf life saving clubs and patrol captains each weekend, ensuring that services are rolled out effectively and efficiently across South East Queensland. As a Duty Officer, you will be responsible for liaising with a wide range of key stakeholders including clubs, patrol captains & their patrol groups, emergency service organisations, SurfCom operators, individual members and media outlets to ensure that beach-goers are offered maximum protection and the best possible outcome is achieved for all parties.
