Launch of JESIP Workforce Survey 2023

Frontline emergency services staff are being invited to take part in a survey on JESIP that is being hosted by independent research company, Ipsos UK, on behalf of the Home Office. The JESIP Team has been involved in developing the survey and it has the team’s support and endorsement.

The survey is open to commanders of all levels, control room staff, and those in non-commander roles from the police, fire and rescue, and ambulance services in England and Wales. It should take no more than 10 to 15 minutes to complete.  

The survey aims to understand how JESIP is currently working in responder organisations through exploring emergency services practitioners’ existing knowledge and awareness of JESIP and their impressions and experiences of putting it into practice.

Participation is voluntary, however, taking part is strongly encouraged. This is your chance to have a say about JESIP, how you think it is working currently in your organisation or service, and how you think it could be further improved.

During the survey, you will be asked about your experience of multi-agency training and exercising, your familiarity with JESIP models and products, your perceptions on JESIP embeddedness and what you see as the main barriers and enablers to successfully implementing JESIP.

The findings from the survey will help the JESIP Team, government and emergency services to further improve how JESIP is taught and exercised and how it is embedded and applied at incidents, towards better attainment of JESIP’s over-arching objective of ‘working together, saving lives’.

The survey is part of a programme of further research on JESIP being undertaken by the Homeland Security Group at the Home Office to strengthen the evidence base on JESIP. It is due to run from now until the end of September.

Findings from the research will be used to directly inform decisions on how JESIP is implemented in future, as well as the development and delivery of targeted interventions to further improve JESIP embedding across all responder organisations.
