James Weir a Senior Conversation Officer

Dorset’s historic buildings and landscapes are a sweet shop of delights and every day my role lets me try something new. I love being part of a great team that works hard to manage change to Dorset’s heritage in a way that keeps it meaningful and beautiful for future generations.

David Trotter a Risk and Resilience Officer

Working within Assurance and Resilience I’m a category one first responder acting as a Crisis Management Officer when I’m on call. I’m also the project officer for the Excess Deaths Advisory Group and Mass Fatalities Management Coordination Group.

I particularly enjoy the variation my role brings, and how each day is different. It also gives me the opportunity to use creative innovation and to produce something new.
