OUR PEOPLE

In emergency management, you need to trust your processes, you need faith in your planning, and most of all you need to be confident in your people. There is very little margin for error as people’s safety, client assets and reputation are at risk.

Since our inception in 2005, we have made it policy to differentiate Dynamiq in the market by having a large team of full time experts at the disposal of our clients. We have, over time, established a trusted advisor status with our clients.

“Dynamiq has an excellent reputation in the industry, so I was pleased to become part of the team when the opportunity came up. I currently work as a Team Leader with Dynamiq Assist. The work itself is valuable and I’ve had many opportunities for career progression.”
