We're Recruiting Mobile Speed Camera Operators

Explore a career as a Mobile Speed Camera Operator and make a difference to road safety.

Mobile Speed Cameras

G4S partners with Transport for NSW to reduce road fatalities by providing a dedicated team of speed camera operators.  The operation is a proven way to get drivers to slow down and the program saves lives. As well as tackling road safety, the revenue from fines goes towards upgrading roads for people in regional New South Wales.

By moving around to different locations at different times to detect speeding, we support the perception of ‘anywhere, anytime’ enforcement and boost police operations.  In addition to encouraging safe and legal road user behaviour and minimising the risk of road trauma, our Road Safety teams allow police more time to enforce other important road safety issues such as drink and drug driving.

The role of a Mobile Speed Camera Operator
Our Mobile Speed Camera Operators are skilled and trained to work alone in an enforcement vehicle that links to a control centre.  It is a physical role with unusual hours and early and late starts.

They perform pre and post shift vehicle inspections, collect and drive a vehicle to a scheduled and approved site, position the vehicle at the enforcement site using in-vehicle technology, perform a site risk assessment, photograph and report on site maintenance issues, and coordinate camera set up and testing with the control room, with whom they have regular contact.  With direction from the control room, they also relocate vehicles and cameras between storage sites or the main depot.

While the in-field operator is outside the vehicle and actively monitoring for hazards from the public, our Quality and Compliance Operators provide a direct line of communication.  They are available to respond immediately to duress alarm activations.  All officers are trained to respond to angry and aggressive behaviour.

The work involves travelling alone through regional and remote locations, extended periods seated in a vehicle, and occasional overnight travel with accommodation provided.
Staff undertake 12-hour shifts on a 24/7 rotating roster.

Full time rates (during training):
Weekdays: $26.18 per hour

Sundays: $39.27 per hour

Casual rates (during training):
Weekdays: $32.73 per hour

Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance will I get the roster?
Rosters for MSCO’s are generally published 2 weeks in advance. The rosters are rotational, and no 2 weeks are the same.
Will I need to use my own car?
MSCO’s are not required to use their own car.  They arrive at their depot, park their vehicles and pick up a MSC Vehicle. 
What safety measures are in place?
The Road Safety team supports operators in the field by making supervision and expert advice available to them in real time.  The Quality and Compliance Operators based in our 24-hour Network Operations Centre have ‘eyes on’ through each vehicle's CCTV.
How are infringements generated?
Speed enforcement is an automated process conducted by the vehicle's camera.  The vehicle camera technology partner to the Transport for NSW Mobile Speed Camera Program is Acusensus.  If a vehicle is detected speeding, a digital image of the vehicle is recorded and used to generate an infringement.  

The role of G4S is to support field operations by supplying manned vehicles that are driven to locations where the camera technology is deployed.  We also manage scheduling and control room operations.
