About the Opportunity:
The Residential Security Office serves Northeastern's residential community through providing customer service and access control for all on-campus housing. The Shift Supervisor plays an important role in the office, responsible for coordinating and overseeing regular shift operations in real-time, delegating tasks, and escalating incident response to appropriate University partners. This schedule for this position will be Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays 11PM to 7AM.

Shift Supervisors serve as a contact point and customer service for people seeking University information or assistance. They must successfully complete a rigorous training process at the start of the position. Supervisors ensure the safety of all residents and guests through enforcing Residential Security Office and Northeastern policies and procedures. This includes actively coordinating and guiding Proctors across 40 unique stations through both telephone communication and on-site inspections, maintaining written records of all reported incidents and outcomes. Supervisors regularly interact with Northeastern University Police and Public Safety officers, Housing Services personnel, and other University Professional Staff, and contact NUPD and Professional Staff for assistance in relevant incidents and alarms.
