From time to time we hold recruitment drives for wholetime and retained firefighters - can you rise to the challenge?
Not everyone can. Today’s firefighters are highly trained, skilled individuals, who have the fitness and stamina to keep working when the going gets tough.
You must be able to demonstrate that you;
- Work effectively as part of a team
- Are able to communicate with all members of the community
- Have a logical approach to problems
- Have good eyesight and colour perception
- Are physically fit
- Have good unaided hearing
The recruitment procedure comprises of ability and physical assessments, interview and medical examination.
Successful wholetime candidates will attend a residential training course of about 11 weeks in duration at an approved centre, during which full pay will be received.
Successful retained candidates will attend weekend training courses over a six-month period followed by a two-week breathing apparatus course. You will also be required to attend weekly drill nights at your station. During this period payments will be received.
Although we do not currently have any vacancies for wholetime firefighters, we would like to thank you for taking the time to read this and invite you to visit our website from time to time for further updates.
