Apprenticeship at Avon Fire and Rescue Service

Avon Fire and Rescue Service are looking to recruit 6 apprentices to join their service in September 2020, to complete a 2 year apprenticeship which will result in successful candidates completing a Level 3 qualification in Operational Firefighting.

Applicants will need to be at least 17 when training school commences (September 2020) and will need to be living within our Service area from the campaign launch date.

This apprenticeship opportunity will provide the successful candidate with a wide range of skills and knowledge in regards to community safety and mitigating risks, prevention awareness and the appropriate methods of resolving fire and rescue emergency incidents.  They will gain technical knowledge in regards to fire science and behaviour ventilation whilst building valuable attributes such as time management, working collaboratively, situational awareness and remaining calm under pressure.
They will also have an opportunity to gain an insight towards the various departments of Avon Fire and Rescue Service such as our Technical Fire Safety department, Community Partnership department and Control.
The role is currently a two year fixed term appointment however there may be the possibility of permanency or extension which will be discussed with the successful candidate at a later date.

If you are aware of any potential interested individuals within your contacts then please can I ask you to make them aware of this upcoming opportunity.
At present, details are being finalised however this campaign is set to launch around April 2020 and further details will be publicised on our website in due course.
