We would encourage anyone who is interested to visit our website; www.yesyoucan.careers. If they click on the Wholetime Firefighter image they will be able to access a wealth of information about the role and the recruitment and selection process. We have a number of online recruitment events, where interested individuals can learn more about this role.
We particularly welcome applications from females and BME candidates as they are under-represented within our workforce. They must be aged 18 by the time our training course commences (January 2022 – dates to be confirmed), have a driving licence with no more than 3 points and live within our service area.
Community work is an essential aspect of Firefighting. Therefore applicants from across our service area who have a good understanding and a genuine passion to make a difference to public safety within our community are encouraged to apply.
We are holding the following events focused on these from our under-represented backgrounds. If possible, could you share the links to these events through your contacts and social media platforms. Please use these templates to raise awareness of this opportunity on your social media platforms.
