A job to be proud of: could you be a firefighter?

We will be running a number of taster sessions to give an insight into a potential career as a firefighter. The sessions are aimed at people who have no experience of the firefighter role, to support our next wholetime recruitment campaign launching in the spring.

We particularly welcome individuals from groups that are currently under represented in our Service. At present, this includes women and people from black and ethnic minority backgrounds. Therefore, although the sessions are open to all, we will give priority to individuals from these groups. This approach is an example of ‘positive action’, which is a legally acceptable way of encouraging and increasing the number of applications for employment from those in under-represented groups.
