I started my career with Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service as a firefighter at Hereford Fire Station in 1999. Since then, I have worked in a number of operational and support roles across different departments, the most recent being head of Operational Logistics before taking up my role as Assistant Director for Response in 2021.

What makes HWFRS a great place to work?

What makes Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service a great place to work is the people and their shared commitment to provide the communities of Herefordshire and Worcestershire with the best possible service. The entire workforce brings a huge mix of backgrounds, experiences and skills which allows for a greater development of our core services to the public.
