Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service - Recruitment of Wholetime Firefighters starts June 1st

Recruitment for wholetime firefighters starts on June 1, 2017.
Keep an eye on our social media and website for recruitment updates, coming soon! As of June 1, applications can be submitted via the Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service page of the www.wmjobs.co.uk(opens in a new window) website. We welcome applications from all parts of our community.
The Role
There is much more to the role of firefighter than the common perception of riding in a fire appliance and extinguishing house fires. We strongly believe that prevention is better than cure and our firefighters are expected to take a significant role in community safety and education as part of their day-to-day duties.
To apply you must be 18 years old or over and hold a full driving license. We welcome applications from outside of Staffordshire and transfers from other fire and rescue services.
Here is a summary of some of the day-to-day duties of a wholetime firefighter:
  • Inform and educate your community to improve awareness of safety matters
  • Save and preserve endangered life and provide treatment to casualties
  • Contribute to the fire safety solutions to minimise risks to the community
  • Resolve operational incidents
  • Protect the environment from the effects of hazardous materials
  • Drive, manoeuvre and de-ploy vehicles
