Date: 30th September, 2020

A new wholetime firefighter recruitment to Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service will open at 10am on Monday 5 October, with applications closing at midnight on Friday 9 October.

Area Manager Seth Why said: “Nationally, the fire and rescue service is 95% male and 96% white, so we’ve been working hard to reach people who might otherwise not have considered us as an employer.
