On-call firefighters

We are still recruiting for on-call firefighters so, if you have what it takes, APPLY NOW!

During the coronavirus pandemic, we are still accepting applications but, due to social distancing, we are having to do some parts of the process differently. This will include online meetings rather than face-to-face and additional control measures for fitness testing. However, please don’t be put off by this, we will work with you to help your application progress as smoothly as possible.

On-call firefighters are paid professionals, who do the same work as their wholetime colleagues.

As a Service, we are reliant on on-call firefighters – 46 of our 50 fire stations have on-call sections, and most have only got on-call staff, so this duty system is vital for keeping our communities safe.

On-call firefighters are staff who make themselves available for emergency callouts depending on their other commitments. They are usually contracted for between 40 and 120 hours per week, but this can vary. Between them, each fire station team will provide cover for weekdays, evenings, nights and weekends.

Follow the menu links to find out more about being an on-call firefighter, the process of applying, and what’s expected of you if you succeed in your application.
