During the coronavirus pandemic, we are abiding by Government guidance around social distancing. As such, we are having to do some parts of the application process differently, including meeting online rather than face-to-face.
As part of your application to become a firefighter, you will be asked to:
- Attend a video meeting with the manager(s) at your fire station – here you will discuss key aspects of your application, including your availability to be on-call; where you live and/or work in relation to the station; what the role of a firefighter entails; and the commitment and impact involved in being on-call.
- Attend an online formal interview with Service representatives where you will be asked about your understanding of the Service and the experience, skills and behaviours that you could bring to the role.
Some of the questions will refer to our RESPECT behavioural framework, so it’s a good idea for you to familiarise yourself with that before attending the interview.
