As part of your application to become a firefighter, you will be asked to:
- Attend a meeting at your fire station – here you will meet the local manager(s) to discuss key aspects of your application, including your availability to be on-call; your distance from the station; what the role of a firefighter entails; and the commitment and impact involved in being on-call.
- Attend a 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 interview.
