Who can apply?

On-call firefighters come from every walk of life, including homemakers, shopkeepers, builders, farmers, office workers and directors of companies, together with people who are not currently employed.

What they all have in common is self-reliance, confidence, respect, enthusiasm, team spirit and a willingness to be ready for anything when they are alerted to an emergency.

On-call and wholetime firefighters are expected to meet the same entry standards and they receive the same training and development to enable them to work to common standards.

You can find out more about the role and current vacancies through these pages, but key requirements for applicants are:

Ideally, your travel time to your local fire station from home or work will be no more than five minutes – however, we will still consider applicants from further afield and would encourage an early conversation with the station management team to help us understand what cover you can offer and when.

Full training is provided on an on-going basis, therefore previous experience is not needed. There is a minimum requirement for 40 hours’ cover per week.  The on-call hours are based around people’s availability and other commitments, aligned to the requirements for operational cover at the station.

If you are looking to move into the Service area, you can still be considered for on-call employment with us, but will need to demonstrate your intent to move before your application can be completed.

We are committed to equality of opportunity and diversity in employment and welcome applications from all sectors of the community. We particularly welcome applications from women and those from an ethnic minority, as they are currently under-represented within the Service.

If you have what it takes, apply now!
