Do you have what we need?

Click here to see how much you know about the role.

 The following list of questions has been put together to help you decide whether you would like to apply for this job and whether it would be suitable to you.

Ask yourself the following…

If you were able to answer ‘Yes’ to all the above, then we have your next career ready and waiting.

If you have responded with a ‘No’ to some questions, we strongly suggest you think seriously about whether being a Firefighter (Control) is right for you.

Applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria to be able to apply for the role of Firefighter (Control):

As well as the above criteria, candidates should be aware that they will need to meet the required fitness standards, medical health check and eyesight standards for entry.

 *The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 gives you the right not to disclose details of offences which are seen as ‘spent’. However you are required to declare any convictions for offences that are not ‘spent’. If you are unsure about whether a conviction is spent please refer to the website www.gov.uk – New Guidance on the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974

A criminal record may not automatically bar you from appointment (it may in some cases). The Service will consider whether the conviction makes you unsuitable for appointment. Failure to declare a conviction, caution or bind-over may disqualify you from appointment or result in summary dismissal if the discrepancy comes to light.

Below is an outline of the timescales we are working to; more detailed information can be found under Recruitment process. 

You will be emailed regularly throughout the process therefore it is essential that candidates check their junk email on a daily basis throughout the process.
