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

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

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

All Fire and Rescue Service posts are now exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, as the nature of the job falls within the type of work excluded from the Act by the 1975 Exception Amendment. This means you must declare on your application form all cautions or convictions, even if they are ‘spent’ under the provisions of the Act unless it is a protected or filtered offence.

A criminal record may not automatically bar you from appointment (it may in some cases). The Service will consider whether the conviction or caution makes you unsuitable for appointment. Failure to declare a conviction or caution may disqualify you from appointment or result in summary dismissal if the discrepancy comes to light, and will be taken into consideration on our positive disclosure risk assessment process.

Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found on the Ministry of Justice website.

Details of the recruitment process can be found here.

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.
