Diverse communities served by our diverse workforce

We respond to a wide range of incidents with our highly trained, highly skilled teams who have a wealth of training, experience and knowledge.  The communities we serve can be as diverse as the situations we tackle.

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is committed to ensuring that its workforce reflects the community we serve. At the present time this is not the case as women are under-represented within our operational service and the wider workforce does not reflect the ethnic diversity within our communities.

We are an equal opportunities employer and we are committed to putting equality, diversity and inclusion at the heart of everything we do. We welcome applications from all members of our community and encourage people from ethnic minority backgrounds, and members of the LGBTQ+ community to join us.

Although we require our Emergency Call Handlers – Firefighter (Control) to have pass a pre-employment medical check and have a good practical ability, having a disability should not prevent you from applying. We do have our Frequently Asked Questions which should be able to answer any questions that you may have regarding applicants with disabilities.
