Wholetime recruitment

We are currently putting arrangements in place to run a Wholetime Recruitment Process in Autumn 2024. Please continue to monitor our website and social media where this process and any other future recruitment processes will be advertised. You may like to sign up for ‘Operational’ job alerts here.

There’s a huge amount of helpful information amongst these pages  to support you with preparing for and going through our recruitment process to become a wholetime firefighter. You might also find it helpful to work through our six recruitment guides. If you are female, from an ethnic minority background, identify as LGBTQIA+ or a blend of these characteristics, check out our Buddy Scheme here.  

Below is an example of what a process might look like. More detailed information can be found under Recruitment process.

Code of Ethics – Please be aware that candidates’ attitudes and behaviours are assessed throughout the process in line with our values and Code of Ethics which can be found here (link to https://www.dwfire.org.uk/working-for-us/values-and-behaviours/).
