Our firefighter taster sessions will allow you to take a tour of your potential place of work, try out some of the fitness tests and speak to our employees about working for us.
These sessions do not form part of the assessment process, they provide information only to assist you. Don’t worry if you cannot get booked on to a session, we will continue to release dates throughout the process and as they do not form part of the process, they are not mandatory to attend.
All information provided to candidates at the sessions will be available on our website soon.
You can choose to visit any fire service premises, regardless of which service you would like to work for and you will not be held to taking a position at that station.
Some of the tests require physical activity so please dress appropriately (gym attire/trainers/water bottle).
