Apprentice Firefighter registration is CLOSED

We are recruiting Apprentice Firefighters in December 2021 - be part of our positive action events

As a Service, we strive to be fully inclusive, where individuals can excel whilst being who they really are. We aim to create a level playing field in order to attract and retain a diverse workforce which is representative of our local communities. 

Positive action events allow us to do this and support individuals in the lead up to the recruitment process.

Our positive action programme is aimed at people from underrepresented groups aspiring to be firefighters.  The Programme is a free and the events we have planned are designed for people who dream of being a firefighter, but who need some help and advice to take the next steps. In these sessions you’ll gain a greater understanding of what it means to be a firefighter, be better prepared for selection tests and have the confidence to apply for the role of a firefighter. 

The programme is open to everyone however we specifically invite interested people who are female, people from ethnic minority groups, LGBTQI+ people, neurodiverse people and persons with disabilities.

Registration closes on 1 December 2021

Please be aware, these events are specific positive action events, to enable us to encourage people from groups that are currently underrepresented in the sector to apply.

Attendance at the events in no way gives any advantage in the recruitment process only awareness and further support.  

Further information on the programme and recruitment process can be found here in the Apprenticeship Information Pack.
