Taster sessions

We’re hosting taster sessions throughout October 2019 where you can speak to firefighters about their role and try out some of the physical tests included in the selection process.

Although it’s not essential, candidates who have attended a taster session often perform better during the application process.

Book your place at a taster session.


Openings for uniformed and non-uniformed staff are posted here and on
