The timeline of events is scheduled below:
Whole-time Firefighter Recruitment â€“ Suffolk Fire and Rescue
8th August sees the launch of a whole-time firefighter recruitment campaign â€“ the first in Suffolk since 2006.
We are holding a number of sessions that are aimed at raising awareness of what the job entails, and breaking down any perceived barriers to entry to Suffolk Fire and Rescue.
All sessions will include workshops to explain and explore the application process, the physical tests, and the personal qualities and attributes necessary to become a firefighter. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers, and discussion with current fire staff. There will also be a chance to see some of the equipment used in the tests.
We welcome applications from all sections of the community. We particularly want to encourage applications from under-represented groups, and so are launching with two positive action sessions:
Saturday 8th August, Colchester Road Fire Station, Ipswich
However, all are welcome to attend on the day.
There will be three further sessions around the county, aimed at the wider population of Suffolk:
To book your place, please email [email protected], stating your name and which session you would like to attend.
NB â€“ the application process will open in mid September. Details to be published on the Suffolk Fire & Rescue Service website.
Hope the above helps ;)
