Event description

Description

Avon Fire & Rescue Service (AF&RS) is encouraging people to consider a new career this winter when it opens applications for wholetime firefighters in November.

Aspiring firefighters will be able to start the application process from mid-November as the Service looks for the brightest and best to take part in a training school in 2019.

Under the campaign slogan ‘Yes You Can’, AF&RS will be accepting applications from residents within our Service boundary area which covers Bristol and parts of BANES, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. More information on our Service area can be found on the Yes You Can website.

During the campaign, the Service will be encouraging applications from groups currently under-represented within its workforce, particularly women and people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.

Ahead of the opening of applications, AF&RS is hosting a 'try before you apply' recruitment day where you can find out everything you need to know about the process and what it takes to be a firefighter, from fitness, practical assessments and mini-conferences.

The venue opens from 09:30-16:00 and to take full advantage you will need to book a ticket to one of the mini-conference events. You can then either browse around the market hall or take advantage of one of the many workshops:

  • Fitness Workshop
  • Practical Assessment Workshop
  • Application Workshops
  • One-to-one meetings with HR

Tickets on the day are limited, so please return any unwanted tickets as soon as possible.
