Event description

Description

We're recruiting wholetime firefighters across the Service this autumn and are holding several ‘Have A Go’ days prior to applications opening. These will be taking place over the coming weeks to give people an insight into what the role of a firefighter entails, as well as the required strength, fitness and aptitude levels. It will also give you the chance to find out more information on how rewarding a career in the fire and rescue service is, and what paths of progression there are.

The event is free, and there is no obligation to apply to be a wholetime firefighter if you attend, but we'd love it if you do! Equally, you do not have to attend a Have A Go day to be eligible to apply; it simply gives you an understanding of the job-related tests you will need to successfully complete upon application, and allows you to ask any questions you may have.

Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a pair of thick socks with you to make sure your boots are as comfortable as possible. All other equipment and clothing will be provided. During the Have A Go session you’ll be expected to carry out several physical activities which will include the bleep test and other fire ground simulations in full fire kit. Please ensure you bring a water bottle and trainers with you.

Please arrive 30 minutes before your session start time to allow for registration and fitting of kit for the job-related tests.

Due to the limited number of spaces and popularity on these sessions, please only book one place. If you cannot make your session, please cancel your order by going to www.eventbrite.co.uk - this will allow someone else to take your place.

Please note there is no parking at Central Fire and Rescue Station.
