Jobs and Careers

Our Workforce

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service prides itself on the high standard of service it provides to the people of Derbyshire. There are many different career opportunities. Every role has an important part to play in meeting the vision of Making Derbyshire Safer.

Equality & Diversity

enei_Member_logo_130x130.gifDerbyshire Fire & Rescue Service recognise that equality, diversity and inclusion run through every aspect of the Service. We aim to ensure that everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

We will therefore ensure that no service user, employee or job applicant is unfairly discriminated against on the grounds of their gender or gender identity, race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status, pregnancy, caring responsibilities or employment status.

We will measure and report on the effectiveness of our service delivery and employee policies and processes in relation to these principles. This information will be used to inform future policy and to enhance organisational processes.

To support our equality and diversity work, the Service collects data on applicants. However, this personal data does not form part of the recruitment process and is not seen by any member of the recruitment panel. In all cases, your ability to perform the job is the primary consideration in a selection decision.

As a Disability Confident employer, we encourage applications from people with a disability. Please let us know if you need any reasonable adjustments to ensure a fair interview process. If you are offered a job with Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service you will have an opportunity to discuss whether you need any reasonable adjustments at work.
