Looking for a new year challenge?

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service is opening the recruitment process for Wholetime Firefighters in the new year, seeking applications from Derbyshire residents who want an extraordinary and rewarding career in the fire service.

Recruitment will run for two weeks from Monday 3 January 2022 at 09:00 hours, and closing at midday on the 17 January 2022.

Chief Fire Officer/Chief Executive Gavin Tomlinson said: “This is an exciting opportunity for the people of Derbyshire to join a high performing and excellent fire and rescue service.

“The role of a modern Firefighter is extremely varied. Firefighters not only train to respond to a diverse range of incidents from fires, road traffic collisions and specialist rescues - such as large animal rescues and water rescue incidents - but they also spend a growing amount of time engaging with and educating our communities to help prevent emergency incidents occurring.”

Interested applicants can access full details relating to the recruitment process, including entry requirements, recruitment schedule and frequently asked questions on our website.

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service is also accepting transfer applications from competent Wholetime Firefighters who are currently working for a UK Fire and Rescue Service, and are committed to pursuing a career within Derbyshire, at a proven forward-thinking fire and rescue service.
