Applications Closed for 2013.
DFES recruits Trainee Firefighters usually on an annual basis, with successful applicants being considered for schools commencing within a 12 month period from the selection being finalised.
The 2014 Firefighter Recruitment campaign is likely to commence within the first half of 2014, however no dates have been confirmed. This is later than the previously advised dates.
On the right, there are links to a number of pages that you are encouraged to look at to ensure you understand the prerequisites, more about the role of a Firefighter, and to view the process undertaken for the 2013 Firefighter Recruitment process. The 2013 Firefighter Recruitment Information Package is comprehensive and provides lots of information. However, please note that DFES may change the order of the process, and the actual assessments in the future.
Please register your details to be kept updated on the latest information regarding the application process, requirements, and be first to know when we will be advertising.
Please note that DFES requires all applicants to obtain their manual non-synchromesh HR licence and hold a current Apply First Aid Certificate (competency HLTFA311A or equivalent) before they are eligible for consideration.
