Application process opens today at Suffolk Fire and Rescue
In the spring of 2018, Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service will be recruiting new wholetime firefighters for the first time in several years.
The application process opened today, Thursday 1 March and closes on Thursday 15 March 2018. Anyone interested in applying is urged to respond quickly though, as the application process will close early if 1500 applications are received.
Cllr Matthew Hicks, Suffolk County Council’s cabinet member for Environment, Public Protection and Broadband, said: “The role of a firefighter has changed significantly over the years and it is far more diverse than people might expect. From conducting home safety checks, to talking to people about fire prevention, carrying out water rescues and dealing with road traffic collisions. It is a hugely rewarding role that encompasses a great breadth of work including of course putting out fires.
“If you think you might be suitable for the role and would like to join a team that puts the community first, I would really encourage you to apply.”
