Wholetime firefighter recruitment

In the spring of 2018, Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service will be recruiting new wholetime firefighters for the first time in several years.

We want to make sure we have the best people applying, and to help us find them we are holding a number of “Have a Go” taster sessions throughout the county.

If you are 18 years of age or older and are reasonably fit and healthy, come along to one of our events and find out about a career in the Fire and Rescue Service.

For further information about wholetime recruitment, you can email firerecruit2018@suffolk.gov.uk.
