We are currently not recruiting for retained firefighters.
However you can submit an application form at any time and it will be placed on hold until your station of choice next recruits.
Retained firefighters often have another job and will provide on-call cover from home or their place of work. They respond to emergencies when their pager alerts them, so must live or work within five minutes travel time from the station.
We generally require retained firefighters to give between 60-120 hours per week. Patterns and hours of cover vary from station to station. Our biggest requirement is for day time cover Monday-Friday 0600-1800 and 24 hours across Saturday and Sunday.
Please return both the application form and medical declaration in order for your application to be considered.
IT IS ESSENTIAL ALL APPLICANTS HAVE TO ATTEND THEIR STATIONS DRILL NIGHT (see below) TO DISCUSS SUITABLE HOURS OF COVER AND DISTANCE TO STATION UPON COMPLETING AN APPLICATION.
