Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue recruitment: Have a go

If you've ever considered becoming a firefighter, Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue is looking to recruit some extraordinary people in 2021.

Firefighters help people in their hour of need, and do their utmost to prevent harm, and to protect Gloucestershire communities and businesses.

To help you decide if the Fire Service is the place for you, Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service (GFRS) will be running a range of workshops, have a go sessions and fitness support groups to help you find that career you've always been looking for.

They will guide you towards discovering what the job entails, explain the application process and support you in your first steps towards a rewarding and fulfilling career.

These sessions will be delivered by GFRS's dedicated recruitment team at a range of venues across the county between 4th and 14th January. 

GFRS will always recruit based on the merit of the application and performance in the selection process. However, the service is particularly encouraging applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, people that identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender plus (LGBT+) and women, as they are currently under-represented within Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service.

For full details of the sessions and to book a place, go to https://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/glosfire/recruitment/engagement-session-booking-page-dec-2020/ 

GFRS anticipates these sessions will fill up very quickly, so please register your interest early.
