Firefighter Taster Days 

The communities served by South Wales Fire and Rescue Service (SWFRS) are very diverse and here at SWFRS we would like to make our workforce more diverse too.

As part of the lead up to our Wholetime Recruitment campaign running in December 2016 we are about to run “Firefighter Taster sessions” for groups who are currently
under-represented within our service e.g females, individuals from different faiths and from Black, Asian and Multi-Ethnic communities and individuals who identify as LGB and/or T.

During these events we will be conducting different sessions including:

• Who South Wales Fire and Rescue Service is and what we do; including more information on the role of the Firefighter.
• A showcase of our physical assessments which we will encourage you to take part in if you so wish.
• A presentation on recruitment and the application process.
• A Question and answer session with a current Firefighter.

If you would like to attend any of these events we are now taking bookings for morning and afternoon sessions on the following dates:

Saturday 12th November 2016
Saturday 26th November 2016

If you are interested in signing up to these events please contact us by phoning 01443 232183 between 9am and 4:30pm or by emailing
