Could you be “More Than Fire”? We’re Recruiting!

This New Year, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service is recruiting for full-time Firefighters.

Is it your ambition to say “I am a Firefighter”? Can you be more than the uniform, more than the badge?

To be a Firefighter you need to have great communication skills, be driven and committed, a problem solver…but most of all you need to be someone who cares deeply about making a difference in your community. If that sounds like you, then join us and be ‘More Than Fire’.

The role is exciting, challenging, varied and rewarding, where no two days are the same. Applications open on the 5th January 2022 and close on the 19th January 2022 via our Core HR e-recruitment system.

South Wales has changed considerably over the last few years and the role of Firefighter has adapted to reflect this, and to meet the demands from the local community. The modern Firefighter still fulfils the traditional duties of responding to fires and rescues e.g. road traffic collisions, chemical emergencies, flooding and other natural disasters. However, the modern Firefighter is much more than the reactive role, and also provides education and prevention advice and support.

At South Wales Fire and Rescue Service we have an aim of creating a diverse workforce which reflects and represents the communities we serve. We strongly believe in the benefits of having a diverse and inclusive workforce and are striving to secure applications from all sectors of our communities. Our core values revolve around doing the right thing, making a difference, acting with compassion and we also pride ourselves on our commitment to being an inclusive employer. We recognise that becoming a diverse and inclusive workforce is an ongoing journey, and we are continually striving to increase positive action efforts.

As part of our process you will need to demonstrate that you share our Core Values and are prepared to commit to the level of training and fitness required to meet the challenging demands of this important role.
