Stage 1 Application Form and Information Meeting
The application form is available as a paper copy which can be downloaded from the bottom of this page, or by contacting the Recruitment Team on 0800 3580 204 to request a form to be posted/emailed to you.
To complete the form the following information will be required:
- Qualifications in Maths and English - these are not essential, but Level 2 or above will exempt you from the written tests;
- Your work/ academic history for the last three years; and
- Contact details for two referees
Once your application form has been received, it is forwarded to the relevant station for their consideration. The station will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time for you to attend an Information Meeting.
The Information Meeting is an informal discussion to explain the role of an on-call firefighter and the commitment involved. It is your opportunity to ask any questions that you may have - these could be about the selection process, the training involved and how the role of a firefighter will fit in to your life!
The meeting is also an opportunity to discuss the Availability Agreement which is contained in the Application Form. This Availability Agreement is your commitment to the cover that you are able to provide as a firefighter.
If you have your Level 2 (or above) Qualification in Maths and/or English, you’ll be asked to take your original certificate/s along to the meeting with you.
