‘Have a go days’ for under represented groups

We will soon be opening recruitment for wholetime firefighters and are holding some taster days at our training centre in January so that people from groups currently under represented amongst our frontline staff can find out more about a career in the fire service.

We will always recruit the best people for the job. But we also want to ensure our workforce accurately represents the communities we serve, so these days are about providing information to potential women, black and minority ethnic and LGBT applicants so that they can make an informed career decision.

If you would like to register your interest in one of the days on either Wednesday 4 January (other under represented groups, including women) or Saturday 14 January (women only) please email
