Fire­fighter roles are up for grabs

Loughborough Echo - - LETTERS -

LE­ICES­TER­SHIRE Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice has opened up its re­cruit­ment web­site for ap­pli­ca­tions for on-call fire­fighter roles.

They are re­cruit­ing on-call fire­fight­ers at a num­ber of on-call sta­tions across the county.

On-call fire­fight­ers must live and/or work within a set travel time from their fire and res­cue sta­tion.

Dead­line for sub­mit­ting an ap­pli­ca­tion is Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 30. There are a num­ber of es­sen­tial re­quire­ments you will need to meet in or­der to be con­sid­ered for an on-call fire­fighter role, and these can be found by vis­it­ing le­ices­ter­shire-fire.gov.uk/on-call

Rick Tay­lor, Chief Fire and Res­cue Of­fi­cer, said: “On-call fire­fight­ers play a vi­tal role at Le­ices­ter­shire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice and they help us pro­vide the very best ser­vice to the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties we serve. We hope to en­cour­age mem­bers of our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties to come for­ward, find out more about be­ing an on-call fire­fighter and ul­ti­mately ap­ply for a role.

“This is a real op­por­tu­nity for mem­bers of our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties look­ing for a re­ward­ing job where they are also giv­ing some­thing back to their lo­cal com­mu­nity.”
