ON CALL MIGRATION TO WHOLETIME FIREFIGHTER OPPORTUNITIES

As part of the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service’s overarching talent management strategy the Service are currently recruiting a number of wholetime firefighters to maintain appropriate staffing levels and skills across the Service.

The Service recognises and greatly values the enthusiasm and commitment that on call firefighters bring, and is therefore inviting applications from on call staff both from Cheshire and other Services, who would like to migrate to a wholetime position.

The Service is particularly interested in applicants who hold an LGV licence and EFAD qualification, or who would be committed to undertaking these qualifications in the near future.

It is recognised that On Call Firefighters who wish to apply for a wholetime role may be at various stages of their journey to competency, but are currently displaying the fantastic qualities and attributes required to be a competent firefighter. Therefore, we are inviting applicants who have completed point 8 of the ‘On-Call Journey to competency’ up to and including full competency (internal applicants). External applicants should have completed all the initial training courses as required by their Service.

Please note, these wholetime opportunities are for firefighter positions only, regardless of their current on-call role.

The selection process will comprise of:

  • Completion of a competency based application form with management support.

Closing date for completed application forms: 1700 hours, 30th May 2022.

Please note that external applicants will be required to submit a portfolio of evidence which will form part of the assessment process.

  • A practical assessment and interview:

Practical assessments will take place week commencing 27th June 2022

Interviews will take place weeks commencing 4th and 11th July 2022.
