Expression of Interest for Wholetime Inter Service Transfer

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service is a dynamic and forward looking organisation seeking expressions of interest from any Wholetime competent Firefighter, Crew or Watch Managers (currently employed by a UK Local Authority Fire Service on a Wholetime contract) who are interested in transferring to Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service and wish to be considered for any upcoming inter-service transfer (IST) processes once they open.

As our Inter-Service Transfer process is currently under review, we also welcome expression of interest forms from on-call Firefighters (currently employed by a UK Local Authority Fire Service).

Please Note: This is an expression of interest only. At this time, on-call Firefighters are still required to apply via our current Wholetime vacancies.

Eligibility to express your interest:

– You must be Wholetime or On-call competent & substantive Firefighter, Crew or Watch Manager

– Currently employed by a UK Local Authority Fire Service

– You must be eligible to live and work in the UK

– Have a full UK ‘Category B’ driving licence

– Have a basic swimming ability and water confidence that will enable you to work safely in water rescue situations (must be able to demonstrate if required)

– Be able to demonstrate reading, writing and numerical skills to meet the requirements of the role.

Please Note:

– All Wholetime applicants must be conditioned to a permanent wholetime duty system, working an average of 42 hours per week

– This is NOT an IST application form. By expressing your interest this will enable us to contact you as soon as a IST application process opens

– This is for substantive transfers only and is not a promotion process

For more information about Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service’s IST eligibility please contact the recruitment team via email at JoinUs@ManchesterFire.Gov.Uk
