The Specialist Rescue Team (SRT) provides a specialist rescue operational response through enhanced water rescue, rope rescue and urban search and rescue (USAR) training and skills. The SRT has a number of vacancies and as a result NIFRS now wish to appoint a number of substantive Rescue Technicians in order to enable the Specialist Rescue Team to continue to provide business continuity for NIFRS.  Please be aware you must already be a substantive Wholetime Firefighter to apply for this role.

A reserve list will be created for 12 months should any additional vacancies arise after the initial intake this may also include secondments. In addition future promotion opportunities within SRT will be open to those who hold the relevant qualifications and accreditation aligned to the Rescue Technician role.
