The vision of Nottingham Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) is to put safety at the heart of the community and make Nottinghamshire a safer place to live, work and visit. Currently the Service employs approximately 900 people working in a wide range of challenging, dynamic and rewarding roles.
Though Firefighting is only one element of the service NFRS provides, it is undoubtedly a very important one. The role of Firefighters is not only based around tackling fires, the role has developed and evolved greatly over the years.
They are required to attend:
- Road traffic collisions
- Air and rail crashes
- Chemical incidents
- Animal rescues
- Water rescues
- Rescues from height and much more.
In 2018 Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service will recruit for full-time Firefighters. As part of their commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant, NFRS are keen to invite members of the Armed Forces Community to consider a career in the Fire Service.
"We are proud to protect the diverse communities of Nottinghamshire and as such we aspire for our workforce to reflect our communities whom we serve, currently we are under-represented, particularly from a gender and ethnic background point of view so we would also welcome and encourage applicants from a more diverse group of people."
