New recruits 2018

Application dates announced

Avon Fire & Rescue Service (AF&RS) will be recruiting wholetime firefighters from mid-November

Aspiring firefighters will be able to register via the Yes You Can website for an eligibility screening from the 16th November.  

Following this initial eligibility screening, applicants will undergo several tests before being able to complete their online application form between the 11th and 19th December.

This application form is an opportunity for applicants to tell us about their skills and experience with examples and evidence to demonstrate how they meet our service values. 

The processes will combinate in 16 firefighters being selected for a training school in May.

There will also be a Facebook Live Q&A on Tuesday 06 November at 18:00, where a panel from the Service will answer questions on fitness, the application process and life as a firefighter.
