Firefighter job opportunities


Your community needs you

South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue is pleased to announce that the recruitment process for Firefighters is now open.

Our Firefighter’s come from a range of backgrounds, reflecting the diverse communities they serve. We are committed to integrating equality into all aspects of our work and therefore encourage applications from women and members of the BME communities as these groups are currently underrepresented.

To inform applicants of the career opportunities within South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue we are holding a number of awareness sessions to provide more information about the role of a Firefighter, the recruitment process and the standards required. The sessions will be held at various locations throughout South Yorkshire at times to suit everyone; if you are able to attend you might find that becoming a Firefighter could be the career you are looking for.

A session will be held at Forum House, Spital Hill on Thursday 22nd November 2007, 2pm – 4pm.

To succeed as a Firefighter you need to be 18 years old or over at the time of training, physically fit, able to demonstrate good verbal and numerical skills and be a strong communicator.

If you meet these qualities and wish to earn over £27,000 per annum once qualified with a final salary pension scheme please download an application pack at, or email

If you are unable to access the pack via email or internet, we will send you a pack, However we would ask you to consider the environment before making this request to our recruitment team on 0114 253 2233.
