Fire and Rescue NSW now recruiting!

Posted on 08 Nov 2018 (Featured)

Have you ever considered becoming a firefighter?

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) has launched its 2019 recruitment campaign, More Than Fire.

They are looking for fit and healthy men and women with a diverse range of skills and capabilities to join its ranks.

As the role is so much more than firefighting, FRNSW is looking for people who reflect the diversity, culture and skills of our community - many of whom may not have previously considered firefighting as a career option. Firefighters are prepared for anything, anytime and anywhere in the community. They protect the irreplaceable.

If you are interested in the role you are invited to submit an application or attend the general information session.

Firefighting could be just the career for you - It’s a unique and exciting way to make a difference in our community.

Applications for the 2019 recruitment campaign open from Monday, 5 November 2018 and close Monday, 19 November 2018.

You can also go to Facebook or Twitter: @FRNSW for regular updates on the recruitment campaign.
