Step Four: Interview

Candidates who successfully complete both the written and physical tests will be invited to interview.

The main aim of the interview is to find out about you and why you want to be a firefighter. Additionally, the interview will ask you to gather examples of when and how you have used skills that are important for potential firefighters. You should answer based on your personal experience and apply relevant examples. 

Guidance on the interview is available in the practice booklet below and we have also shared the Personal Qualities and Attributes (PQA) recognised of a Firefighter.
