Female Focused Have a Go event
June 29, 2019 @ 10:00 – 16:00
RFBRS has announced a series of Have a Go events aimed at encouraging more women to consider a career as a firefighter.
Although women make up a significant proportion of support and Control roles, they are under-represented in operational roles and RBFRS would like more women to apply so that its workforce can better reflect the community they serve.
The events will be run at Whitley Wood Training Centre in April, May and June and will provide a range of fire service activities for potential applicants to take part in.
The events will include a tour of the fire station and an opportunity to try physical and written tests similar to those they would need to perform during recruitment and training. Our firefighters and fitness advisors will also all be on hand to offer advice and support.
It is hoped that by providing an overview of the recruitment process and support, more women will consider applying to become either wholetime or on-call firefighters. Although the recruitment window is not currently open for wholetime firefighters, it is expected that in the coming months there will be opportunities to apply for the role.
