Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service is inviting people to apply to become wholetime firefighters.

From Monday, 15 July, the Service will be recruiting for wholetime firefighters to join the team.

The role of a firefighter is varied and as well as responding to a range of incidents, it includes providing fire safety advice and engaging with local communities, through safety advice events, education activities and campaigns.

Staff from across the Service are taking part in a brand-new campaign, aimed at giving prospective firefighters real insight into what it takes to work for a modern fire and rescue service, highlighting the key role they play in their community.

#OneTeamForBerkshire will feature members of the team, telling their stories of what it’s like to work at Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service. These real-life stories will give behind the scenes insight and showcase what it takes to be a wholetime firefighter in Berkshire.

There isn’t one stereotypical firefighter and RFBRS welcomes people of all background to apply. The wider #OneTeamForBerkshire campaign will highlight the diversity of both people and roles within the Service, all with the shared goal of serving the people of Royal Berkshire.
