Wholetime Firefighter Recruitment 2017/18

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service welcomes its newest recruits from our recent campaign which attracted 4373 applications.  104 trainees began their new careers as firefighters in April 2018 undertaking the Firefighter Foundation Programme, before taking up post in fire stations across Scotland.  A further 228 candidates remain within the Holding Pool for consideration for future opportunities.

We have prepared a Wholetime Firefighter Recruitment & Selection Process Guidance Note that aims to provide some information and guidance to potential applicants to help them prepare for future campaigns.

Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to confirm when we will be recruiting again for Wholetime Firefighters.  When details have been confirmed, information will be provided on our website and posted on social media.  You can see all our current vacancies and register to receive job alerts to keep you updated on any recruitment campaigns we run.

Please note when we are recruiting, applications can be made online only.
