Full-time firefighter

Our firefighters have one of the most respected jobs within the community - responding to incidents, preventing them from happening and protecting people and property within the Humberside area. 

Full-time Firefighter

To be a Firefighter requires special skills and qualities, not only do you need effective communication skills to support the public at safety events and in their homes, you will also possess exceptional team working and people skills for use at operational incidents and other environments.

The role of the Fire and Rescue Service has changed incredibly in the last few years with the role of the Fire Fighter developing and evolving. If you are a creative problem solver who can respond to a changing set of varied circumstances, in a thoughtful and conscientious way, then you might want to consider us for your future career. We deal with everything from environmental issues like floods and storms to attending an increasing number of health related incidents.  We therefore expect our Firefighters to be even more adaptable and creative than ever before. You will need to be a good listener and possess excellent communication skills.

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service is committed to equality and diversity at work.  We positively welcome applications from women and black and minority ethnic people who are under-represented in our Service.
