We are NOT currently recruiting for Whole Time Firefighters.

Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service is a highly trained, professional and disciplined service.

A career as a Firefighter is attractive to many women and men, in fact we receive hundreds of enquiries every year and therefore the selection process is very competitive. The Fire Service welcomes applications from under-represented minorities.
