Grampian Fire & Rescue

Part-Time Firefighters

Application Process
We are actively recruiting for retained stations - Do you want to be a Firefighter?

Becoming a Part-Time Firefighter
Part-time firefighters respond to emergencies from home or work. While they are 'on-call' they carry a pager and must be able to get to the fire station within a set time limit.

They are fully trained to respond to all sorts of emergencies, from fires to traffic accidents to floods and chemical spills.

All part-time firefighters work as part of close and supportive teams. They may respond to a call as a single crew, or work alongside their colleagues in the wholetime service at a major incident.

Essential Requirements
There are some essential requirements you must meet before an application to work as a firefighter will be continued.

Grampian Fire and Rescue Service is committed to promoting firefighting as a career to all sections of the community. At present, women and members of ethnic minority communities are under-represented in our workforce and we would particularly welcome applications from members of these groups.

After recruitment, serving firefighters are required to treat all their colleagues, regardless of gender, sexual orientation or racial background, with dignity and respect. Opportunities for further training and development within the Service are open to all staff regardless of gender of background.

Career Development
All firefighters start in the rank of firefighter and everyone has an equal chance of promotion.

New recruits are required to complete the 'Competency to Ride' training in order to become fully operational. They are restricted to attending some incidents until such time as they that attended a four day initial course and a four day breathing apparatus course. Until such time as the above courses have been completed to a satisfactory standard, recruits are unable to carry out ladder climbing, enter buildings on fire, except chimney fires, or use breathing apparatus.
