Retained (Part Time)/ On Call Firefighter Recruitment

Retained (Part Time)/ On Call Firefighter Recruitment

Retained/ On Call firefighters are professional firefighters trained by North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue, but they work on a part time basis. Rather than being based at a Fire Station, retained firefighters provide on-call cover from home or their place of work. They respond to emergencies when their pager alerts them so must work or live four minutes travel time from the station.

We are currently recruiting for Retained (part-time)/ On Call Firefighters at some of our retained stations. We are particularly keen to recruit people who can primarily provide daytime and weekend cover (6am-6pm or parts of). If you are interested in applying for a station that is currently recruiting please download the Information and Application Pack below.

If you require more information about these vacancies or about completing the application pack please contact the Recruitment Team on 01609 788563 / 788533.
