Cheshire Fire Service

There are a number of on-call firefighter vacancies at Cheshire Fire Service, including Nantwich an other stations.

An on-call/part-time firefighter is a person who is ‘on call’ to respond to a range of emergencies.

They are doing everyday jobs (for example, shop workers, office workers, mechanics, etc) until the call comes, then they become professional firefighters.

They may be ‘part-time’, but they are trained and capable people in the front line, saving lives.

On-call/part-time firefighters are well paid for their services, they receive thorough training plus all there is to know about emergency situations.

On-call/part-time firefighters do not just fight fires.

As an on-call/part-time firefighter you would be involved in a wide variety of situations which can include incidents ranging from floods, road accidents and chemical spills to retrieving pets from awkward situations.

On average, you could be called out two or three times a week for a couple of hours. If you can’t be available all of the time it’s not a problem. The Service is particularly keen to hear from people who are available during weekdays.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service has vacancies for on-call/part-time men and women Firefighters. If you live or work in rural communities in Cheshire and have the time and commitment to participate in this essential emergency service, please read on.

These roles are certainly demanding but in return offer the chance to make a real contribution in this vital service. They also provide the opportunity of forming close working relationships with members of the team. Consequently, there is an active social scene within the Service and, whilst dealing with emergencies takes priority, attending community events, acting as an ambassador for the Service, are additional aspects of the job.
