In preparation for recruitment later this year, come along to one of our taster days for:
- Recruitment information

- A chance to use firefighting equipment
- A try-out of the physical tests
- The opportunity to talk to some of our firefighters
This session is only open to those who identify as Black, Asian and minority ethnics, women or LGBT+ and takes place at:
As there are staggered start times throughout the morning, it is essential that you book your place in advance. To book:

Due to Covid 19, numbers will be restricted and extra safety measures will be in place.
SFRS is committed to being an inclusive employer and having a diverse workforce brings many benefits to the Service. The Service has a Positive Action Statement which supports this.
Positive action is legal under the Equality Act 2010, and where SFRS can show that they are under-represented by particular groups in the last 12 months. The taster sessions are being held for people from BAME (4%), LGBT+ (0.5%) backgrounds and Women (6.4%) as the Service is under-represented by these groups, figures in brackets are the percentages employed. For more information on the Equality Act 2010 click here. Positive action is specifically covered in Section 158.
Attendance at a taster session does NOT guarantee any progression into the recruitment process which will take place later in the year.
