The following stages form the final selection process for the Full-Time firefighter recruitment process.

Pre-employment checks

You will be required to:

  • Complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) form (formerly known as a criminal record check)
  • Provide a copy of your driving license
  • Provide verification of your National Insurance number
  • Provide details of two referees
  • Bring documents to show that you have the right to work in the UK


Interviews will consist of four panels made up of two interviewers per panel and interview questions will be based around our Ethical Principles and Behaviours, find out more here.

Making the final selection

The top candidates from the interview process will then be invited to undertake a medical and fitness test.


Those invited for a medical will be required to complete a pre-employment medical form and can expect to undertake the following tests:

  • Eye sight
  • Drugs and alcohol

Fitness test

The gas analysis test accurately determines your aerobic fitness and involves cycling on a stationary bike.

Initial training

Initial training will consist of a training course spanning several weeks. Further details of the training period will be released before Full-Time firefighter recruitment begins.

The recruit training will be located at our Training School in Immingham – Immingham West Fire Station, Rosper Road, South Killingholme, Immingham DN40 3DU

A ceremonial Passing out Parade will then be held at the end of the course where family and friends can be invited and recruits can show off their new found skills and competencies.

Full-Time fire station allocation

New recruits will be given their Full-Time Station allocation, which could be anywhere within the Humberside boundary and not necessarily close to their home address. An allocation of annual leave will be planned in prior to joining the station and watch.
