Around 30 prospective firefighters attended the first positive action taster session at Peaks Lane Fire Station, Grimsby on Tuesday 9 August.
Staff were on hand to welcome those from under-represented groups, mainly women and those from BME backgrounds, and gave opportunities to talk about the recruitment process, the changing face of the fire service and get their hands on some of the equipment involved in the role.
The session ran from 2.00pm until 8.00pm and those interested in learning more about the Fire Service and its forthcoming full-time recruitment can DROP IN anytime during the afternoon or evening.
There were no assessments or scoring - simply a drop in session without any formalities to see whether a career in the Fire Service was something which the attendees wanted to pursue.
The next session is at Humberside Fire Service Headquarters on Summergroves Way, Hull on Saturday 13 August. Pop in anytime from 10.00am until 4.00pm.
The online application window opens at noon on 1 September 2016.
