We are actively seeking new trainee firefighters, helping us to continue our commitment to keep people across the Humber region safe.

Firefighters in a line parade

If you've applied before, please note that there have been updates to the application process. Read the following details carefully.

What is different this time?

Previously, interested individuals submitted an application form when the recruitment window opened. However, this time, applicants are required to attend an in-person Recruitment Awareness Day event to receive a link for the application form. At these events you’ll find out more about what our firefighters do, the application process and try for yourself parts of the physical tests.

There will be further information on the development programme our trainee firefighters complete before they can progress to Crew Manager and beyond. As well as the other benefits of working for us, such as our policies that support you at key times in your life, access to The Fire Fighters Charity and other resources such as our Employee Assistance Programme and Sports and Welfare.

You must attend a Recruitment Awareness Day event if you want to apply and only need to attend one event. Complete our registration form for a Recruitment Awareness Days can be found below.

During the Recruitment Awareness Day, you will have opportunity to apply for the first stage of the application process.

You should read the Candidate Pack which is available on our careers area of the website. This has information about the process and eligibility requirements.

We understand that emergencies occur, but we appreciate courtesy. If you can't attend, please inform us in advance. If you don't show up without notice, it may affect your future participation in similar events. We value your commitment and communication.

2. What should I wear, and what should I bring with me:

Please come in appropriate clothes so you can easily move about in the ‘have a go’ parts, please be aware that you will be outside for most of the session and there are no changing facilities.
