On-Call Firefighter Expression of Interest

We recruit on-call firefighters throughout the year and across the county. On-Call firefighters provide an efficient and effective service that gives emergency cover to more than 90% of the United Kingdom. They do the same job as full-time firefighters, however instead of being based at a fire station they are ‘On-Call’ from work (employer’s consent required) and/or at home.

On-Call firefighter must:

  • Live or work within a reasonable distance (5 to 8 minutes travelling time) of the On-Call station that has vacancies
  • On-Call Firefighters who are planning on responding to incidents whilst at their place of work, must have permission from their employer
  • Be at least 18 years of age at point of application
  • Be physically fit

You will receive an email acknowledging receipt of your interest,and a member of the recruitment team will then be in touch with you when an opportunity becomes available at your nearest station that also suits your availability. The Service holds details for interest purposes only, the initial stage is not a formal application. For more information and support, please contact firehrrecruitment@northants.police.uk
