They want to hear from people who are keen to work in a team environment and who would like to earn an additional income of around £5000 each year.

Being an on-call firefighter is an exciting and demanding role that allows people to make a real difference to their community and help to save lives. On-call firefighters get the same level of training as a full time firefighter to help them to operate in frontline situations.

Firefighters don’t just fight fires – attending community events and acting as ambassadors is also an important part of the role. And it’s is not a voluntary position, on-call firefighters are paid well for the work they do.

Paul Hancock, Cheshire Fire and Rescue’s Chief Fire Officer, said:
“Working with the fire and rescue service is a thoroughly rewarding experience.
It gives individuals the opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds and meet people in the community as well as responding to emergency incidents within Cheshire.”

On-call firefighters come from all walks of life, including shopkeepers, stay at home mums, builders, plumbers, farmers, secretaries, company directors, and people who may not currently be employed, and they work alongside their wholetime (full-time) colleagues.

Alex Waller, Head of Service Delivery, added:
“People who apply must be able to respond quickly to the fire station, have a real wish to support their local community, have an enthusiasm and willingness to work in a team environment, and have a reasonable level of fitness.
If you think you have got what it takes to join us please come to one of our open days.”
