Recruitment Event Sherburn

13th August 2010

Would you give some of your free time to serve your community as a Part Time Firefighter? If so than North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service needs to hear from you, especially if you live or work near Sherburn.

If you are interested in finding out more, a special awareness event is being held at Sherburn Fire Station, Scarborough Road, Sherburn, YO17 8QB on the 8th September between 1600-1800hrs.

The organiser of the event, Watch Manager Ian Perkins, himself a firefighter from Stokesley, explains;  “Our fire service serves the communities of the largest county in England with much of it relying on part time, or “on-call” firefighters to respond to incidents when needed. These dedicated people have regular day time jobs and carry a bleeper that alerts them when they need to get to the fire station to answer an emergency call. The job is varied and exciting and I hope that we can attract all members of the community. Women and members of other under-represented groups will be especially welcome on the evening”.

On hand to give advice and information on the evening will be serving firefighters who can answer questions you may have, as well as specialists who can answer questions on a variety of issues from how long it will take to train, payment information and equal opportunities issues.

Ian Perkins continues; “I would also like to invite employers from the local area to come along and see what we do as it is vital that they see the benefits of having a firefighter working for them and we can discuss ways that we can work together to keep their communities and workplaces safe”.

For more information please call Ian Perkins on 07771 843 972 or the Personnel section at NYFRS Headquarters on 01609 788563.
