30 Dec Essex Fire Service take steps to recruit more female firefighters
Essex County Fire and Rescue Service is taking positive action to encourage females to come and try out a new career.
A statement read “We want our workforce to be as diverse as the communities we serve and to do this we particularly need to recruit more women, who are not only under-represented but who we know make great firefighters.”
Essex County Fire and Rescue Service are holding two female-only taster sessions for women to come along to find out more about the role and try out some of the physical tests you’d need to perform during recruitment and training. Their firefighters and fitness advisors will all be on hand to offer advice and support.
The taster sessions will take place on Saturday 20 and 27 January at Witham Fire Station between 1pm – 3pm.
Females from Essex and the London Boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge and Waltham Forest are all invited to attend.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place. Please ensure you wear sportswear on the day.
