Whilst firefighting and attending other emergency incidents is the most recognised part of what we do, we know we could not achieve this without the right support functions in place to provide the systems, processes and technology to help deliver a vital service to our communities.

We have a whole host of career opportunities in non-operational functions and each role is equally important in helping us achieve our vision to reduce risk and save lives. We will recruit based on skills, experience and behaviours and are looking for talented, motivated, flexible, forward thinking professionals who want to contribute to the future of Essex County Fire and Rescue Service.

Support staff perform a range of functions across the Service – from project management to corporate communications; human resources to property services; fleet to information technology – each providing the Service with specialist professional advice and services.

As each job is different, there is a separate Role Profile and Person Specification for each role and these are provided at the time of advertising a vacancy.
