Apply to be an on-call firefighter

Current vacancies for our on-call firefighter recruitment

Essex County Fire and Rescue Service has a total of 51 fire stations across the county. A large majority of these are on-call stations or are partly crewed by on-call firefighters.

You’ll find that most of our stations are permanently recruiting. This is because on-call firefighters need to live or work within five minutes of the station, so there’s a chance that if they move house or change their day job they will no longer be in response distance.

If your local station is on our recruiting list you can visit their profile page to find out more about them. Alternatively you can choose another general topic to find out more about the role.
