Avon Fire & Rescue Service will be recruiting fulltime, known as wholetime, firefighters from Tuesday 2 May 2017, when applications will be available to download from this website.

We think it’s important our workforce is representative of the communities we serve so we are encouraging applications from groups currently under-represented within our workforce, particularly women and people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds. You can read more about this in the FAQs section.
