A great place to work and develop your career

We’re a successful and ambitious organisation. Our people are our most important asset and we are proud to work with a team of talented and committed individuals.

We currently employ around 150 people across a broad mix of roles. We recruit into a number of areas, including administration, marketing, finance, and training, as well as into various support functions across areas such as customer support and incident ground maintenance.

We also regularly recruit qualified, talented and ambitious seconded officers from the UK Fire and Rescue Service to  deliver specialist training to our delegates. See our section on Training  for more details. 

*Please note that The Fire Service College does NOT directly recruit firefighters.  Recruitment of full time and retained firefighters is the responsibility of individual UK Fire and Rescue Services. If you are interested in becoming a firefighter, please contact your local Fire and Rescue Service or Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) for further information.
