Scottish Fire & Rescue Service are looking to recruit a number of firefighters on the Retained Duty System (RDS), in the area.
In Turriff, there are five vacancies and the stations in Banff & Aberchirder also have vacancies that are being recruited for.
You must be aged 18 years or over, have a good level of physical fitness, have the required standard of vision and colour perception. You will be required to be readily available to attend incidents and should therefore live or work around 5 – 8 minutes from the Fire Station you are applying for.
RDS Firefighters are called upon to attend the same wide range of emergency service as wholetime Firefighters, including fires, floods, road traffic accidents, chemical spills and more. They can also be called upon to work with wholetime Firefighters to promote fire safety messages, giving fire safety advice to schools and other organisations as well as carrying out free home fire risk assessments within their communities.
In return, RDS Firefighters are paid an annual retainer fee plus additional payments for every incident attended and time spent on all activity including training nights, community engagement and courses.
Applications should be made via the My Jobs Scotland website.
