Our firefighters have one of the most respected jobs within the community: responding to incidents, preventing them from happening and protecting people and property in West Yorkshire. Find out more about what they do, promotion opportunities and technical areas they specialise in.
Our employees do more than just putting out fires, they aim to reduce risks to West Yorkshire people and property. We deliver prevention programmes to make people safer from fire and other emergencies. Our protection activities focus on commercial properties, including schools, hospitals and businesses. Employees working in support roles ensure our front-line services are managed and delivered effectively.
We employ professionals in many areas of expertise, including:
An opportunity has arisen for a Watch Manager (WM) to work at Holmfirth Fire Station on the Retained Duty System (RDS). Applications are welcome from existing Wholetime and RDS Watch Managers and competent Crew Managers (CM) as a promotion opportunity.
Due to a reduction in hours, expressions of interest are sought from wholetime substantive Crew and Watch Managers to work within the Operational Special Projects COMAH team, based at SDC. There will however be the opportunity to work remotely on occasions depending on work constraints and this would be agreed locally by the individual and their line manager. There may also be the opportunity to maintain operational competencies and provide resilience capability within the Grey Book Flexi system. There will be an expectation to attend external training courses outside of West Yorkshire.
