Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service (LFRS) recognises the value of employing people with a range of skills, knowledge and experience which often means recruiting people from different backgrounds. In order to promote diversity in the workforce, LFRS encourages applications from a cross section of the community which should reflect the diversity of those we serve. The link below provides access to all available vacancies at LFRS.
Applications are therefore welcome from people who may consider themselves to have a disability as reasonable adjustment can be made, where possible, during the recruitment process. For example additional time can be given during written and psychometric testing. However the testing process, the training course and the role of a firefighter contains a high element of physical exertion.
