These fantastic opportunities give you the chance to make a real difference to people in West Yorkshire, the Fire Service and the Fire Authority and join an award-winning Fire Protection Team. 

The Fire Protection Team works to inspect buildings to ensure compliance with fire safety law. The team offers advice and support to commercial premises - everything from large multi-national operations, to small high street outlets, schools, hospitals, hotels and high-rise buildings.

The Fire Protection Team’s work is vital and where there have been breaches in fire safety legislation, the team has taken enforcement action to bring those responsible to justice, resulting in recent high profile legal cases.

You could be at the forefront of helping us make a difference.

We are looking for enthusiastic people who care deeply about fire safety. You must have the ability to work flexibly with minimum supervision to meet priorities and be an innovator in this field. Working days will be Monday to Friday with occasional weekend work.

One of just five metropolitan Fire Services in the country, WYFRS offers an excellent package to all of our staff including a Local Government Pension Scheme, access to free parking, flexible working, an employee assistance programme, training and development opportunities, sports and social clubs and the use of an on-site gym free of charge. Not only that but the Service received a resounding ‘good’ report from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) at its most recent inspection in December 2019.

You also get to work in the beautiful county of West Yorkshire with its impressive and varied landscape.
