Due to the success of the transfer-in process from our on-call firefighters, we have taken the decision to postpone recruitment for wholetime firefighters in the short term.
Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) will be looking to revisit wholetime recruitment over the next 12 months to enable people from outside of the fire service to apply.
For those who have considered applying this time around we realise this will be disappointing, however there are some proactive things that people can do between now and then:
- We would encourage you to regularly review our website for career opportunities as we have a wide range of roles across KFRS which may be of interest.
- Importantly our on-call firefighters have the opportunity to transfer into wholetime firefighter positions, after completing training. We are recruiting on-call firefighters now so please visit our website.
- Over the next 12 months we will be providing learning opportunities to find out more about us at events like family open days at our fire stations.
- We will be looking to hold a series of events where people can get a hands-on experience of what it’s like to be a firefighter. Keep an eye on our social media profiles too: Facebook and Twitter – search kent fire rescue.

Once again thank you for your interest in working for Kent Fire and Rescue Service.
