Firefighter recruitment is now closed!
Applications closed at 12noon on Monday 17 October. Practical tests for those who are successful at the online stage will be in early November. Interviews for those who pass the practicals will be held in December.
To become a WMFS firefighter, you must:
- be at least 17-and-a-half at the time you apply
- have GCSE grade C or above (or equivalent) in Maths and English
- live within the West Midlands Fire Service delivery area (postcodes will be checked and proof of address will be required).
We’ll be actively encouraging applications from female candidates and from members of the West Midlands’ black, Asian and ethnic minority communities. These groups are under-represented in our workforce, which we want to reflect our communities as much as possible. The process is, of course, open to all. You can read more about this in our positive action section.
