Can I join the fire service if I'm a reservist in the Royal Navy Reserve, the Royal Marine Reserve, the Army Reserve and the Royal Air Force Reserve

Yes, absolutely.

We are a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant and have policies in place to support those who are reservists or ex-serving personnel working for us.

We welcome applications from serving personnel or those who have served previously.

We recognise the value of serving personnel, both regular and reserve, veterans, military families and cadet forces contribute to our organisation and the country. Therefore, we will endeavour to uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, which are:

  • no member of the Armed Forces Community should face a disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen
  • in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved
