If I’m not successful in applying to be a firefighter, when can I apply again?



View all FAQs

If you are unsuccessful in an application to be a firefighter with us, you can apply again in 12 months from your notification from us that you were not successful.

Due to the application process requiring a national insurance number, which you would have already entered on your previous application, the system may show an error stating the NI number has already been used.

If you experience this difficulty, please email our recruitment team at opportunities@wmfs.net with your details and this can be reset for you.
