Permanent Firefighters

Applications for the 2014 Permanent Firefighter Recruitment Campaign have now closed.

Please note: Any technical difficulties or enquiries relating to the online assessment process to be directed to www.onetest.com.au/candidatesupport.

Fire & Rescue NSW Permanent Firefighter Recruitment campaign is designed to identify intelligent, fit, healthy and community-minded women and men to join its permanent firefighter ranks.

Our world-class emergency service organisation relies on highly skilled, ethical and professional individuals from a variety of backgrounds.  We are looking for people who can commit to Fire & Rescue NSW's values and contribute to fire prevention and emergency responses.

Firefighting is one of the most important and rewarding careers you could have. Firefighters are respected community members; and being a firefighter provides you with the opportunity to make a real and ongoing difference to the community of NSW.

  • If you applied in the 2013 PFF Campaign and want to be considered for the 2014 campaign you will need to reapply. Details can be found in the FAQ’s
  • You must be an Australian Citizen, Permanent Resident or New Zealand citizen. If you are a firefighter from another country, you will still need to satisfy these requirements before applying.
