Expression of Interest - GMFRS Wholetime Firefighter

Blue Light

Emergency Response



We are pleased to announce that Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service are inviting aspiring Firefighters to express their interest in working for us. Those who have expressed their interest will then have the opportunity to apply for a Taster Day.

Candidates attending a Taster Day will be given the chance to experience what it is like to be a Firefighter, meet some Firefighters and undertake some role-related tests, which will allow participants to gain awareness of the physical fitness requirements and the functional skills required to progress in the process.

To register your interest in working with us, please sign up on our expression of interest form and your details will be entered onto our Firefighter database. From this database, we will email you with further information about how to book a Taster Day and gain your eligibility for the application itself. In addition to this we will also send you a 6-part newsletter that outlines the stages of the enrolment process. 

For more information about the role, Taster Days or gaining your eligibility, review the information available in on our website, using the information links provided. We recommend that you do this before to registering your interest.

The GMCA is an Equal Opportunities Employer and we positively welcome applications and expressions of interests from all candidates regardless of age, disability, Tran’s status and Non-binary identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
