Applications for the next ACT Fire & Rescue (ACTF&R) recruitment round open today as the ACT Government delivers more firefighters to keep Canberra safe.

“If you are looking for a varied role where you are supported and provided a rewarding and flexible lifestyle, a career as an ACT Fire & Rescue firefighter could be for you.”

Following a competitive recruitment process, the successful applicants will secure a position on one of two ACT Fire & Rescue Recruit Colleges scheduled for early and mid 2021.

A/g ACT Fire & Rescue Chief Officer Chris Zeithhofer said “ACTF&R is seeking motivated and community-minded individuals who are looking for a unique challenge”.
