Do you want to earn extra money, serve your community and save lives in a challenging and rewarding role? If so, a career as an on-call firefighter might be just the thing for you.



We are actively recruiting for on-call firefighters at stations across the county and, providing you live within five minutes of your local station, we want to tell you that you can join our team.

Our on-call staff are a vital part of our Service that provide fire cover from their home or place of work. Trained to the same high standard as full-time firefighters, they get to earn money by serving their family, friends and neighbours.

This part of our website is dedicated to our recruitment and is full of information about the role of a firefighter - and how you can turn your dream into a reality.

Our Frequently Asked Questions page aims to dispel some of the common myths about being a firefighter, and answer some of the questions that may be on your mind.

Our Pay and Benefits page outlines what's in it for you - should you decide to join our team.

The Job Related Tests page gives you an insight into the tests that you will have to pass to become a firefighter. The idea behind this is to give you a headstart in your application process.

Our Life as a Retained Firefighter page gives you an insight into the role, and our Case Studies page includes the stories of some of our current staff.

Finally, our How to apply page does exactly what it says on the tin.

If you're thinking of joining our team, take a look at the information on all of these pages and get in touch with the team at your local station, as they will be able to give you a real insight into what the job entails.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Staff are needed at the following stations:  Misterton, Worksop, Retford, TuxfordCollingham, Southwell, Blidworth, Newark, Eastwood, Bingham, Stapleford, East Leake, Harworth, Warsop, Hucknall and Ashfield
