It takes many kinds of people, in many different roles around the county, to keep our Service functioning well.
Our current vacancies are listed on the dedicated Vacancies page
We employ around 280 wholetime firefighters, around 370 firefighters on the on call duty system, 30 firefighters (control) who answer 999 calls and mobilise our fire crews, and over 125 support staff who work in a whole variety of roles supporting the frontline, from vehicle technicians and project managers to HR advisers, administrators and accountants.
There are many job opportunities within Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service and you can enjoy a career with us, helping to keep people safe from fire, even if you don't want to be a firefighter.
Use the menu on the left to find out more about both operational and non-operational roles.
Questions About Recruitment
Many of the questions you may have about the application and recruitment processes for firefighters can be found in the Wholetime and On-call sections. Additionally, we often direct people to UK Fire Service Resources for further information. We do not endorse any third-party products or services, however you may find this unofficial external website a useful resource.
Firefighter have-a-go day - February 7th!
We're holding a 'have-a-go day' at Huntingdon Fire Station, primarily for people from under-represented groups who fancy finding out more about the role of a wholetime or on-call firefighter. You can try some of the activities you'll need to complete to become a firefighter and you can talk to men and women firefighters about the role. For more information, including times, see the Have-a-go day page.
