Firefighter Recruitment

Cheshire Fire Authority is committed to ensuring that all individuals and communities across Cheshire, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, remain safe and are able to engage with the organisation. It is especially important given the number of recruitment and volunteering opportunities available in 2018.

The number of staff who are open about their sexual orientation or gender identity in the workplace is slowly increasing and this is important because when staff can be themselves at work they are more productive, engaged and are more likely to make a contribution.

This is why flying the flag and being visible and consistent in our engagement with LGBT communities is so important. It is also why the Service’s LGBT staff network, Firepride and our 80+ Allies work so hard with bodies like Stonewall to ensure our staff, volunteers and cadets know where to get support and information and can tackle issues such as challenging inappropriate language
and behaviour.

Our wholetime firefighter recruitment campaign is now open and
closes 10am Monday 6th August. Visit for more details.
