Working for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is a rewarding experience.

We also believe in nurturing talent and developing future leaders, and for that we need people with the determination and enthusiasm to succeed. As a member of our staff you will be encouraged to follow a Personal Development Plan to progress your career against recognised goals.

Training requirements are different for each role, but we take an all-round approach to your learning and development, so you will know that whatever job you take on, you will always have the skills to do it - and to do it well.
