An exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit apprentices in the Fire Control Room (FCR) of County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service (CDDFRS). We are looking to recruit two apprentices to embark upon an innovative, tailored and structured training plan covering Emergency Service Contact Handling and Fire Control Operator training

We consider ourselves to be a professional, high performing, inclusive and innovative organisation which is well regarded by the communities we serve and the partner organisations with whom we collaborate.
As an apprentice in the FCR, you will play an important role in supporting the inspiring culture and high performance we strive towards for all our colleagues as well as developing your own skills and abilities. Successful applicants will be required to work towards the national apprenticeship standard, Emergency Service Contact Handling Level 3.
No formal qualifications are required to embark on this apprenticeship programme however candidates who have not already achieved English and Maths GCSE, or equivalent, at grade C/ level 4 or above, must achieve a Level 2 equivalent standard in both prior to the completion of year 1 of the Apprenticeship.

The successful candidates will be given the chance to experience all areas of the organisation gaining an insight into the Service’s statutory responsibilities and day to day operations.

Successful candidates will work 37hrs per week working between the hours of 07:30 and 22:00 (including weekends). In return the post offers 26 days annual leave (pro rata), provision of uniform, sports facilities, car parking and a pension scheme.

The Fire Control Operator apprenticeships are open to anyone who will be 18 or over on 13th September 2021.
