Support staff

​Working for Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) is not just restricted to operational firefighter roles.  We have control room operatives who handle emergency calls, equipment and vehicle technicians, ICT specialists and various administration roles; ranging from those in Information Management, Fleet, Training and Prevention areas. 

Vacancies for these roles are advertised on the Public Sector Jobs East website.

Support staff roles

We have a variety of opportunities for you to get involved in NFRS. As a volunteer you will meet new people, develop your existing skills and broaden your knowledge of the fire service and its role within the wider community.

The four main areas where you can volunteer include:

Depending on your role, there are a number of varied activities you can get involved with, such as:

  • community events
  • fire station visits from community groups such as the Scouts
  • guiding young people on their journey with the Emergency Services Cadets
  • utilising your specialist skills to help us make 'Northamptonshire safer'

Our volunteers are made up of people from a wide range of backgrounds who volunteer for a variety of reasons, so if you'd like to give something back, please get in touch and join us now.
