For the first time in nine years, Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service is looking to recruit new full-time firefighters.
The service is accepting applications from all Suffolk residents who are 18 or older, reasonably fit and healthy with a combination of strength and stamina.
Applications from black and minority ethnic groups and female candidates are particularly encouraged.
Candidates who are shortlisted will go through a series of assessments similar to the challenges they may face in the role, along with a formal interview and medical assessment.
Applications opened yesterday and will close on March 15.
The application process will close early if 1,500 applications are received.
