Equality, Diversity and Inclusion


Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service is committed to equality of opportunity and diversity in employment. We welcome applications from all sectors of the community and we aim to recruit a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve.

Women and ethnic minorities are under-represented within the service and are therefore actively encouraged to apply for positions that become available.
