We respond to fire and other emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whilst our firefighters are the cornerstone of CFA services, what goes on behind the scenes is just as important in helping to protect lives and property.

The role requires you to work independently as well as a team member and to demonstrate ability to think outside the box and you will be required to participate in a 24/7 work roster which entails after hours and weekend work.
Further detailed responsibilities are found in the Position Description.
