The apprenticeships are open to people aged 16 and over and who have left school.

The apprenticeships include business administration, catering, community safety, ICT technical support, maintenance, motor vehicle technician and project assistant.

Learning and Development Manager Tim Wareham said: “The people who work at Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service are its biggest asset and we are keen to add enthusiastic, talented and hardworking apprentices to the team.

“The recruitment day is a great opportunity for people to find out about the roles that are available, to speak to members of staff from the Service and ask any questions they may have. We have had a number of apprentices over the years who have gone on to do extremely well within the Service and we will support and encourage new apprentices to achieve their very best too.

“There are many benefits of doing an apprenticeship including being paid while you learn, gaining experience of being part of a team and earning qualifications which will help people as their career progresses. It is a win, win situation.”
