Can anyone in Puhoi help us?

[ Via Rochelle Martin ]

We have an opportunity for Puhoi residents and we thought you might be interested – or might know someone who will be.

Would you, or someone close to you, like to be a career firefighter?

Fire and Emergency NZ is opening recruitment for career firefighters on 20 July.

In a recent survey 25% of people told us they would consider a career as a firefighter. Fire and Emergency New Zealand offers a steady job, career progression and multiple opportunities to put skills such as problem solving, empathy and team-building to good use.

From working in communities and schools to fighting fires and responding to motor vehicle accidents, the role is varied. No two days are the same. It’s not 9 to 5 and it’s not behind a desk.

We have firefighters from a range of diverse backgrounds and life experience.

Don’t let concerns like not being fit enough get in the way of applying. Our fitness video – which outlines how to prepare for the fitness test (only one element of the recruitment process) – is online and includes a training programme to get you test ready.

Applications can be received from from 20 July to 20 August with successful applicants needing to be available to start training in January or April 2019. You can find more information at: or feel to ask me any questions you have.

For those of you happy in your work – consider becoming a volunteer. We need people up and down the country with a wide range of skills. Find out more here.
