South Wales Fire & Rescue Recruiting On-Call Firefighters In The Vale


South Wales Fire and Rescue Service are currently recruiting for On-Call Firefighters across South Wales, including Llantwit Major and Cowbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan.

In South Wales, On-Call Firefighters make up almost half of the operational workforce and are generally located in rural communities, small towns and villages.

Like the Wholetime Duty System role, On-Call Firefighters respond to fires and Special Service Calls e.g. road traffic collisions, chemical emergencies, flooding and other natural disasters. They are also required to inform and educate their local communities and carry out Safe and Well visits in people’s homes.

On-Call Firefighters can come from all walks of life, be they builders, stay-at-home parents, factory workers or those not currently employed. All the Service asks is that they are able to give their time to assist the Fire and Rescue Service in return for a salary.

On-Call Firefighters are asked to commit to providing a specified number of hours of cover and to attend an evening training session each week (known as drill night).


Candidates must be a minimum of 17 years and 6 months of age on the date of application and a minimum of 18 years of age on the first day of the Firefighter Training Course to be eligible to apply.

The South Wales Fire and Rescue service are currently recruiting in:

  • Abercarn
  • Llantwit Major
  • Cowbridge
  • Ogmore Vale
  • Pontycymmer
  • Caldicot
  • Gilfach Goch
