Are you a great communicator? Passionate about the safety of our communities? Want to help us reduce fires, road traffic incidents, arson and anti-social behaviour?

A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen to join one of the country’s leading Fire and Rescue Services; to become part of a family where everyone plays their part in making “West Yorkshire Safer”.

As the manager of the district prevention team you’ll have the opportunity to ensure the effective delivery of the Community Safety Strategy and Service Plan objectives by working with partners to reduce fires, road traffic incidents, arson and anti-social behaviour.

You’ll have excellent leadership skills with a record of success in managing delivery teams, experience of working with “at risk” groups, extensive experience of working with a range of agencies at strategic level, with the ability to performance manage and evaluate a range of community safety initiatives.

You will need a leadership and management qualification or have an equivalent level of learning through experience.

Joining a first-rate organisation, you will have the job satisfaction of knowing each day that you are contributing to the success of one of just six metropolitan fire and rescue services in the UK, supporting over 950 firefighters who work around the clock to help people and save lives.

We are a caring organisation, promote an environment of inclusivity and learning and welcome people from all walks of life – you must be able to show commitment to our values such as integrity and teamwork.

If you can meet this challenge, we want to hear from you!
