Station Manager ‘B’ Pool (Flexible Duty System) – East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service

East Sussex Fire & Rescue are opening up the recruitment process for our Station Manager pool, which will be used to fill both permanent and temporary vacancies arising across the Service over the next 24 months.

We welcome applications from substantive and competent Watch Managers looking for promotion opportunities as well as existing substantive Station Managers wishing to transfer to East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service.

Appointment from the pool will be based on suitability for particular posts and not on rank order. This ensures the Service secures the right skills and experience in the right posts as we continue to build on our future.

ESFRS is an organisation committed to developing our people and creating opportunities to enable the continuation of professional development. As well as accessing the ESFRS Station Manager Development Programme successful candidates will also continue to develop their potential through a range of tailored personal development opportunities in preparation for future roles within the Service.

A condition of the appointment to the role of flexible duty Station Manager is that the post holder will provide operational cover from within the County. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer relocation expenses.

The pool process will start with the submission of an online application and Line Manager report via Jobtrain ( Those that are shortlisted from the application and Line Manager report will be invited to the next stage of the process, which will consist of an online assessment, staff engagement panel and interview.  External candidates who do not possess a L2 Incident Command qualification will be required to complete an Initial Test of Tactical Command Potential (IToTCP).
