Cleveland Fire Authority is seeking to recruit ambitious, innovative, and forward-thinking individuals to the role of Station Manager. Over the coming months we have several vacancies at this level and therefore we want to establish a talent pool of people eligible for current and future temporary or substantive appointments.
Recently rated as ‘Good’ in all areas by His Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Service, we consider ourselves to be a high performing, innovative organisation – one that is well regarded by our communities and Partners.
We are looking for people who will be committed to the achievement of our vision – people who will make a difference to the safety and quality of life of every local citizen on Teesside.
To be successful you will need to demonstrate and understanding of the challenges facing the Fire and Rescue Service and offer evidence of delivering transformational change.  You will act as an ambassador for equality, diversity and inclusion, as well as being a role model for our values and ethical behaviours.
If you are looking for a leadership opportunity in a fire and rescue service with a great reputation and a strong track record of visible leadership and delivering positive outcomes for our communities, then Cleveland could be for you.
Applications are invited from competent and substantive Watch Managers and existing Station Managers.
