Dear London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (London Fire Brigade),

Please may you provide me the information on how often the LFB recruit Wholetime Firefighters, on average. I understand it may not be a scheduled occurrence, so therefore could you give me an average year span.

Yours faithfully,

Leo Bruce.

London Fire Commissioner (London Fire Brigade)

Dear Leo,

Thank you for your request, dated 4 December 2016 regarding information on firefighter recruitment.

I can confirm that there is no set recruitment time for firefighters. In the last 24 months we have run three campaigns, however previous years have seen fewer or none. Firefighter recruitment windows are based on several factors including, but not limited to; organisational needs, number of leavers and internal promotions. We advise that if your are interested in applying you regularly visit our website (https://jobs.london-fire.gov.uk/) to keep informed of any updates. It is expected that we will be running another campaign this year.

I hope you find the information provided useful. If you have any further questions please let me know.

Your request has been dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA). If you are dissatisfied by this response you can request an internal review by writing to the Head of Information Management and Performance at the address below (or email [email address]).

Further information about your information rights (including how to raise a concern or make a complaint) is available from the Information Commissioner’s Office on their website at www.ico.org.uk or by writing to them at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.

Kind Regards,

Dear London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (London Fire Brigade),

Thanks very much for the information. I was wondering if the requirement of a potential firefighter to reside in London, would be a set factor or to the adjustment of change.

Yours faithfully,

Leo Bruce.
