Opportunities available statewide
We are looking for people who want to help protect Victorian communities from bushfire to become seasonal firefighters as part of Forest Fire Management Victoria crews.
Each year, we employ field based seasonal firefighters to assist with planned burning and the prevention and suppression of bushfires in parks and forests.
It's a job where no two days are the same. Seasonal firefighting is a great way to make a contribution, be challenged, work as part of a team and develop career pathways.
Are you ready?
Training will be provided and positions are open to people who:
- Have a high level of fitness.
- Are a team player.
- Hold a current manual driver's licence.
Positions available (generally between November and April) for a period of up to 22 weeks (minimum) include:
- Firefighter (includes positions designated for Australian Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people)
- Fire Support Officer
- Rappel Crew
Salaries commence from $952 per week plus superannuation.
Applications for the 2021-2022 season have now closed.
