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.

- Have a high level of fitness.
- Are a team player.
- Hold a current manual driver's licence.

- Project Firefighter (includes positions designated for Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people)
- Rappel Crew

Salaries commence from $1014 per week plus superannuation.
