Be part of the team that keeps Scotland safe!

Everyone at Scottish Fire & Rescue Service plays a key role in protecting Scottish communities and saving lives - and you could contribute to our vital work.

As the fourth largest fire and rescue service in the world, our remit is wide-reaching and extends far beyond preventing and controlling fires. Our day-to-day duties often include responding to road traffic collisions, dealing with hazardous materials, providing rope and water rescue services and attending to floods. Working alongside our partner agencies, we are committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the people of Scotland.

But you don't have to be out on the streets in a uniform to make a difference. As well as front-line Service Delivery roles, our opportunities span into functions such as People and Organisational Development; Training, Safety and Assurance; Finance and Procurement; and, of course, Information and Communications Technology. Every single person at SFRS is important, and together we are making Scotland a safer country.

In this role your primary responsibility is to ensure the availability and integrity of SFRS's mobilising system, including command and control and remote fire station equipment. You will provide technical advice and assistance on any aspect of the SFRS communications systems. Implementation and support of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service's network infrastructure, including LAN's, WAN's, mobilising systems, radio, paging and telephony systems, will also be integral to the role. With the installation, maintenance and repair of communications systems and associated equipment also being key, this is a busy and exciting role.

You will hold an HNC or HND in Electronic Engineering or have equivalent experience and have significant experience in relevant system technology and knowledge of VHF/UHF radio, voice communications, GD92 POCSAG paging, satellite communications and networking technologies.

Providing engineering cover and advice for mobilising and essential communications equipment means this role requires you to be part of a 24/7 on-call rota, therefore a full and valid UK driving license is essential.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is an Equal Opportunities employer and encourages applications from all sectors of the community. In addition, we are committed to being a "Disability Confident Employer" and will ensure that all applicants who meet the essential criteria for the role are invited for interview.
