Further information

London Fire Brigade (LFB) is seeking highly motivated, talented and adaptable applicants who have the vision, leadership skill and potential to become part of the Brigade’s top management team. Do you have what we are looking for?

You would join the Deputy Assistant Commissioner’s operational rota, undertaking the duties and responsibilities of the Duty Brigade Manager. You would be mobilised to operational incidents to perform the strategic monitoring and incident command function and represent the Brigade as its nominated ‘Gold’ Support Officer. You would also play an integral role in managing the Brigade’s Strategic Response arrangement, which supports declared major emergencies, out of London operational deployments and business continuity events affecting the service. These roles and responsibilities represent a significant operational and strategic management commitment and will require provision of a standby or call out base in London.

It is an exciting and challenging time to join us. We continue to focus our efforts on prevention and protection, as well as providing a first class operational response to a wide range of emergencies. We have made big changes in recent years, taking bold decisions to set the Brigade in the strongest possible position at a time of public sector savings. But further challenges lie ahead.

We have made important progress in terms of the diversity profile of our staff, but there is much more to do. London is a wonderfully diverse city and we consider equality in all our work. We’re committed to promoting fairness and tackling discrimination. We’re also working to remove the barriers that stop people reaching their full potential. With this in mind, we welcome applications from under-represented groups.

In line with the Basic Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) employment checks will be completed for the successful applicant, which will include a basic criminal records check. The successful applicant will be required to declare any convictions for offences which are not spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and a Disclosure Scotland/Basic Disclosure will be undertaken before an appointment is confirmed.
