Work Experience Programme 2020 now CLOSED

Work Experience Programme

Thank you to all the students who have applied for work experience with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service.

We have received a considerable amount of applications this year, therefore it may take a little longer to look through them all before getting back to students to notify them on the next stage in the process.

However we are hopeful that:

Successful applicants will be notified: week commencing 10th February 2020

Interviews will take place: week commencing Monday 24th February 2020  

Interested in work experience in 2021?

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service offer work experience places for year 10 students who attend school in the Cheshire, Halton and Warrington areas.   

The placement will take place primarily at Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service, Sadler Road, Winsford, CW7 2FQ, and also at our safety centre, Safety Central, Cliff Lane, Lymm, Warrington, WA13 0TE. However it may also involve visiting other sites. Students would be responsible for their own travel to and from locations.
