Lots of travelling
Too many sites
A demanding way of life, hours of boring mundain and dull as dishwater work followed by intense action, if you can put up with the rough then the smooth is worth it, I guess.
Long hours of boring repetitive work, London weighting is not worth much
I was , I believe the most qualified medically trained person there? I enjoyed teaching medical emergency situations and management. The job was not just at the training centres but at stations also. The Senior management were retired FireOfficers, who were quick to get rid of you, however if you put them in your place, i bet they could not do your role?
Training, Fire Service community
A secure place to work. Secure as in a potential job for life. The recruitment process could do with a lot of work, though.It can be very frustrating and the lack of willing to make the change that is needed makes it even more so.
Lots of leave
Lack of progression opportunites
