Might give it a whirl, you'll never know if you don't try!
Hmmm, a large unused document that is extremely important, but knowone knows what is in it or what it does.

Must be related to some sort of government department... - Footy

i heard it's unlikely they will recruit in 2014 - due to not getting much budget

Pretty sure the budget cuts were minimal. SAMFS has a minimum staffing numbers policy so if there is a number of retirements then they will have to recruitg

Hi everyone,Its my first time posting on the forum, so i thought I'd say Hello. I've been eagerly waiting for the next MFS recruitment to come around. This will be my first try as well. I didn't apply back in 2011 as had just gotten back from an extended stint overseas and had no HR license at the time.

I have heard to start looking around end of Feb. I will not be joining in the excitement this time around, start a new job on Monday so my aspirations of becoming a fireman are now at an end. Good luck to all applicants, know the PID and enjoy the ride. I will watch with interest!!!!

Any year 11 maths/english student could teach you. The maths is not difficult. Just google aptitude testing and practise the examples you find.

The key is studying! It's how I got passed the defence force aptitude and I imagine they are pretty similar but most of it can be in your head! Study, get plenty I sleep and be confidant on the day you'll be fine :)

Do you guys think 19 is to young for full-time if I meet the prerequisites? Any know of any MFS staff that young?

They cant discriminate due to age so you have a good shot. I know guys who were 20/21, even 50yr olds get in :-o

That is good to hear I only worry because the job does require a fair bit of life experience I gather that's why they might look at me a bit different I guess. Though I do think more younger people would do the MFS good as it is an ageing work force. But I'll try my luck if there is one this year.

You will never know if you dont have a crack at it, if you are not successful then you still have the experience of going through the process. Have a crack and see how it all plays out. Good luck to all!!
