But the topic is SAMFS recruitment  :roll:

A lot of those people that are keen to get into the job don't just focus on Adelaide. Especially when Adelaide aint advertising...

Don't hold your breath, probably not going to be any for a long while.

Website now says November. Looks like we will all be waiting out for another few months at least.  :x Good for me though. Gives me time to get the truck licence sorted.

If the website said monitor from November im guessing that would mean they wont call for applicants til early next year because nothing will happen over December and early January

Could have something to do with upcoming State elections?

I heard the Libs may offer redundancy packages to ageing firies, which may open up more opportunities...

nothing to do with that I would say. They had about a dozen retirements this year and probably expect the same next year so will need to run a couple of squad.

Considering Christies, O'Halloran Hill and some other stations look like most of their fire fighters are in the 50+ age bracket, I would say that there will probably be a number of vacancies in the next year or two.

I'll be looking at an intake in 2015 anyway.

Was only about 10 retirements this year and wouldnt expect it to change much in next couple of years

Hi everyone, I have been following this forum for sometime now but this is my first time commenting. I have been with the CFS for a number of years and a former soldier however the next recruitment will be my first time applying for the MFS.

I see the website has been updated lately saying to monitor from January 2014 but has anyone heard of anything further?

The SAMFS never give too much info away regarding recruitment, i have heard they will start a process in January, not sure if the upcoming state election and possible change of government would have any impact on this. Just keep monitoring the website and make sure you have everything rewuired to apply at short notice eg. truck license and current first aid
