Transfield Services have a fairly stable work force and so do not have a requirement to recruit. However when staff leave they do employ a replacement.

You need to be an already fully nationally qualified firefighter with aviation modules.

As far as "private" fire servce go, Transfield are pretty good. Worked there for nearly 7 years and loved every minute of it. I only jumped ship because there was little room for promotion due to the very stable work force, and the money being splashed around in the mining industry at the moment was too hard to turn down :) I think having only 4 people leave in 7 years must say something for the company.

I had a meeting with a colleuge the other day who had been to see what the transfield site was like... he told me

1. they are looked after well
2. have good remuneration
3. Have good equipment
4. have good management..

all in all sounds like the bad rumours are from those who regected or just jealous!

Transfeld did have a bad name when they first started in the private fire protection industry but it has got better and their equipment is great.
