Project Firefighter Positions

Each summer the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and Parks Victoria employ field based seasonal firefighters to assist with the prevention and suppression of bushfires in parks and forests across Victoria.  Applications are generally sought in August each year.  It’s a job where no two days are the same.

Are you ready for the challenge?

All training will be provided and positions are open to those who:

  • Have a high level of fitness.
  • Are a team player.
  • Holds a current manual drivers licence.

Positions are available over the warmer months (generally between November and April).

Applications for the 2014-15 season are now closed.

For further information about our firefighter roles see the Project Firefighters brochure
