Project Firefighter Positions

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and Parks Victoria (PV) and are looking for people who want to help protect Victorian communities from bushfire to become seasonal firefighters as part of Forest Fire Management crews.

Each year, we employ field based seasonal firefighters to assist with planned burning and the prevention and suppression of bushfires in parks and forests.

It's a job where no two days are the same. Seasonal firefighting is a great way to make a contribution, be challenged, work as part of a team and develop career pathways.

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.
  • Hold a current manual drivers licence.

Applications for the 2017-18 season open Tuesday 1 August 2017 and close Sunday 27 August 2017.
