Service seeking retained corps
The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service is looking for people with grit and community spirit to join its cache of retained staff.
Applications are open now until Monday, 20 March.

Although the selection process is described as 'rigorous' and at times tough, anyone over 18 with basic qualifications is invited to apply.
