Help with Firefighter competency

    • Thread Starter

    Hello. I've decided I want a career change and the Fire service is something I want to get into. The application is pretty straight forward with most of the questions asking for an example of when you shown a certain skill or behaviour and therefore you usually just use the STAR approach. 7

    However the first question was:

    Our number one priority is to work together for a safer Scotland and safety is at the core of everything we do. Can you detail how you would support and demonstrate our SAFETY value, working as a firefighter within the SFRS. NB: Your response must be no longer than 250 words

    Now the way the question is laid out, I'm not sure if it's wanting a more of a personal statement kind of answer, or another specific STAR example, which if that were the case I'm not sure how I can relate to any work experience I've done in the past?

    Any advice or other opinions on this would be helpful. Thanks!
