Welcome from the Mayor

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service are now looking for their next Chief Fire Officer to join our team.

As the Chief Fire Officer you will be an essential member of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s Strategic Leadership Team, working with other chief executives from across Greater Manchester with a shared vision to make “Greater Manchester one of the best places in the world to grow up, get on and grow old” by delivering the Greater Manchester Strategy.

GMFRS has gone through a significant period of change recently, with a clear aim to support the service in being ready and sustainable to meet the challenges of the future; this change has included full service reviews and organisational re-structuring. The foundations have now been laid for the future of GMFRS and we are looking for a committed, compassionate and inclusive public service leader, a leader who is ready to challenge the ways we work today and inspire colleagues and teams across the organisation as we move into new ways of working.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to really shape the future of GMFRS and have a positive impact on the communities of Greater Manchester.

Andy Burnham, Mayor, Greater Manchester
