Does Avon Fire and Rescue Service require pre-employment background checks? What kind of background check does Avon Fire and Rescue Service do and how long does it take to complete?
Not background checks as such (not when I applied anyway, this could well have changed in recent years), but an initial application, followed by psychometric testing, and an intensive interview process. For operational roles this would also have included fitness testing.
Very highly structured, particularly for uniformed roles. Almost militaristic, but that's how it works.
