The Kent Website since 1999
Welcome to the Yourcounty emergency services jobs pages. The purpose of this page is to feature emergency service and armed forces employers together with careers in law and order. We publish informations and links on this page; some internal, some external, most jobs based in Kent others further afield. Most of the organisations listed on this page may have quite strict eligibility requirements, you may save yourself a lot of time if you investigate these before you make your application.
As always we are pleased to get your feedback about any of these employers. Contact details at the foot of the page.
Employers and vacancy links on this page fall into three distinct groups. Those directly related to the traditional emergency services (Ambulance, Fire & Rescue and Police) agencies linked to law and order, typically organisations reporting to the Justice Ministry (Prison and Probation Service) and forces involved directly in the defence of the realm (the military and security agencies).
In the UK we think of the emergency services as being those agencies working across the whole of the country that respond to emergencies and can be reached through the 999 telephone number. The Health Service (in the guise of the Ambulance Service, The Fire & Rescue Service and the Police). However there are in fact dozens of organs that are prepared to respond to emergencies, some of them can be directly engaged by calling 999, other are generally contacted by one of the other services. A few examples are: Bomb Disposal, The Lifeboat Service and Mountain Rescue.
Created in 2007, the Justice Ministry is responsible for increasing the wider confidence in the agencies of justice, protecting the public as well as reducing offending. Most people will be familiar with the Prison Service and Probation Service but may not be quite so aware of the job opportunities available with: Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, HM Courts & Tribunals Service, the Ministry of Justice itself and the Youth Justice Board.
Two different kinds of agencies offering jobs and careers, the traditional armed forces like the Army and Royal Marines and national security services such as MI5 and MI6.
We hope you find this feature both relevant and up to date. it's aim to list some of the main job opportunities in the military and local emergency services. We have most of the bases covered but there are more potential employment opportunities that we have featured. This isn't a static list and we're happy to add new employers and change or update the information. Let us know is you think we can improve the content here. We can't control the information held on other websites so please take a moment to review our disclaimer.
