The recruitment and selection of the right personnel is critical to deliver a professional emergency response service. FSA looks for a balance of the right cultural fit, and the right site experience. Our selection process is more comprehensive than our competitors; we make no apologies for this. We want our candidates to undergo a challenging selection test, therefore ensuring successful candidates share our core values and meet the required skills, experience and attitude to be successful in any role they apply for.

To continue to fill our need for employees, we run several ads on an ongoing basis to fill our database of prospective personnel and to ensure that we have a strong contingent of Medical and Emergency Response staff and Emergency Response/Safety Trainers across Australia for deployment on Medical and Emergency Response contracts.
