Stage 2: Telephone interview

After returning your application form you will be contacted to take part in a short telephone interview.

Stage 3: Selection event

If you are successful at the telephone interview stage we will invite you to come along to a selection event.

Before attending the event you will receive an email outlining what to expect on the day and how you can prepare. 

At the event you will meet a number of TWFRS employees and volunteers who will showcase their work to give you a better understanding of some of the activities that successful applicants could get involved with. 

The event will involve you taking part in a one-to-one interview. This will allow you to describe your skills and experiences and give examples of times you have displayed some of TWFRS’ values and behaviours. 

Stage 3: Induction 

If you are successful after attending a selection event you will be offered induction and training and formally accepted (on receipt of two satisfactory references) as a volunteer for TWFRS.
