Be a part of something special


Calling Senior Psychologist, Psychologist and Organisational Psychologist professionals 


For over 100 years, the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) has been a vital part of the community, working hard to protect life, property and the environment from bush fires.  We are the world’s largest volunteer firefighting service, with over 76,000 members, proudly built on a strong tradition of service, trust, resilience, respect, and teamwork.


To hear more about the RFS, click here. 


The 2019-20 bush fire season saw our members serve and protect in the face of the most extraordinary circumstances – because they care about their communities and without hesitation will be there for them in tough times.

But who cares for our members, especially when the going gets tough for them?  That’s where you come in


We are looking to substantially expand our mental health and wellbeing team, to ensure the best quality support is available to our RFS volunteer and staff members now and into the future. This means making sure we have dedicated, accessible professionals across the State (North Eastern, North Western, Western, Hunter, Greater Sydney, South Eastern, South Western, and Headquarters).


We have several exciting opportunities available for qualified professionals who are keen to make a real difference, through critical incident support, short-term counselling services and referral pathways to care, and holistic and proactive health and wellbeing programs.
