We are looking for responsible, compassionate individuals who are interested in a rewarding career in public service. Our employees are our most valuable resource, and we are committed to providing learning and development opportunities to our employees at all levels.
We offer three distinct pathways to join our Fire Rescue Team.
The direct hire path allows Fire Rescue to recruit applicants who meet the following minimum qualifications:
The Direct Hire application process remains continually open.
We also maintain a hiring pool to fill Firefighter / Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) / Paramedic vacancies.
The hiring pool selection process creates a pool of applicants, including both non-certified and partially certified candidates, from which jobs are filled.
This Department of Defense program provides training and work experience for service members nearing the end of their enlistment while also allowing the Town the opportunity to train and evaluate the service member's suitability for potential work.
SkillBridge participants of the Town of Hilton Head Island Firefighter Program must either meet the Direct Hire criteria at the end of their SkillBridge assignment or participate in the next available hiring pool to be eligible for full time employment.
