I am undertaking the Institute of Leadership & Management Level 5 Award as an employee of Leicestershire Fire & Rescue Service (LF&RS) in my role as Delivery Partner Manager of the Prince’s Trust Team programme.

The fire stations operate a flat structure in that watches consist of a number of fire-fighters who have a Watch Manager who reports to a Station Manager.
Within any large organisation teams are set up to manage projects and they operate autonomously until the project is complete. Such recent projects within LF&RS include the Northern and Retained Reviews.
Even though this can be confusing with several types of structure within one organisation it ultimately serves the purpose of meeting the needs of the organisation.
Within LF&RS there are seven different management roles which are attributed to the operational side (support staff managers are aligned accordingly but not attributed with the title):
Chief Fire & Rescue Officer Deputy Chief Fire Officer and 2 Assistant Chief Fire Officers Area Managers
Responsible for strategic decisions
Group Managers Station Managers
