POLICE officer Alesi Waqa hopes to venture into a new career of saving people.

The national netball rep is optimistic about securing a career with the National Fire Authority following a recruitment drive on Friday.

Ms Waqa was among about 500 young men and women who turned up at the drive at the Suva Fire Station in Walu Bay.

She has spent the past five years in the police force and she believes it's time for a change in career.

"During these years at the force, part of my duty has been to protect people," she said..

"Now, I want to save lives, especially infants, and I believe this would be the right place for it.

"I saw the advertisement in the paper a few weeks ago and I applied — I consider myself lucky now that I have been called in to be part of the recruitment."
