Are you a Paramedic? Join the Welsh Ambulance Service

THE Welsh Ambulance Service is on a mission to recruit more Paramedics.

The Trust is looking to hire both Qualified Paramedics and Graduate Paramedics, who are due to complete their Diploma in Paramedic Science in the summer.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to a ‘Big Bang’ recruitment event in mid-April in Cardiff for an interview and the chance to meet representatives of the service, including Heads of Operations, Locality Managers, Clinical Team Leaders, Advanced Paramedic Practitioners and more.

Chief Executive Tracy Myhill said: “The Welsh Ambulance Service is one of the largest ambulance services in the UK, so working here will be an experience like no other.

“Wales is one of the friendliest places to both live and work, and we’re looking for people to join our team and enjoy the splendour of this beautiful country.

“At the heart of this varied landscape, diverse population and wealth of history, the Welsh Ambulance Service is providing the three million people that live in Wales with first class, clinical care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”

The Welsh Ambulance Service employs more than 3,000 staff and volunteers, and everyone has a role to play in providing a service to a patient.

Our services include the Emergency Medical Service, Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service, Clinical Contact Centres and NHS Direct Wales as well as support service departments who play a vital role in our day-to-day work, from managing our finances and keeping our IT systems working.

Chairman Mick Giannasi said: “Together, we all play a key part in making sure that we can respond to anyone needing our help 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

“Like other ambulance services and the wider NHS, we’re not without our challenges, but we’re taking steps to better the working conditions for staff and make improvements for those who matter the most – our patients.

“If you’re passionate about providing excellent patient care and want to grow and develop with an organisation which is continually transforming services to meet the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve, then we want to hear from you.”

The Trust is also keen to receive applications from ex-military clinicians who are looking to return to civilian life and pursue a career with an ambulance service.

The deadline for the Graduate Paramedic role is Tuesday 5 April.

The deadline for the Qualified Paramedic role is Wednesday 6 April.
