Paramedic Job Vacancies

Being a paramedic you can be sure that your job will not only be interesting, it will be busy too!

You may go from treating a young child with a fever, to leading the care delivered to a patient in cardiac arrest. 

With a wide scope to deliver excellent care, you will be expected to make decisions on your feet while providing first-class treatment, in what are often very emotional and challenging circumstances.

People are the job so you need to enjoy interacting, have great communication skills and empathy.  For many patients you are stepping into often crucial and life-changing times in their lives.


What are the benefits?

  • A minimum 27 days' holiday each year, increasing with service.
  • New NHS employees from April 2008 will be eligible to join the Amended NHS Pension Scheme which provides membership to a final salary scheme with pension linked to pay near retirement. Other benefits include life assurance, dependent benefits, voluntary early retirement, ill-health retirement benefits and the option to increase retirement benefits.
  • Personal and professional development and training opportunities.
  • Childcare voucher scheme.
  • Salary Sacrifice schemes for cars or push bikes
  • Access to occupational health and counselling services.
  • Access to NHS discounts, offering NHS employees a range of money-saving deals.

 

What qualifications do I need?

You will need to have a degree in paramedic science to become a paramedic and be registered with the HCPC. You would be required to apply to one of the four universities which we work with. 

Alternatively you could join our Trust as an Emergency Care Support Worker and work towards securing a placement as a Student Paramedic on one of our internal pathways.
