Ambulance Job Roles

There are many career opportunities open to people wishing to develop a career as a frontline ambulance clinician.

Our entry level for joining the service as a frontline clinician is as an emergency care support worker (ECSW).

You may wish to use this route to go on and develop your career and become a paramedic.

However it doesn’t have to stop there as we have innovative paramedic career pathways which could lead you to become a critical care paramedic, dealing with some of our most serious and life-threatening emergencies, or a paramedic practitioner, supporting patients with less serious emergencies but with the ability to work with other healthcare professionals making referrals to ultimately help  keep patients out of hospital.

You could even go on to become one of our leaders, planning services for the future, supporting new and aspiring paramedics through education or influencing policy makers.

The salaries are good too. You can expect to earn more than £29,000 as a paramedic, with further increases as you take on more training and responsibility.

We also have additional support roles such as Control Staff working in our Emergency Operations Centre dealing with 999 calls and also roles helping less critical patients who call NHS 111.
