Be a part of SPA HQ in 2018! Applications now open!

It’s time to apply! Heading into 2018 we have made some changes to the position portfolios! This will see 17 positions become available for the SPA Executive Committee. These roles are very self-guided and require self-motivated and driven people to complete the roles successfully. Take a quick peek at our 2018 Committee Position Descriptions here!

"What is it again?"

The Committee is a team of approximately 17 Paramedic Students & recent Graduates from Australia and New Zealand. Each representative has their own role to complete on their own time. These roles are very self-guided and require self-motivated and driven people to complete the roles successfully. Please remember, these are volunteer roles.

"Why would I want to be involved?"

Not only is the Committee a great way to meet like-minded students from across Australia & NZ, getting involved in SPA creates opportunities for you to network with paramedics, clinicians and professionals alike from around the world as well as being apart of a bigger picture facilitating and creating opportunities for peers from a local to a global level.

"Before I apply, is there anything I should know?"

Most roles require about 5 hours p/week of your time. This can vary, and will increase coming up to SPAIC time, generally at approximately September/October but subject to change. Larger roles such as Convenor and Co-Chairs are likely to require a larger commitment, such as 10 hours p/week. In any role, you will be expected to attend the SPAIC2018 conference which is to be held in Adelaide in late September/early October, to help run 11th Annual Event! Lastly, and arguably most importantly, you should know that you will be a part of a fun, enthusiastic, professional team of students aiming to inspire and improve the student paramedic experience!

"Where do I apply?!"

To apply, all you need to do is fill out the application and send it via email to by midnight, 12 November 2017. The application form can be downloaded through the link below. Applicants will be notified of results within 2 weeks of applications closing.
