Building a world-class ambulance service for a world-class city

 

With 8.5 million people from all nationalities and backgrounds living in 620 square miles and around 5,060 calls a day, almost a quarter of which are immediately life-threatening (Category A), there’s no such thing as a routine job, let alone a ‘normal’ day for the London Ambulance Service.

 

Factor in the world’s busiest airport on our doorstep, the enormous underground network, the busy tourist sites, and the major public and cultural events we deal with and you’ll quickly see why we place so much emphasis on finding the right people to carry out the vital work that we do. Working in London will give you a level of experience which is second to none with the opportunity to really develop your practice as a paramedic.

 

We strive to provide our patients with the level of care that distinguishes us as a great service provider. We are now taking fewer patients to hospital by using more alternative care pathways, treating more patients in their home and giving more advice to callers over the phone. If you’d like to join us in improving our service in London the key skills and experience required are:

  • To be a registered paramedic with the Health Care Professions Council UK (or be eligible to register) You must have successfully completed your paramedic studies or be in your final year and due to graduate by (Date) to be eligible to apply.

  • Possess a current full manual driving licence, valid in the UK. (On arrival in the UK you will need to be able to convert your license to a UK license and obtain C1 category), have recent & demonstrable driving experience, and have no more than three demerit points or equivalent in your home country.

 

In return, we can offer you the following benefits:

• Full conversion to London/UK paramedic requirements – this includes a comprehensive induction and supportive education programme.

• Assistance with relocation costs (for example flights and cost of transporting personal effects for you)
• Blue light ( Emergency) driving training
• Protected training and continued professional development
• A Clinical career path which is well established and expanding

In addition you will receive 27 days annual leave rising to 29 days after 5 years and 33 days after 10 years plus access to childcare vouchers, NHS Pension scheme, cycle scheme and season ticket loan for public transport.

We will be accepting applications from candidates that are experienced or newly qualified. You will need to be in a position to directly submit your HCPC application and pay the HCPC Scrutiny fee should you be successful. You can expect to be added to the HCPC register within 60 working days of paying the scrutiny fee (please HCPC guidance attached). If your application for this role is successful, you would need to be available to attend a Face to Face interview and we expect these to take place in; Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland during February 2019.

In your supporting statement, please state if you would prefer to be interviewed in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth or Auckland (with no guarantee of outcome). Should you be successful in all stages of the recruitment process and be offered employment with us, it is expected that you will start with us in June/July/August 2019.
