Due to internal moves and career progression opportunities within the Trust, we are now looking to recruit new Ambulance Care Assistant 2. As this is no ordinary role, we will be looking for extraordinary people to join one of our 5 week training programmes.

The Role

Ambulance Care Assistant 2 are often seen as entry level opportunities, with many Staff progressing into Emergency Medical Technician or even Paramedic roles. You will already have a real passion for patient care, together with excellent communication and people skills. You will also be a committed team player and relish a job where no two days are the same. Please see the enclosed job description and person specification for further information.

In return, we are keen to support your development and career ambitions with access to high quality training, dedicated time to undertake CPD opportunities and an annual Personal Development Review to ensure that you too can be your best.

In order to progress your application, please include why you are keen to join us as an Ambulance Care Assistant 2, together with details about your experience and skills for the role.

Please note that applicants must hold a full C1 driving license, with a maximum of 3 penalty points and no previous convictions for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol in order to progress to the driving assessment.
