15 - Recruitment Advisor - Louise Harris

Tuesday 23rd December 2014 – 11.45am – Murray MacGregor.

The number of people who have shown interest in the Trust’s recruitment campaign for 300 student paramedics continues to climb with almost 1,000 additional views of the job description in the last day.

As of 11.00am this morning (Tuesday), 8,300 people had looked at the advert with 260 people completing their application form and another 300 forms part completed.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 6th January 2015. Successful applicants will train in cohorts, with the first group due to start in March 2015.

Recruitment Advisor, Louise Harris, said: “We are delighted with the response so far. Obviously we want the best people for the job because it is such an important role; truly lifesaving.

“The positions cover our whole region, but we also want to make sure that we also get representations from each of the communities we serve. There are so many cultures in the West Midlands that it is important that we have a workforce that represents that diversity.”

For more information, please look at the NHS Jobs website in the first instance. There are two roles: one for those who already have a C1 on their driving licence and the other for those who have applied for a provisional C1 licence.  You can access details of both here.  If you have any further questions, you can ring the Recruitment Team on 01384 215 555 or contact Louise on twitter @wmaslouharris
