Would you like to play an important part in ensuring lifesaving care is provided to the people of the West Midlands?

We’re looking to recruit 15 Apprentice Ambulance Fleet Assistants who play a vital role in preparing our emergency vehicles.

The job includes preparing, re-stocking and cleaning the ambulance vehicles so that the patient environment in the back of a vehicle, wherever it has been, is still like a clinical area that you would find in a hospital or another healthcare facility.  This vital role also means that our crews can concentrate on their primary focus; treating patients.

Vacancies are available at the following hubs:
• Stoke
• Willenhall
• Coventry
• Warwick
• Hollymoor
• Erdington
• Shrewsbury
• Worcester

As an apprentice you will also complete an NVQ Level 2 in Health Care Support Services.  During the apprenticeship West Midlands Ambulance Service will support you to obtain a full C1 category driving licence which in turn will open up a whole range of job opportunities within the Ambulance Service on completion of the training programme.

In order to apply for this exciting new role you must have a full driving licence (showing no more than 3 points) and the willingness to complete the necessary training for the post.

No prior qualifications or experience are required and focus is on giving people the opportunity to secure permanent roles after the completion of the 12 month fixed term training contract.

The closing date for applications is Thursday 14th May and the anticipated start date is Monday 8th June 2015.
