Fantastic response to student paramedic advert


Monday 27th July 2015 – 3.30pm – Claire Brown.

More than 220 people have so far applied to be life savers since the Trust launched its latest student paramedic recruitment drive last week.

The 70 vacancies went live on NHS jobs at 10.00am on Thursday 23rd July. Within the space of four days, the Trust has already received a staggering 229 job applications.

Louise Harris, Recruitment Advisor, said: “It’s been viewed an incredible 4,201 times on NHS Jobs and, as well as the 229 applications already received, there are also a further 112 live applications online which have yet to be completed and submitted.

“Our recruitment team are now working their way through the hundreds of application forms to begin the process of shortlisting candidates.

“To avoid stumbling at the first hurdle, I would urge applicants to read the application form fully and don’t forget that you need to have applied for your category C1 driving license before you apply for the student paramedic vacancy.

“Please also make sure that you select the appropriate response on the C1 application status question to confirm you have done this to avoid missing out on being shortlisted.

“Thank you and good luck to everyone that has applied so far. If you’re still working on your application, don’t forget that you have until midnight on Thursday 30th July to submit it.”
