Online careers event to give insight into the ambulance service

Jamie Arrowsmith – Thursday 21st October 2021 – 2.15pm.

West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) is teaming up with the The Prince’s Trust to host an online careers event for anyone aged 16-30 who is unemployed or currently working or studying less than 14 hours per week.

The event, which will take place online at 4pm on Thursday 4th November, is aimed at giving an introduction into careers available within the ambulance service.

As well as hearing about different options and career routes at West Midlands Ambulance Service, the session will also allow participants to learn more about The Prince’s Trust and the support it can offer, such as help with writing CVs, interview techniques and how to fill in an application form.

WMAS Recruitment Manager, Louise Jones, said: “This is a really good opportunity for people who are looking for employment to come and find out more about various roles we can offer and exactly what those jobs entail.

“We are really keen to tailor the event to those who wish to take part, so anyone who registers a place will be sent a form asking exactly what it is they want to get out of the event.

“It is important for us to make sure we are answering the questions potential employees want answering, allowing us to help young unemployed people within our community.”

Kay Bradley, Health and Social Care Youth Development Lead, added: “This is a great opportunity to see what roles West Midlands Ambulance Service has to offer.

“Additional to that, The Prince’s Trust will be there to support you on your journey, from application to interview and for six months post programme support, regardless of your interview outcome.

“One of our past participants of the programme told me ‘I greatly appreciate the assistance of The Prince’s Trust in the application stage, I have no doubt that your help made my application stand out from the rest.’

“We are really pleased to be working in partnership with WMAS and look forward to attending this event.”

The session will take place on Microsoft Teams and last for approximately 90 minutes. It will feature presentations from both WMAS and The Prince’s Trust whilst there will also be the chance to ask questions of representatives from both organisations.
