Almost 20,000 show interest in student paramedic role

The Trust’s latest recruitment drive to find the life savers of the future, which closed at midnight, has captured the interest of almost 20,000 people.

Since the job opportunity opened on NHS Jobs on Tuesday last week, 19,766 people viewed the vacancy. At the stroke of midnight last night, the vacancy officially closed and, the Trust’s recruitment team are now starting the task of processing an incredible 655 applications. Sadly, a further 714 applications were rejected due to people not meeting the criteria. The Trust’s Recruitment Manager, Louise Harris, said:

“After the success of our social media presence and TV programmes like Ambulance, 999 On The Frontline and Inside the Ambulance all featuring our staff here in the West Midlands, the profession has never been so high profile and well respected.

"As an ‘earn as you learn’ scheme, it opens up possibilities to a wide range of people in the region and beyond and we have seen people apply from different communities and ages which is really positive news for us.

"The next step for my team is to process the applications and shortlist candidates for the assessment day which will take place on Saturday 4th August. Thank you to everyone for your interest in the role and good luck to the applicants!”
