The North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust is sending out a call for more people from across our region to join its life-saving team. NEAS is holding a recruitment day in Gateshead on Saturday June 10 for people to discover more about the job opportunities available in the service right across the region.
Demand for this is sky high already, so book your place at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/.../north-east-ambulance... if you are interested.
The Government is doing so much to boost the ambulance service to get back to pre-pandemic levels. Nationally, ambulance response times are the fastest they have been for almost two years which is fantastic.
I want to see this go even further though. I am delighted that 800 new ambulances are coming in 2023/24, but we people to staff this huge increase! Could it be you?
Salaries go up to £75,000 depending on the job, experience and qualifications. Apprentices start on £18,000 and an average paramedic will earn mid-£40,000 inc. overtime. Well worth getting yourself down there to find out what you could do and make a difference.
