The chance to become a lifesaving paramedic has piqued the interest of no fewer than 10,000 people. The staggering figure shows how many people have logged onto NHS Jobs  to have a look at the person specification to become one of 300 student paramedics with West Midlands Ambulance Service in 2017. Of those almost 700 have either completed their application or started it.

“In addition, we will be taking part in a careers event along with Sandwell College and Jobcentre Plus on Saturday 28th November between 10.00am – 2.00pm at the College’s Central Campus on Spon Lane West Bromwich.  You can hear about the opportunities as a student paramedic, an ambulance fleet assistant and with our non-emergency patient transport service.”
