This is an ideal entry level position for someone who is looking to establish a career as a paramedic. Or you may just be looking for a challenge and a career change. Whatever your reasons, as an ECSW you will be expected to support senior clinicians to deliver excellent care. With no two days the same, you will be responding to medical emergencies, undertaking hospital transfers, urgent hospital admissions and other allocated operational activities as required.
You will be working as part of a team, responding to often very distressing and challenging situations, therefore you will need to be an effective communicator, be a team player and be able to deal and support people in difficult times in their lives.
