About the Role
We are looking for a Senior Paramedic to join our Senior Management team at Ambulance HQ.
You will join a small but progressive team managing your own workload. This position will provide you with the opportunity to progress in many fields of work areas and covers aspects of operational command of the service. This will include: strategic planning, multi-agency planning and liaison, training and development, human resources, clinical governance and risk management, as well as the opportunity to remain operational providing Paramedic response and Duty Officer cover (approximately 25% of the role).
Why join us?
By joining us you’ll be stepping away from NHS pressures and demands, as the Island’s healthcare system is similar but separate to the UK NHS.
The Isle of Man has been praised for its effective response to the global pandemic. Currently, due to the lack of cases in the community, people on the Island are enjoying a life free of social distancing regulations.
You’ll be part of developing and shaping the service, whilst continuing your professional development and pushing boundaries for clinical skills.
We are very supportive of CPD and fund courses up to master’s level. You’ll have opportunities to take part in our regular training exercises with other emergency services, as well as in house courses.
You will also have access to our education and training centre, Keyll Darree, based at Noble’s Hospital, which offers a medical library, study and seminar rooms, a lecturer theatre and a simulation suite.
With the Health Service transformation project on the Island in progress, this is an exciting time as we see the focus move onto community service and health promotion. We expect this to produce great opportunities for clinical skill set expansions within our service. You will also enjoy access to great equipment, vehicles and resources.
