About the role and our team

We are looking for a motivated Paramedic to join our dedicated team within the Isle of Man Ambulance Service, to provide high quality pre hospital care Island-wide.

Working as part of the integrated Urgent and Emergency care services you will carry out clinical patient care; responding to 999 calls and urgent community pre-hospital care requirements. Some of your responsibilities will include delivering treatment such as drug therapies, performing advanced clinical interventions, undertaking emergency driving, daily vehicle and equipment checks, and restocking supplies and equipment.

The Isle of Man Ambulance Service is a unique place to work; you will work in partnership with colleagues across Manx Care and the wider emergency services to provide high quality and timely care to the Island’s population.

We seek to innovate in our approaches to health and care and as such you’ll be part of the longer-term transformation of our services to better meet the needs of the island’s population and serve our community.

Team work and the Health and Safety of all staff is our key focus and we are very supportive of each other.

What can this role offer me?

By joining us you’ll be stepping away from some of the UK NHS pressures and demands, as the Island’s healthcare system is similar to, but separate from, the UK NHS.

We are a proactive service and embrace the development of skills and practice. You will have access to many opportunities for development, including training Emergency Care Assistants, participating in induction training and mentoring new team members.

You’ll have access to all the great courses the Isle of Man Government offer, through LEaD, our Learning, Education and Development Service.

Manx Care is committed to creating smoke-free spaces and is ‘proud to be smoke free’ as part of the overall Isle of Man Smoke Free 2030 ambition. As of April 1st 2021 smoking is no longer permitted on our Manx Care sites. For support and advice on abstinence from smoking, please contact Quit4You on 642404 or Quit4You@gov.im
