Graduate paramedic recruitment event sparks interest in ambulance service

Date: 11 May 2017

Networking over lunch.

Over the weekend, future faces of paramedic care attended a special recruitment event held at our headquarters in Melbourn, Cambridgeshire.

The day was really well attended by paramedic science graduates from around the region who benefited from the opportunity to learn practical information on working with us as well as participating in group challenges, clinical exercises and open discussion forums.

And students weren’t shy about asking those ‘curly’ questions directly to people already working in ambulance care: including senior paramedics, HR representatives, driver training assessors and members of the Trust’s Communications team.

Speaking about the event, attendees said it was: “Really nice, helpful … and the Trust seems to value and take care of staff" and that they “Thoroughly enjoyed the day, found it incredibly useful and it reinforced that I want to come to EEAST.”

Denise Stedman, our Recruitment and Resourcing Manager, was very happy with how the day panned out and said: "It's important to run events like this to show what we are proud of and all we have to offer at EEAST, for those looking to join us now and in the future. It's also a great opportunity for them [the graduates] to interact with their peers. Hopefully the event will inspire some of the graduates to join EEAST."
