Scale PO3 £40,578 - £43,570 per annum - plus 10% On Call Allowance (£4057)

Based at Training Centre, Droitwich


Are you an experienced Paramedic registered with the Health Care Professions Council?

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service is undergoing significant cultural change as we work to make the organisation more effective, inclusive and transparent. We now seek a talented Paramedic to join our training team at this exciting time.

Reporting to the Head of Training, you will lead the delivery of Pre-hospital care training to operational firefighters.

This training incorporates First Response Emergency Care (FREC) to all operational personnel, first aid courses to non-operational personnel and bespoke training to specialist teams such as our Rope Rescue, Water Rescue and Urban Search and Rescue teams. As an integral member within the training directorate you will be instrumental in the development and delivery of casualty care training for initial and refresher courses such as Road Traffic Collision, Breathing Apparatus and Hazardous Material training.

You will be a strong and inspiring leader with a proven track record of proactively managing change and providing focussed training services. We are seeking a Paramedic with experience in general management of a small team, cultural change and employee relations. Strong interpersonal skills, resilience and an organised approach are essential as the role demands a pragmatic approach in a challenging and changing environment.

The successful applicant will be a registered Paramedic with the Health Care Professions Council. You will have an in-depth and clear understanding of current best practice in Pre-hospital care and Joint Royal College Ambulance Liaison Committee Guidelines.
The role of Paramedic Lead requires an individual with a visible leadership style, excellent influencing skills and personal values aligned to those of Hereford & Worcester Fire And Rescue Service.

Whilst you will be required to work from our Training Centre, the role requires travel throughout the Two Counties and therefore a driving licence is essential.

As a caring organisation, we promote an environment of inclusivity and learning and can offer an excellent package, including:
• Scale PO3 salary £40,578 - £43,570 per annum. An additional payment of 10% (£4057) is payable to provide on call advice to operational fire crews.
• 28 days annual leave entitlement increasing to 33 days after five years’ continuous service (plus bank holidays).
• Access to a local government pension scheme.
• Flexi-time scheme allowing you to have an element of flexibility over your working hours.
• Free car parking.

If you can meet this challenge, we want to hear from you.
