London ambulances seek more diverse workforce

The London Ambulance Service is recruiting through the ethnic media in a
drive to promote a diverse workforce.

The service needs 400 ambulance technicians – staff who go on emergency
call-outs and provide care – and wants to attract people from a diverse range
of backgrounds.

HR director, Wendy Foers, said: "We continue to work to improve patient
care and emergency response times, and to achieve this we need to recruit more
ambulance technicians.

"We also want to recruit from the diverse population of London to
ensure our workforce reflects the communities we serve."

Ambulance technicians train for 15 weeks on £16,557, rising to £18,200 after
training and to £22,200 after a year’s assessment.
