BUDDING paramedics are being invited to a careers open day with West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS).

On March 13 there will be opportunities to get advice on the entry criteria and assessment processes, speak to the recruitment team, meet current staff and managers and ask questions regarding these roles at Copthorne Hotel in Brierley Hill between 10am and 4pm.

“At the event, attendees will be able to meet our staff involved in every element of the process from recruitment, to training to our operational colleagues.

“The team will be on hand to answer any questions that potential applicants may have and there will also be the opportunity to get advice on the assessment process as well as testing out our fitness equipment and seeing our operational vehicles.”
