Paramedic recruitment event a “huge success”

More than 180 paramedic science students attended a recruitment event which has been hailed as "extremely useful".

The session took place last week (Thursday, 28th January) at the University of Hertfordshire and saw stalls set up from a number of ambulance trusts including EEAST.

A mixture of first, second and third year students were able to ask questions directly to people already working in the Trust. A number of EEAST staff hosted a stall including paramedics, HR, and Senior Locality Managers Darren Meads and Steve Davey.

Darren also hosted a presentation to the students in which he explained more on the dedicated mentorship programme in West Hertfordshire. He said: "We have such a fantastic group of people working here at EEAST, and it was great to be able to share that passion, pride and dedication with these students."

Third year student Kirsty said: "It's been extremely useful to be able to hear first-hand what the services had to say, and what support we will get. It was great to speak to qualified paramedics and ask them lots of questions."

Speaking about the session, Darren added: "It's important to run sessions like this to show what we have to offer at EEAST. It's a great opportunity for them [students] to listen to people who are where they want to be. I'm very proud of our teams not just in West Hertfordshire but across the region; hopefully some of the graduates will be inspired to join our team."
