THE ambulance service is hosting a recruitment open day in Otterbourne on Saturday.

South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) is inviting job seeks, those returning to work after a career break, or perhaps looking to change careers in 2020 to come and meet staff and recruitment team to discover the range of clinical and non-clinical vacancies available.

The event runs from 10am to 2pm at Southern House, Sparrowgrove, Otterbourne.

It has been organised on a drop-in basis and will give people the chance to find out what jobs are currently available, chat to existing staff employed at SCAS and discover what it is really like to work for the service.

There will be opportunities to see; live demonstrations, trust vehicles, tours around the clinical co-ordination and contact centres and HR representatives can give advice on how to apply for current vacancies.

For local students currently studying for, or considering their subject options at, GCSEs and A-Levels, members of the education team will be giving talks about the various routes to becoming a paramedic.

Staff from the University of Portsmouth and Oxford Brookes University will also be at the event to talk to anyone considering a paramedic science degree or how further education can help your career.
