i have been told that the hse will be recruiting paramedics in autumn 2012 would this be correct ? If so what can i do to be ready for this ,I am going for my ERF course in The next few weeks and am going to do my c1 licience aswell what else is needed ?
Join a voluntary for the experience. Shows interest in the area.
who told you this bk?
I am in my local redcross branch have done a few dutys so far at ofa level at min but doing my erf in the IATI in the next few weeks .Just heard it by word of mouth
I hope it's true, but I'll believe it when I see it!
same here when was the others ?
I'm sure you meant EFR rather then ERF bk1991 but I don't think it's healthy to speculate rumours around here. A million and one things might happen between now and Autumn.
yes EFR or emergency first responder , well sopose your right its all romours till its on paper but have heard it from more than one and there working in hse .
anyone hear any definates about recruitment??
I'd take everything you hear with a pinch of salt. That said, I think it would stand to reason that they would recruit this year. It won't be easy though. A lot of people in PTS positions will be looking to get in on it I would imagine.
Also worth bearing in mind that under the Croke Park Agreement many areas of the public service are recruiting from within the public service and not recruiting externally.
DFB are a good example of this - under the CPA staff can now be re-deployed from areas that are considered to be overstaffed. Apparently DFB recruitemnt is now reserved for existing employees with no external applications invited.
True, but I'm hoping, like last time, it won't stop them. Is ambulance service recruitment not exempt? That said, nothing's ever certain.
To my knowledge it's not exempt - it means other HSE employees get priority over external candidates ( assuming they even invite external applications ).
The ambulance service is largely not affected by the Moratorium on recruitment but redeployment is happening within the hse.
Has anybody an idea with whats happening with this panel?
