The NEAS apprentice - you're hired?
Opportunities with the North East Ambulance Service
NEAS chatted with people of all ages from across the region
this week interested in about 20 apprenticeships, working
alongside our customer service team.
The successful applicants will gain a qualification through
Gateshead College, and be paid £100 per week.
The new Patient Transport Service (PTS) apprentices and PTS
contact centre customer service apprentices will support the
organisation to deliver health care services across the North
Joanne Dodson, from Gateshead College, said: "An apprenticeship
is a fantastic way to build a career by gaining skills and training
while receiving a regular wage. The opportunity to join NEAS is
fantastic news for anyone looking for a public-facing role which
provides new challenges every day."
Susan Richardson, Head of Workforce Development at NEAS, said:
"We're looking for enthusiastic and focused individuals to join us
and help the organisation continue to deliver the right care, in
the right place at the right time across the whole of the North
"We're investing in people from the local community and
equipping them with the skills to be able to complete vital roles
within the organisation. We feel apprenticeships are a fantastic
way to recruit loyal and long-serving employees who will be able to
deliver a consistently high service to our customers and
