The quota for this year has been filled with next years quota looking like ONE place.
During the initial shift, what is looked for, is working as a medic in singleton role with preference in a sea/off shore environment (ideally with a military background).
The RFA Med Tech enters on the Band C Med Tech Pay Struture (mid PO level) with advancement to Band B (Practitioner) CPO level, on completion of various courses such as the Off Medic Course, FA instructor, Enclosed Rescue, Risk Assessor etc etc. At that stage and after a two month mentorship onboard with a experience Med Tech you will appointed to your first ship as a singleton medic.
As you may realise we are looking for candidates who bring singleton medic skills across into the RFA as the service does not trained up a medic from basic, but add on various additional qualification needed to carry out the role of a RFA Med Tech.

Thank you Mad-Doc this information really helps. I do a lot of RRV shifts so tend to work alone on a car as first paramedic
