Australian Paramedic Simone McILgorm

Australian ParamedicI’m lucky enough to have family based in London, so when I graduated from university in 2013 and heard that London Ambulance Service was recruiting for paramedics, I  just had to apply.

Since I have arrived from Sydney, the reality of having the job and living in London still hasn’t hit yet, but having taken the biggest step in my career, I haven’t looked back. I am already really impressed with the career opportunities available to me, which is great because I enjoy the challenge of learning new skills. I have the opportunity to experience the different ways paramedics work in the city, as well as the chance to mentor a new student in the future. 

As this is my first job, I’ve already learnt so much and I’m really excited about the work that I will do whilst I’m here.
