Service to attend Diversity Careers Show 2009

The London Ambulance Service will be an exhibitor at this year’s Diversity Careers Show on Friday (20 November).

The event is run by Square Peg Media, in association with Stonewall, and is billed as the UK’s biggest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) careers fair.

On the day there will be a member of staff from the Service’s 999 control room available to answer questions about working for the Service and in particular about the role of answering 999 calls and dispatching an emergency response to patients. Staff from the recruitment team and equality and inclusion department will also be at the event.

Equality and Inclusion Manager Janice Markey said: “The Service welcomes applicants from all communities and we want to be a truly inclusive place to work. We are looking for self-motivated, enthusiastic people from all backgrounds who care about making a difference. This careers event is an excellent opportunity for people to find out more about the career opportunities that are open to them in the ambulance service.”

Up to 5,000 people are expected to attend the free event which will run from 11.00 am to 5.30 pm at the Grand Connaught Rooms, on Great Queen Street, London.
