At Ambulance, together our staff and managers developed our core set of values. These are the professional and personal values and behaviours that we as employees of Ambulance agree to uphold.

Treating each other and our patients with respect is one of our core values.  Our aim is to foster a positive and healthy workplace and we have introduced a number of initiatives to help us achieve this goal. One of our key initiatives is the program of Healthy Workplace Strategies designed to improve the workplace environment, to help staff resolve workplace issues and to simplify policies and procedures for managing workplace concerns.

But don't just take our word for it....

We also understand that people are generally resilient, but at times our reactions to events can be overwhelming, persistent and may disturb our life activities, relationships (personal and work) and day to day functioning.  For this reason we have a number of staff support programs in place. We encourage our staff to ask for help.

Developing and improving the leadership skills of our managers is also a key priority. It is essential that all our managers have the skills and capability to effectively manage and to lead a competent and professional workforce.

Our patients are the centre of all that we do. We strive to continually improve our service and the care we give to our patients.

Despite emergency ambulance services being one of the most valued health services to the community, there is relatively little research into ambulance practice. That's why we are proud to have established the first dedicated research facility located within an ambulance service in Australasia. The Ambulance Research Institute is focused on clinical, educational, and organisational research projects with the aim of establishing an evidence-based foundation for the growth and development of paramedic and ambulance practice.

To allow paramedics to do their job well, we support them with the right equipment. We constantly review and update the medical equipment our staff use in providing lifesaving care to patients. We also have one of the largest and most modern public ambulance fleets in the world, made up of over 1,500 vehicles, of which over 850 are front line ambulance vehicles.

Do we sound like people you would choose to work with?

If you care about people, then you already know how good it feels to help others. If you want to become a paramedic then you most likely care about others and you're likely to enjoy a rewarding career with us. 

A career with Ambulance will provide opportunities to learn and grow professionally.  Ambulance paramedics can specialise in areas such as intensive care paramedics, extended care paramedics, special casualty access team, aeromedical services, snow operations, rapid response, rescue, counter disaster to name just a few.
