Paramedic QLD Employment and Salary Expectations
The Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) is one of the world’s largest ambulance services in the world today. That means many paramedic QLD opportunities exist to service over 4 million people in an area covering almost 1.8 million square kilometres.
Paramedic QLD estimates that 2,780 paramedics are currently employed by the QAS stationed in over 260 response centres state-wide. These simple facts indicate the growing need of paramedic QLD services and the importance of recruiting more paramedics in the coming years.
Currently, the QAS offers two categories of employment for qualified paramedics: Permanent Full-time and Casual employment. Advanced Care Paramedics and Intensive Care Paramedics are the most common positions held within the Queensland Ambulance Service. Paramedic QLD does acknowledge that there may be slight variations depending on specific situations and locations.
