Paramedic - Qualified

South Australia is an ideal setting for your career, reflecting a free and easy lifestyle. Adelaide is a graceful city fringed with a green belt of parklands and set between rolling hills and golden beaches and South Australia's regional cities are equally vibrant and exciting.

Are you a qualified Paramedic looking for great work life balance?
As a paramedic, you provide a high standard of patient care to the community. Ensuring to always put the 'Patient First' you will be responsible for delivering prehospital care within the SA Ambulance Service Scope of Practice.

In our workplace, we have structured teams that will allow you to be a valued employee. Our team leaders and managers are accessible and are motivated to help you continually grow and develop as a clinician.

With the capacity to work effectively in response to work demands, you will possess excellent decision making skills and the ability to make sound judgments and problem solve. You will use your sound written and verbal communication skills to interact effectively with a broad cross-section of the community.

You will need to hold one of the following to apply:
  • A degree in paramedicine from a university in Australia or New Zealand with successful completion of an internship with a prescribed paramedical service.
  • A diploma or advanced diploma in paramedical science obtained from a training organisation registered under the Training and Skills Development Act 2003 or the Commonwealth or a corresponding law.
  • Another qualification as specified in section 11A in the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (South Australia) Regulations 2010. (For more information about what this includes, refer to our Frequently Asked Questions)
If this sounds like you, now is the time to apply.

Chris's Story - Returning home to South Australia
Chris, a Qualified Paramedic, originally from South Australia, trained as a Paramedic in Victoria, after a long and successful career as an engineer in the health sector. Chris recently returned to South Australia to work for SA Ambulance Service.

Here, Chris explains why he chose to come back to his home state to pursue a career with SA Ambulance Service.


'When you're in a job that you love and when it's one of the best jobs in the world, it no longer becomes work, but a lifestyle. We have a brand new major hospital about to open, many new Paramedic jobs and new ambulance resources to be allocated across metropolitan Adelaide.'

'It's the perfect timing to either come home to South Australia, like I did, or to relocate and be part of a great organisation that's experiencing a growth phase.'

'I would recommend any interstate or overseas experienced paramedics to apply for positions within SA Ambulance Service, especially those wanting to come and experience our great SA lifestyle.'

For Chris, it's all about being able to interact with the patients.

'The job satisfaction that you get as a paramedic is outstanding.  It is highly rewarding to feel like you are putting something back into the community.'

Join Chris and the team at SA Ambulance Service and enjoy an enviable lifestyle.
