The BVI Health Services Authority (BVIHSA) — the body that runs the territory’s largest public medical facility, Peebles Hospital — are experiencing a shortage of Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs).
The Health Services Authority said EMTs serves as a “critical link between the scene of an emergency and the healthcare system” considering that they provide out-of-hospital emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients.
BVIHSA is now seeking persons to fill the vacancies in that department and said they are willing to train all successful applicants.
“We have several EMT positions to fill and we are looking for individuals who are up to the challenge,” Human Resources Manager for the state-owned medical organisation, Deborah Leslie said.
“Our HR team will be conducting interviews and assessments, so we want persons to bring their A-game,” she said.
Interested persons are asked to attend a four-hour job fair on at Peebles Hospital on Saturday, February 23 at 9 in the morning.
A media release from the BVIHSA said job seekers must be dressed in business attire and must carry relevant documents such as a police record, two letters of recommendation, copy of their high school diploma, and a copy of the picture page of your passport.
Persons are also required to have a valid driver’s licence, and good reading, writing and communication skills. The BVIHSA said applicants must be computer literate, able to work long flexible hours, lift at least 75 pounds, and have the ability to make swift decisions.
