I’m thinking of doing a paramedic degree. Just wondering what the employability rate is- whether I’ll do the degree and be able to actually get the job as a paramedic in London. Thanks!

Try looking for paramedic job vacancies in London. My impression is that there will be plenty of opportunities.

Pretty easy, but from what I heard from a few friends London is a terrible place to work as a paramedic.

The ambulance service in London is pretty much always recruiting for qualified, experienced paramedics (band 6). I believe there are two recruitment cycles for newly qualified paramedics (band 5) which take place in September and January. I don't know how many they recruit externally (people not graduating from either St Georges, Greenwich, UWL or Herefordshire) but I imagine numbers aren't huge due to 4 universities directly feeding into the LAS.

As for it being a 'terrible place to work', I don't imagine it being much different to other services.
