Application for the role of Ambulance Technician
I would like to apply for the role of Ambulance Technician which I have seen advertised in (where) and (when).
I am a qualified Technician and had (how much) experience working with the Ambulance service and I am now looking to continue my career and work in this role.
As part of my experience I have dealt with applying dressings and assessing wounds, ensuring that patient’s airways are open and they are able to breathe properly, I have also used specialised equipment to re start someone’s heart.
I enjoy this challenging role and enjoy working as part of a wider team. It is important that we all work as a team to ensure that we are successful working with some very sick and injured patients.
I am a confident communicator who is dedicated to a role in the ambulance service. I enjoy learning new skills and enjoy the medical side of this role. I am a hands on worker and want to continue developing my career in this area.
I have enclosed my CV which shows my qualifications and skills in detail. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thanking you in advance for reading my CV and letter.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck with your applications.
