Catherine and Michelle are HR Business Partners from The Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust, and part of the award winning 2017 recruitment team of the year (category sponsored by Health Sector Jobs).

The team will be sharing good practice from their ‘Big Bang’ project which developed innovative ways to tackle the 32 paramedic vacancies at the trust.

Their targeted social media campaign resulted in the trust recruiting graduates from 12 of the 27 universities offering the Diploma in Paramedic Science. As of 31 December 2016, there is a 0% turnover for those paramedics recruited at the Big Bang.
