Details: About the Australian Capital Territory Ambulance Service (ACTAS)

ACTAS is responsible for providing emergency and non-emergency ambulance services to the ACT community. Our emergency operations comprise Graduate Paramedic Interns, Ambulance Paramedics and Intensive Care Paramedics who consistently achieve exceptionally high patient satisfaction scores. As part of the ACT Emergency Services Agency we work closely with the other emergency services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

ACTAS operates a modern fleet of emergency ambulances, non-emergency patient transport vehicles and a range of specialist assets including 4WD, single response and multi-purpose vehicles. In addition to our ground vehicles, ACTAS also provides Intensive Care Paramedics to the SouthCare Toll rescue helicopter. Each month ACTAS attends to in excess of 5,000 incidents in the ACT region.

The role:

ACTAS is seeking applications from recently graduated (or soon to graduate) paramedics to join the service in the position of Graduate Paramedic Intern. To be successful in your application you will:

  • Be a registered paramedic with Ahpra (or eligible to obtain registration),
  • Have successfully completed (or due to complete) a bachelor’s degree in Paramedical Science (or equivalent) that will enable registration as a paramedic in Australia,
  • Be a team player capable of embracing the ACTAS leadership framework, and
  • Meet all criteria stated in the Position Description.

The location:

Well serviced by major shopping precincts, universities, sporting centres and an international airport, the Canberra region has everything that you need for you and your family to make yourselves at home. More than half of the ACT is protected as a nature reserve meaning that bushwalks, mountain bike trails, waterfalls, rivers and spectacular lookouts are all within easy reach of the CBD. Want to venture further afield? The hustle and bustle of Sydney, the tranquillity of the NSW south coast or the excitement of the snow country are all within easy driving distance. More information on the region can be found at
