Description: Embark your medical career on a new international voyage of discovery. Join our team of skilled Doctors, Nurses and Paramedics working on any of our 70 ships across our five fleets. Our staff are passionate about providing quality healthcare to our guests and crew while they sail the world creating lasting memories.

Working as a Shipboard Paramedic you will act as a first responder, triaging emergency calls, assessing and treating on scene, and transferring patients to the shipboard medical center for definitive care. Through the use of specific patient group directives, paramedics are able to practice autonomously under the authority of doctors, assessing patients and providing treatment and advice for specific conditions. In additional to first response duties, paramedics work closely with shipboard nurses and doctors to attend to patients attending daily walk-in clinics.

In this role as a Shipboard Paramedic you will perform various technical and non-clinical administrative tasks that support the efficient and safe operation of the medical center under the direction and supervision of the Senior Nurse. Additional duties include equipment checks, medicines and inventory management, participation in drills, audits, inspections and training of other crew members. Technical skills are learned and practiced on board, such as X-rays acquisition, and performing a wide-array of laboratory tests and other procedures.

All medical staff provide high level of customer service, maintaining a professional, dignified, friendly, assertive, and polite manner at all times, towards both guests and fellow crewmembers, and demonstrate performance consistent with the Vision, Mission and Strategic Plan of the organization.

Person Specification: Paramedic applicants must hold an Advanced Life Support Paramedic Qualification (or equivalent) and current registration and licensing to practice with an appropriate governmental or national regulatory body (American paramedics need to hold a national registration as a Paramedic, no EMTs are accepted). Applicants must have at least three years post graduate clinical experience in paramedicine, emergency medicine or other acute care settings including remote medicine, and most recent work experience should be in a clinical setting. Additional requirements include:

* A valid accredited ALS/ACLS certificate prior to joining a vessel
* PALS certification may be required before completing the first year of employment

* A Valid passport
* Eligibility to be issued a United States C1/D Visa (Not applicable for US and Canadian citizens)
* Fluency in English, both conversational and technical
* Computer literacy and experience with Microsoft Windows 7 (or higher) and MS Office programs
* Experience with use of electronic health records is preferred
* Outstanding interpersonal, customer services and communication skills
* A commitment to completing at least two four-month contracts within a twelve-month period

Benefits: Single cabin with private bathroom, stewarding services, access to ship's amenities and entertainment, free gym access and crew welfare programme, cruise benefits, discounted prices onboard shops and SPA
