The recruitment process depends on your qualifications beyond that of a paramedic if youíre talking about applying for one of the jobs currently online?

SAR winch paramedic or ďWinchmanĒ as most would know it from the past (just not pc anymore) is a combination of aviator, rescue specialist and paramedic. Which of those 3 skills is dominant depends on the stage of the SAR mission and is constantly variable. Put simply though, itís the best job in the world, or at least thatís what Iím told ;-).
