Medic in mining, offshore, construction, manufacturing, hospitality, sports and tourism industries.
Work in the fast-paced and challenging environments, where every day is different. Develop your career and choose the sector that suits your interests, experience and skills. Typically the role of a medic in the mining or industrial sector is that of an Emergency Services Officer (ESO). To find out more about an ESO and what they are trained to do – read this article on our website about ESO’s.
Event medic at sporting events
Be on-call at rugby league games, equine events, football matches, NFL, NRL etc.
Working with a wide range of clubs and contractors, being an event medic can be personally rewarding on so many levels. Reassure spectators and participants alike just by being on-site to administer medical care and even save lives. This type of role would appeal to sports fans who wish to play a bigger part than just being a member of a cheering crowd.
Search and Rescue Volunteer (SES)
One of the positive ways to give back to your community is to volunteer your expertise and knowledge in the community. Being required to work in all-weather conditions in unpredictable situations, you’d utilise your clinical knowledge and critical thinking abilities to provide medical assistance at all hours of the day or night.
