Hi, Pond Life. Are you an official rep of RMI? If you are or have first hand experience, I have some questions I'd like to ask you. Thanks!

Hi waaaemt,
No not an official rep for RMI. Until a couple of months ago I was working as a remote paramedic for International SOS which is the umbrella company for RMI so got to hear of opportunities coming up occasionally.
I'm now working for GP Out of Hours Service in the UK so don't have the connections I once had I'm afraid.
I can try to answer some questions but it wouldn't be about RMI necessarily

Oh nice! So I saw they are hiring for Advanced EMTs. Would you happen to know what locations they deploy to? And how much they pay as well as schedule?
Thanks for any info!

The market has been poor past few years with lots of medics being 'let-go' as oil, gas and gold prices plummeted. Recently the prices and the market has got better. As such most of the positions available have been in high risk countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan. I don't know what the current positions are - you would need to chat with them direct.
Pay is not great nowadays. because the market's being swamped by ex-service personnel coming out of the forces and CP/EMS personnel from places like South Africa both groups who are prepared to accept lower wages than UK, US and Canadian medics. A couple of years back I was offered a hostile area medic job in Northern Yemen for $125 a day. It was to go to different districts in the region all of which had rivalry between each other and the recruitment officer informed me that there was a high risk of being kidnapped. I politely turned it down and a SA medic took the position.
Schedule can be good sometimes 4 weeks on off. But often it is 8 on/off. One contract in Somalia was 8 weeks on 2 weeks off. Again SA medic took that one.

On a side note, we have quite a few SA's here in Qatar. They're making 10-15 times here what they did at home. We're making (after taxes) 3 times...

Plus, they come with a bachelors degree and dabble in other qualifications (unused here, but a selling point in a degree-oriented world.)
