Still here. The call center is fairly busy. There are breaks and all, but it isn’t a very studying kind of environment. Breaking it down, you have call-takers (dual language, plus some extras thrown in) who do PROQA processing 999 medical calls. You have dispatchers that operate one of the main frequencies each. We’ve got a few... people above them.

9600 isn’t bad... say 1800JD or 2600USD per month. Housing provided. Depending how you live,... if you hop rides, buy a Toyota or a Cadillac... but that is doable for about 1400 paramedics and dispatchers...
Thanks for the reply mate, Yea that's how we used to do it in UAE but we had a lot of downtime between calls, I want to ask and i'm not sure if you have an answer, are the computers we operate on locked down? as in, can we browse stuff or watch stuff while on shift (especially night shift) or are these locked down? don't think i can survive a shift with a locked pc i'd get bored out of my mind. is it strict?

Wait- did you say they’re only paying $2600 USD a month? For a dispatcher?

Probably based upon country of origin
OCNs and such sure, but dutemplar is an AMCIT and I do believe he was made to work in dispatch for a while. Perhaps I am mistaken.

Wailing is Jordanian. I’m not sure of the going rates for Jordanian EMS folks, so whether that’s a good gig, I don’t know.

I just saw a listing for SA CCT medics for Qatar through Global Medical on FB, advertising interviews in Cape Town.

Did something change? I thought the company was Hamad who provided EMS.

Global Medical has always been one of their recruiting companies. It's who recruited me in 2014 or so

The dispatcher / ambulance paramedic (EMT-I kinda) is roughly $2600/month, give or take, plus housing, etc. Give or take, that's not my pay grade. It seems to draw quite a few recruits from the Phillipines, Tunisia, Jordan, Morocco, India,...

My time at the comm center was there as a critical care paramedic, the standard CCP package, just a different assignment.

Global Medical Recruiting handles a lot of recruiting, it's how I came on board also. Hamad Medical Corporation runs the public healthcare for the country, Ambulance Service is one of those "divisions." Primary recruiting seems to be SA, they tried Canada with minimal success, but I haven't seen or heard of US attempts for a while.
