You will need experience of pre-hospital treatment of accident victims including providing first aid in remote and isolated locations. The successful candidate will need to have fluent English language skills to be able to work in this role, with Arabic language skills desirable.

You should be aware that MAG’s areas of operations are often remote with basic amenities and can be in tough working environment with field deployments lasting up to 3 months at a time.
