We are always interested in recruiting new members to join our team. ScoutMed members are passionate about providing high-quality medical cover for events, working as one integrated, enthusiastic team, we hope to be able to welcome you to the unit.
Clinical members look after, and provide treatment, to individuals at the events we cover. Our current members come from a variety of backgrounds; some work in an ambulance or hospital environment, others have experience in providing event medical cover, and some have a first aid background from work or helping with a voluntary organisation.
We do ask that all our clinical team members hold a current first aid/medical/pre-hospital qualification that meets or exceeds level D of the Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine Framework of the Faculty of Prehospital Care, Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh)
If you don't currently hold such a qualification, than ScoutMed may be able to help you obtain this, have a look at the Trainee First Responder Role, and submit an application if you are interested in this route.
We also welcome applications from those who have demonstrable pre-hospital/event medical care experience. Perhaps you are training to be a health care professional, recently retired from a health care role, or have gained experience in another team, then please drop us an email with your background and details to email@example.com and we will be in touch as to how we can help and support your application.

General Commitment levels
We understand that everyone has different demands on the time they have available to volunteer with us, and that this can change from year to year. To help set a baseline we ask that members aim to commit 5 days of support over a two year period. As with all Scout Active Support Units, you will need to be 18 or older to join.
Scout Training and Policies
Like all adult volunteers with the Scouts, joining ScoutMed means agreeing to the various rules and training requirements of The Scouts, this covers Safeguarding, DBS, Safety etc. If you are new to Scouting you can find information on the Scouts website under "Info for Volunteers". We will also help and guide you through the various steps needed.
Joining Form and what's next
If you are interested in joining the unit please add you details to our joining form here, we will aim to get back to you within two weeks. You will then be invited to an informal meeting with us so that you can ask any questions and we can explain how we work in more detail, discuss any training requirements and anything else needed to get you set-up as a member of the unit. We will also try to introduce you to an existing unit member, local to you, that can help with any ongoing questions and act as an initial mentor whilst you get used to our operating policies and procedures.
