So I am embarking on a new and exciting and yet some what scary career change as a Ambulance Medic through an excellent company however requiring me to go self employed this of course has brought about certain challenges especially financial to find the money to cover courses and everyday bills such as rent and travel to work etc in the initial first two months before actually starting to receive money in from invoices etc as I work towards my paramedic qualification.
I hate asking for money from anyone however I will have my ECA refresher Frec 4 course of two weeks 8th October to the 19th and then my Blue Light Driving Course Level 3 Qualsafe award in emergency driving which although this course fee is covered by 2 year contract agreement and so won't cost anything this is one held in Rainham Essex so from where I live in Oxfordshire is gonna cost considerable fuel cost and also is 4 weeks long and again any training courses as not paid shifts are complete unpaid so that's 6 weeks plus considerable travel costs before I even start getting a dime back for work from invoices which once submitted at the end of november for about 3 weeks of shifts takes then upto 10 days to be paid with hours and cost having to be approved by line manager and then sent to SSG the parent company in spain to approve.
Hopefully this demonstrates why there is a real need for help however with what I will be earning eventually as the invoices start coming in I am not necessarily asking for donations as most on here if your donation is not anonymous and you wish to be paid back I am happy to agree to do this as the money starts coming in just need some help to live and get to work to earn this money initially!
Should anyone wish confirmation of my employment contract as a self employed contractor I will be more than happy to supply the paperwork I signed with them as a scanned copy on email for any further questions or concerns email firstname.lastname@example.org
