” Siren is a great company to work for! I have done my fair share of time as a truck driver and builder and numerous other part time roles alongside my time in the LFB. Working as a First Aid and Fire safety trainer has meant there are always jobs available when I visit the trainer portal. Having weekly pay really helps me out as well! – Ian Jackson

“My previous work experience includes end of life care and midwifery, which means shift work. So, having a long break from work to care for my family, I did not feel those job patterns were going to work for us. I looked at First Aid Training as a way to use my previous experience and carry on helping people. I initially asked Siren for advice, not thinking I would be good enough for them to actually use me! They were amazing – not only with the advice but their excellent training. They gave me the skills I needed and got me working really quickly; but honestly it was more than that – they helped me see that my previous work experience, plus the work break I have had raising the family is relevant and important in this work. They also made me welcome as part of the team and really do help me to get work that suits my current family life with no pressure. A rarity in the work place. If you are thinking of using your skills to teach first aid training, Siren really is the place to come to.” – Sonia Sinclair
