Intensive Care Paramedic Jordan Rosser has been awarded the University of Sydney Business School’s Future Leaders MBA scholarship for 2022 as he aspires to play a key role in the future of the NSW Ambulance service.
The 26-year-old paramedic and Duty Operations Manager with NSW Ambulance has experienced more than most at an early stage in his career. He has achieved excellence in providing pre-hospital care, with extensive specialist training in trauma.
He has also invested effort in developing his leadership capacity, now working in a managerial role that gives him oversight over staff, financial resources and emergency incident response.
“I’m grateful to have my potential as a future leader formally recognised by members of an industry that exist outside of my own,” Jordan said.
“This recognition will afford me greater credibility as a young leader in my organisation and an opportunity to assure myself that my aspirations of becoming a contemporary leader with NSW Ambulance are both tangible and attainable.”
Upon completing his Bachelor of Paramedic Practice in 2015, Jordan furthered his training to become an Intensive Care Paramedic and a Grievance Contact Officer with NSW Ambulance. With a key focus on staff welfare, Jordan was awarded NSW Ambulance Employee of the Year in 2019 in recognition of him successfully implanting a state-wide solution to capturing paramedic exposure to psychological injury.
“This information was and still is, used to activate support services for paramedics that assist in preventing PTSD and depression amongst our staff”, Jordan said.
Jordan will commence studies of his part-time MBA in Semester 1, 2022.
The Future Leaders MBA Scholarship is awarded on a yearly basis to an exceptional applicant who successfully completes a statement of motivation, a discussion forum with accompanying reflective essay, and a final interview. The scholarship funds the study of a part-time Master of Business Administration at the University of Sydney Business School, worth over $60,000.
