Many of these have completely changed their ‘day job’, stepping up to take on a role with the ambulance service and help people across the North West.
Meet Daniel Cox, who joined us in May 2020. Daniel swapped musical theatre for answering 999 calls, working as an emergency call handler within Estuary Point’s Emergency Operations Centre.
Hi Daniel, welcome to Team NWAS!
Tell us about your job before you started working with us.
In my former role I most recently worked as a professional musical theatre performer recently in CATS the musical, as Mungojerrie and I was formerly the assistant dance captain for Royal Caribbean Cruises.
I have been every lucky to have the opportunity to perform around the world in a variety of shows and when I am based home in Liverpool I teach various styles of dance to pupils of all ages.
What made you want to work at NWAS?
I wanted to work here during the pandemic because I like to challenge myself and push myself out of my comfort zone.
It’s a challenging and diverse role and I have been warmly welcomed into Team NWAS – I even have managed to deliver a healthy baby girl via the telephone which will stay with me forever.
