We reward progress
Our trainers are all directly employed by MRS
As one of our trainers, and before being allowed to deliver any training, you will undergo an intensive programme where you will learn how to become a trainer and assessor the MRS way.
And as you learn new skills, your salary increases.
Following an initial review of your current training qualifications and competency, the next stage comprises shadowing an experienced tutor delivering courses. You will then enrol onto a Level 3 teaching qualification (to an accredited competency standard). Further teaching experience will be gained by shadowing two experienced tutors on separate occasions. You then will start local delivery of some lessons and only when you have passed a strict assessment, conducted by a qualified internal verifier, will you be deemed sufficiently competent to deliver courses to our customers.
In your first year with us, this training programme typically includes:
Completing the MP Awards First Aid training certification
Completing the TAQA Level 3 qualification
Delivering one training course to the required internal / external standard
Achieving other qualifications that will allow a progression from training instructor to rescue worker. This includes:
Completing initial rescue operative training
Completing the Rescue Worker VC qualification
We will support you and give sufficient time to attend training courses and prepare any portfolios for submission and assessment. There may be some studying and completion of portfolio work in your own time too.
At the end of your first year, or sooner if you progress quicker, and having completed and passed the above, your salary will automatically increase to the next salary band level.
You will also then have the option to progress further and learn new skills to enable you to deliver further types of training, which means your salary increases further. We will continue to support you in this learning and development.
A competitive salary and wide range of other benefits
As you learn new skills your salary increases.
In addition, as a qualified rescue worker you also can earn overtime and on average this equates to around £12,000 pa on top of your basic salary.
As well as competitive salaries we offer:
26 days holidays (plus bank holidays), with an additional day after 10 years’ service
Profit related pay – when the company does well and beats its targets, half of the over performance is split between the employees and half is retained to invest in the business
8% pension scheme contribution
private health care scheme (after 12 months)
24-hour counselling and information service for you and your family
free parking on site

MRS and Elgin Marsh delivered a great and bespoke training course to our operatives on gas monitors. The training was informative, relevant to our work, and kept the team engaged. MRS went above and beyond by creating a bespoke training course for us, and managed to deliver training on our premises with a week's notice. Highly professional throughout, and I would highly recommend them.

I have been attending MRS Mansfield for around 10 years for confined space training (high and medium risk)> The knowledge and professionalism of all the staff is second to none! I would not hesitate to recommend MRS Training and Rescue.

Really good first aid at work refresher course, never got boring good mixture of practical and theory and not just watching power points, more mannequins was better too, plus a couple of competitions made it interesting. Well presented by Phil too. Would recommend to any company. Plus always finished on time and did what it said refreshed everything and told us any changes in first aid since last refresher 👍
