Great healthcare requires great people. That's why we are doing everything we can to recruit committed, skilled people - and to make sure we support our new and existing employees, so they choose to stay with us.

Rated outstanding for caring by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), The East of England Ambulance Trust covers six counties - Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. We cover 7,500 square miles and serve a population in excess of 5.8 million people. With such a diverse geographical area, we cover busy cities, rural locations and seaside resorts and our services are tailored to meet the needs of each community's differing medical and environmental needs.

We offer a great working environment and a comprehensive employment package - which ranges from professional support to benefits for you and your family.

In return for your skill, commitment and energy, we offer a full induction programme, continuing professional development, and the opportunity to work with a highly dedicated team across the east of England.

You will also have the chance to shape the service: our frontline clinicians and other colleagues have unique insights about how we can improve the quality of our care and our working environment.

We'll support you if you want to be involved in research aimed at improving patient care and safety.

You will also have the chance to help us develop new referral pathways or to work in new roles or for other NHS organisations. We work closely with our commissioners to ensure that innovative ideas developed by Trust staff are tested out.

All this is underpinned by a dedicated quality improvement team to coordinate our efforts to support our frontline staff.

#WeAreEEAST

We are looking for passionate, committed, and caring HCPC Registered Paramedics to work within our organisation to deliver the best patient care possible.

East of England Ambulance Trust is looking for professional clinicians to join us in order to continue to deliver outstanding compassionate care. We know how challenging both the ambulance environment is, and being a clinician working remotely can be, but importantly rewarding. We use the national clinical practice guidelines, local guidelines and our clinical app to support your practice along with access to a clinical advice line. Our clinicians are trusted to give the care they assess and consider are appropriate to meet their needs.

We need our staff, like you, to be part of improving care to patients through individual practice and through delivering our clinical strategies like our end of life, or improving cardiac arrest survival. We have a dedicated quality improvement team and a new strategy to help good ideas be explored, developed and implemented. We have a great success in safeguarding our most vulnerable patients, with over 4,000 referrals per month. The Trust is extremely research active and encourages individuals to be involved in research to improve patient care. We have active engagement with our commissioners to explore new ways of working and pathways of care. This includes opening up referral pathways and rotational opportunities for staff in other roles or organisations.

We will Trust you to be the best clinician you can, and make appropriate decisions in the best interests of the patients and communities you serve.

The most important part, above all, is for you to be part of this.
