#WeAreEEAST


We are recruiting energetic, passionate, and caring Qualified Emergency Medical Technicians to work for our organisation and to help us deliver the best care possible to a diverse range of patients.

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.

Our ideal candidate will demonstrate experience in dealing with people in challenging circumstances, as well as a range of interpersonal skills and aptitudes and must show an understanding of Trust values / The 5 C’s.

In return for your commitment and energy, we offer a full induction programme, Continuing Professional Development, NHS benefits, and the opportunity to work in a highly dedicated and team-oriented environment across the East of England.

Successful candidates will be required to attend a two week induction course at a designated Trust training centre before starting their role in A&E Operations.

Please note: During the training course it is your responsibility to attend in full, on each day. Accommodation and travel expenses will not be provided so you will need to consider the costs and travel expense of attending these venues. Candidates will be allocated to the training centre nearest to their operational base where possible. Training Centre locations are: Welwyn Garden City, Chelmsford, Norwich & Newmarket.
