Due to expansion and growth, we are currently looking for enthusiastic and highly motivated individual’s to join the Resource Operations Centre (ROC) teams in Exeter.

The ROC is an integral part of South Western Ambulance Service and is one of the SWAST 5 – which are the 5 departments that provide a critical function in delivering patient care.

The Resource Coordinator role is based around the maintenance and administration of the Global Rostering System (GRS). The system co-ordinates personnel records, rota patterns and staff abstraction’s to produce invaluable organisational data, and all important projected resourcing levels.

This role requires constant monitoring of A&E staff resource levels as well as analysis of abstractions to ensure optimum numbers of A&E vehicles.  Using the information from GRS, the Resource Coordinators process Annual Leave requests, populate training courses and proactively work to improve any shortfalls in staff cover.

As this is an Emergency Service, the post holder will be required to work between the hours of 0700-1900, and be prepared to work their share of weekends and public holidays. This is approximately 1 weekend every 4 weeks till 1700, which attracts an additional payment for unsocial hours when worked.

A fantastic role to that opens the door to all aspects of the South Western Ambulance Service. Providing progression through supervisory roles, line management, data analysis and project management.

If you have talent in planning and organisation, and are energised by teamwork and the NHS, this could be just what you are looking for.
