Ready to help us save lives?

There has never been a more exciting time to join us. Over the last 10 years the role of frontline ambulance crew has changed dramatically and continues to evolve to meet a growing demand for increasingly flexible emergency and urgent healthcare.

Working for us

For those with drive and ambition SCAS offers many diverse clinically focussed career opportunities to deliver care to the communities we serve. These include working as a community paramedic in primary care, as an emergency care practitioner working in both the emergency and GP out of hours settings, or becoming a dispatcher in our modern control centres.

Our non emergency services staff also enjoy greater clinical training and opportunities than previously, with many responding to certain types of emergency calls, such as cardiac arrests, to help more patients more quickly across the region.

Frontline services apart, there are many opportunities to work with us as part of our vital support team at our centres in Bicester and Otterbourne.


A just and learning culture in SCAS

Colleagues who are cared for and valued are enabled to provide the right care, first time, every time. That is why we strive to foster a culture that balances compassion, learning, fairness and accountability; a ‘just and learning culture’.​

This means that we: ​

  • Put people before process, prioritising wellbeing​
  • Treat people as individuals, recognising we all have different needs and circumstances​
  • Lead with compassion, civility and kindness ​
  • Focus on learning when things go wrong​
  • Listen to and support employees​

The result is that we encourage safe working practices, improve patient care and make South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust a great place to work.​
