South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) is holding the first of its annual recruitment open days on Saturday 11 January in Bicester.

If you are job seeker, returning to work after a career break, or perhaps looking to change careers in 2020, then come and meet our staff and recruitment team at our Trust headquarters at Northern House, Talisman Road, Bicester to discover the range of clinical and non-clinical vacancies available.

The event, which runs from 10.00am to 2.00pm and is organised on a drop-in basis, will give people the chance to find out what jobs are currently available, chat to existing staff employed at SCAS and discover what it’s really like to work for one of the country’s best ambulance services. There will be opportunities to see; live demonstrations, Trust vehicles, tours around the clinical co-ordination and contact centres and HR representatives can give advice on how to apply for current vacancies.

For local students currently studying for, or considering their subject options at, GCSEs and A-Levels, members of the education team will be giving talks about the various routes to becoming a paramedic.

SCAS currently has a number of emergency and non-emergency roles, as well as clinical and non-clinical jobs, it is recruiting to. As well as the roles located at the Trust’s headquarters in Bicester, other available roles include those at ambulance stations across Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex.

Further information about full-time, part-time and flexible working options will be available along with details of pay and enhancements, holiday entitlement, career progression and, most importantly, how to apply.

Victoria Dooley, Head of Resourcing at SCAS, said:

“SCAS has one of the best performing emergency ambulance services in the country, as well as providing one of the best NHS 111 services for people needing urgent medical advice. The Trust is also the biggest NHS provider of non-emergency patient transport services in England, providing these services not just in our South Central heartland but also in Surrey and Sussex. Demand for our services continues to grow which means we can offer not just a job, but a rewarding and satisfying career with plenty of opportunities for personal and professional development.”

The Recruitment Open Day is being held at Northern House, Unit 7 & 8 Talisman Business Centre, Talisman Road, Bicester, Oxfordshire, OX26 6HR on Saturday 11 January from 10.00am to 2.00pm.

Staff from Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust will also be on hand to talk to visitors about the roles that are currently recruiting too as well.
