London Ambulance Service NHS Trust is the busiest emergency ambulance service in the UK with over 5,000 staff who works across a wide range of roles. Our service operates over an area of approximately 620 square miles across London based in 70 ambulance stations. 


We serve more than eight million people who live and work in the London area. Our main role is to respond to emergency 999 calls, getting medical help to patients who have serious or life-threatening injuries or illnesses as quickly as possible.


However, many of our patients have less serious illnesses or injuries, and do not need to be sent an ambulance on blue lights and sirens. Often these patients will receive more appropriate care somewhere other than at hospital and so we provide a range of care to them, recognising that many have complex problems or long-term medical conditions. We also provide clinical assessments over the phone to more callers with less serious illnesses and injuries. 


As an integral part of the NHS in London, we work closely with hospitals and other healthcare professionals, as well as with other emergency services. We are also central to planning for, and responding to, large-scale events or major incidents in the capital. 


In everything we do, we are Respectful, Professional, Innovative and Collaborative. 


Respectful - Caring for our Patients and each other with compassion and empathy. Championing quality and diversity. Acting fairly.


Professional - Acting with honesty and integrity. Aspiring to clinical, technical and managerial excellence. Leading by example. Being accountable and outcomes orientated.


Innovative - Thinking creatively. Driving value and sustainable change. Harnessing technology and new ways of working. Taking courageous decisions.


Collaborative: Listening and learning from each other. Working with partners. Being open and transparent. Building trust.



The London Ambulance Service Department of Clinical Education & Standards is recruiting to the new role of Learner Engagement and Partnerships Manager.


This role will have oversight for a varied portfolio, providing professional advice, expertise and strategic leadership for partnership engagement, practice placements and improving the learner journey within the Trust.


They will also be the point of contact for ensuring that learners in the London Ambulance Service are provided with timely and effective support and guidance for issues and concerns beyond their day to day educational needs.


The post holder will provide support and leadership for the Practice Placement Coordination team and, with the support of the Link Tutors, will be responsible for ensuring that practice placement programmes remain fit for purpose and support the progression of the Paramedic profession.


There will be direct involvement with improving relationships between the Trust, our partner education providers, practice placement centres, and other stakeholders to ensure a strong and responsive alliance for future workforce needs.


The post holder and their team will support the Trust to maximise clinical apprenticeships, and act as the point of contact for internal and external requests associated with clinical education programs and facilities.


They will also have responsibility for coordinating the digital learning framework and communications strategy for Clinical Education and Standards (CE&S).


 Interview dates: 7th, 8th 12th and 14th November 2018

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
