London Ambulance Service NHS Trust is the busiest emergency ambulance service in the UK with over 4,500 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 will provide Care, Clinical excellence and commitment.
Care - Helping people when they need us; treating people with compassion, dignity and respect; having pride in our work and our organisation.
Clinical excellence - Giving our patients the best possible care; leading and sharing best clinical practice; using staff and patient feedback and experience to improve our care.
Commitment -Setting high standards and delivering against them; supporting our staff to grow, develop and thrive; Learning and growing to deliver continual improvement.
Multiple vacancies Working as a Vehicle Resource Centre Co-ordinator will mean that you work as part of a team, to effectively resource vehicles and equipment, across the London Ambulance Service, which will directly impact on the Trusts ability to provide patient care to the highest level possible and meet current performance standards.
This will involve acting as a focal point for all Operational Support, allowing users of the Vehicle Resource Centre the facility of a one-stop-shop. This requires sourcing equipment, planned maintenance of vehicles, enquiries, requests and reporting information and actions. Essential to this role is the ability to prioritise work and meet deadlines whilst maintaining quality standards and remaining calm under pressure. You will need to have experience in understanding rota systems as well as having the ability to produce and maintain accurate records. You must be able to work flexible hours, outside of the core hours, which will include nights, weekends and bank holidays at short notice.
You will need to have experience of working in both a customer service and fleet environment.
You will need to be computer literate with a good knowledge of computer systems and software packages, including Microsoft Windows, Word and Excel and have good communication skills.

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.
