London Ambulance Service covers an area of 620 sq. miles, serves one of the world’s most dynamic and diverse cities and is the busiest ambulance service in the UK. We handle over 1.9 million emergency calls from across the capital and attend more than 1.2 million incidents every single year as well as delivering a 24 hour NHS 111 Integrated Urgent Care Service in South East and North East London that we estimate will respond to around 1.4million urgent care calls by the end of the year.


We employ over 6,000 staff, including volunteers, across London to respond to the health needs of over eight million people who live, work and travel in the capital.

We work closely with our NHS partners and are commissioned by 32 clinical commissioning groups spread across 5 sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) and NHS England for our specialist services. We work alongside London’s hospital, mental health and specialist trusts, as well as the five STPs across Greater London.


In addition we work in partnership with the other emergency services, London’s Air Ambulance and London’s Resilience Forums to make sure we are ready and prepared to respond to major incidents and ensure we keep Londoners safe.

As the only pan-London NHS provider we have a unique opportunity to play a leading role in integrating access to emergency and urgent care right across London.


By 2023 we will improve outcomes and experiences for all our patients by providing the right care to patients at the right time, and in the most cost effective way. This will mean up to 122,000 fewer patients being taken to emergency departments when their needs could be better met in a different way, and we will deliver significant efficiencies in avoided costs to the urgent and emergency care sector.

Multimedia Officer


The London Ambulance Service is the busiest ambulance service in the country answering more than 6,000 calls and responding to 3,000 emergencies every day in our capital.


We are looking for a talented communications specialist to help us tell our story of building a world-class ambulance service for this world-class city.


You will produce high-quality, sophisticated audio visual content that grabs the attention of our audiences whether that be films and graphics for our digital channels or photographs of staff events for the intranet.


This is a varied communications role. You will be proactive in planning, scripting, shooting and editing multimedia products for internal and external use as well as generating news, features and press releases for traditional media outlets.


A subject matter expert, you will give trusted advice to the Service on how to meet our communications objectives through imagery and film as well as help train media officers in basic skills such as video editing and photography to maximise our in-house resources.


A self-starting attitude is a must as you will be responsible for curating our library of photographic and video material as well as maintaining our photographic, video and computer equipment.


Given the nature of our work with journalists, you will work to tight deadlines and will be required to join the out-of-hours on call rota responding to media enquiries.

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.
