The following listings provide a snapshot of what’s coming up over the next few weeks for Service-leaders who prefer direct contact with potential employers or training providers.
South Central Ambulance Service Military Insight Day
South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) NHS Foundation Trust is an award winning Ambulance Foundation Trust which delivers excellent patient care year on year.
SCAS’s emergency operations centres handle around 500,000 emergency and urgent calls each year, and around 1.25 million NHS 111 calls. The Trust serves a population of about 4.6 million people in its core area of the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire, and has recently also become the provider of the NEPTS service in Surrey and Sussex.
The main functions of SCAS are:
- Accident and Emergency service (front line) that responds to 999 calls
- Provisions of the NHS 111 service, for when medical help is needed but not an emergency
- Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service (NEPTS)
SCAS started working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) two years ago to recruit military Service leavers. Since then, military recruitment at SCAS has grown considerably and more in-depth recruitment related activity is now taking place.
Come along to this event, on the 11th April 2018 in Newbury from 10am - 2pm to find out more about the roles available. To book your place, contact the CTP Events Team at CTPEvents@ctp.org.uk - spaces are limited and will be on a first come first served basis.
The Insight Days are proven to be hugely popular, here is some feedback from previous attendees:
"I would advise Service leavers to attend a ‘SCAS Military Recruitment Day’; this gives you the opportunity to speak face-to-face with veterans employed within a variety of SCAS roles. Do not be discouraged if you’re not from a medical background as there are several routes in, and roles within SCAS. It also may be advantageous to involve yourself in Community First Response prior to leaving the military, which would be an excellent way to gain an insight into the NHS and the Ambulance Service."
South Central Ambulance Service are proud to be able to fully support Service leavers, reservists and veterans and have set dedicated training packages targeted to new starters who have minimal exposure to providing emergency care in a pre-hospital setting.
