Opportunities with South Central Ambulance NHS Foundation Trust

By Ed Hanna

South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) is part of the National Health Service (NHS).

SCAS’ main functions are:

  • Accident and emergency service that responds to 999 calls
  • Provision of the NHS 111 service for when non-emergency medical help is needed
  • Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service (NEPTS)

SCAS’ clinical co-ordination 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 approximately four million people over four counties: Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire. In April 2017, SCAS was appointed as the provider of NEPTS services in Surrey and Sussex.

In 2017 SCAS was delighted to receive the prestigious Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme, Gold Award, in recognition of the Trust’s commitment to employing Veterans, supporting Cadets and Reservists who continue to serve.


SCAS works with a number of charities and organisations such as the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) and Officers’ Association (OA). From early 2016 SCAS began a focused recruitment strategy targeting  service-leavers through engagement events and job fairs. Since then, Military recruitment at SCAS has grown considerably and more in-depth recruitment activity is now taking place. We currently have a number of opportunities within the Trust and would invite you to attend our annual Open Days in 2019:

  • 12th January in Bicester, Oxfordshire, OX26 6HR
  • 26th January Otterbourne, Hampshire, SO21 2RU

SCAS are aware of the experience and skills that service-leavers and Veterans have obtained during their career. So if you have excellent communication, organisational and leadership skills, as well as the ability to deliver high standards of performance in teamwork, problem solving, flexibility and reliability then please do come along and meet us.
