We always have room for more inside

The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) provides emergency, urgent and primary care services throughout Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk since 1st July, 2006.

Our dedicated and skilled staff work 365 days a year, 24 hours a day to make sure patients receive the best possible care. 

Doing this job is not all about having medical knowledge; it’s often about applying a common-sense approach to dealing with patients in their hour of need, or demonstrating personal resilience when a patient’s life is at risk. Of course, the training will provide you with the skills and knowledge to assess and treat a range of patients in need of your help. We have more than 4,000 staff operating from 140 sites and a fleet of 1,000 vehicles. We are supported by more than 1,500 volunteers who provide community first responder and volunteer ambulance car services. 

The eastern region is made up of both urban and rural areas with a population of nearly six million, as well as several thousand more tourists who enjoy visiting the area in peak seasons. It includes major airports and docks which increase the number of people in our region on a daily basis. Whilst we are looking to recruit across all areas of the trust, we are particularly looking for staff to work in the following areas; Essex, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. It’s not the buzz of driving fast with blue lights flashing that will excite you; it’s the knowledge that your presence as part of an Ambulance Team has made all the difference to someone. That someone is your patient.

Supporting Our Armed Forces
The East of England Ambulance Service has recently gained recognition from The Ministry of Defence which announced that the Trust has gained the Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award for showing outstanding support for its Armed Forces staff.

The East of England Ambulance Service Trust was one of 50 winners this year to receive this prestigious award, given to organisations that have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and have demonstrated outstanding support for those who serve and have served in the Armed Forces. We’re only the third ambulance trust to receive this award since it was created in 2014.
