East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust
Competitive remuneration package
Location: Cambridgeshire, with flexible working
East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) was formed July 1, 2006, with the merger of ambulance services covering Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, East Anglia and Essex.
EEAST have a bold vision to ensure that the people of the East of England region are provided with excellent emergency and urgent care from our dedicated team of nearly 5,000 staff and 1,500 volunteers. Their overarching aim is to place patients and staff at the heart of everything they do while delivering their vision of ‘outstanding care, exceptional people, every hour of every day. The vision is supported by our organisational goals:
- Be an exceptional place to work, volunteer and learn
- Provide outstanding quality of care and performance
- Be excellent collaborators and innovators as system partners
- Be an environmentally and financially sustainable organisation
This is an exciting opportunity for a new team to create a modern, fit for purpose ambulance service that meets the needs of our communities, there are few organisations like EEAST within the NHS which give you the opportunity to make a real difference for over 6 million people and the opportunity to set the agenda for the future of urgent and emergency care across an entire region.
However, EEAST has some major problems they need to tackle in order to achieve these aims particularly in delivering a systematic change in organisational culture, developing and creating new partnerships with communities and stakeholders, whilst strengthening performance and quality – all areas which the new Executive will drive forward.
This is a real opportunity for innovative thinking and strategic leadership which could be an exemplar to the rest of the UK’s ambulance trusts.
As a member of Board, you will share collective responsibility and accountability for delivering on commitments for a safe place to work and a safe place for patients.
The roles being appointed to are:
- Director of Strategy and Culture
- Director of Corporate Affairs and Performance
- Director of Integration
- Director of People Services
