We are seeking enthusiastic, caring non-emergency Ambulance Care Assistants to join an exciting and expanding team based at the University College Hospital London. As an Ambulance Care Assistant you will play a vital role as part of the NHS service, for eligible patients who would otherwise not be able to get to appointments for treatment and safely returned home again.
If successful you will be driving (or assisting as part of a crew) and transporting patients with different requirements based on their mobility classification. The job purpose is to provide and maintain a caring environment for these patients and provide a safe transport service, maintaining high standards of customer care and service delivery. Experience is preferred but not essential as we can provide comprehensive training, mentoring, and support where necessary to ensure we are able to offer the best service to patients whilst in our care and give individuals the opportunity to learn and develop within the ambulance industry.

In return, you will be provided with a G4S uniform, the opportunity to earn a monthly bonus incentive, enrolment into a company Pension scheme and G4S Life Assurance scheme and access to discounts including retails, dining and travel.

Safety is of paramount importance and the post holder must ensure that safe systems of work are followed without compromise. The post holder needs to be committed to maintaining high standards of customer care and service delivery that will include the responsibility of adequate safeguarding and prevent training and awareness and an understanding of reporting concerns to the line manager.
