Context 

London’s Air Ambulance delivers an advanced trauma team 24/7 to critically injured patients in London, however, a recent brand review survey revealed that two thirds of people in London do not know that we are a charity. We rely on the support and generosity of members of the public to operate our life-saving service through regular donations. One of our greatest challenges is spreading the message that London’s Air Ambulance is a charity.

Our promotional staff are currently attending a number of venues in London to engage the public by explaining the services we provide, offering guidance on making a regular gift and on volunteering, as well as answering any questions the public may have. 

The role

The role is ideal for someone who enjoys talking with others and is motivated by making a difference. Full training will be provided – the main attribute we are looking for is enthusiasm. You will be paid 25p per mile plus paid travel time (£8.50/hour) although we try to book your sites within a reasonable distance from your house. We provide you with a small banner and promotional items such as leaflets for you to take to sites, and you will attend regular team meetings. There is the opportunity to shape your working hours around other commitments, as part of a flexible and dynamic team that challenges itself to be the best it can be.

Our Core Values

Compassionate 

We care about people and put them at the heart of everything we do. We are kind, respectful and always keen to listen to feedback.

Courageous

We are prepared to achieve our mission in challenging environments. We are authentic, honest and not afraid to challenge and take calculated risks.

Direct reports: None

Salary: £22,000

Every second of every day, London’s Air Ambulance delivers rapid response and cutting-edge medical care to save lives in the city.

Critical injury can happen to anyone, at any time. It is the biggest killer of people under 40.

We bring the hospital emergency department to the scene, delivering life-saving treatment to the 10 million people who live and work in London. 

The service was established by a group of committed, determined and pioneering medics. 

They saw that people were dying before they could get to hospital. They understood that every second counts.

Today, treating patients before they get to hospital has been transformed into an established medical discipline. We have a reputation as a world leader of rapid response medical care.

We have provided support to the capital in times of great need such as London Bridge, the Grenfell Tower fire and 7/7 bombings.

We are proud to count a number of “firsts” during our time:

  • The first survivor of open-heart surgery at the roadside;
  • The first to use life-saving REBOA procedure at the roadside;
  • The first to carry out blood transfusions at the roadside.

Our pioneering spirit continues to drive us to understand what more we can do to save lives.

Our Vision is to end preventable deaths in London from severe injury.

Our Mission is to save more lives in London through rapid response and cutting-edge care.
