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.
