Welcome to
South East Coast Ambulance Service’s dedicated careers site.

One of the biggest ambulance trusts in the UK, we work across Kent, Surrey, Sussex and North East Hampshire – a diverse geographical area of 3,600 square miles which includes densely populated urban areas, sparsely populated rural areas and some of the busiest stretches of motorway in the country.

In addition to our 999 service, controlled by two Emergency Operations Centres in Crawley and Coxheath, we also provide an integrated 111 and Clinical Assessment Service from our Contact Centre in Ashford for Kent, Medway and Sussex.

In 2019 we were rated ‘Good’ overall by the Care Quality Commission, ‘Outstanding’ for Caring and ‘Outstanding’ for our Urgent and Emergency Care, with special recognition for our teams’ work to reduce hospital handover times and improve services for mental health patients.

Whilst we are delighted with our progress, we know we can be ‘Outstanding’ across the board with your help. Click through to discover our latest clinical and non-clinical vacancies if, like us, you aspire to be better today and even better tomorrow.
