The benefits of working with East Anglian Air Ambulance don’t just start and end with your salary. We also offer a generous pension scheme, health benefits and flexible working.
What we offer
This is an organisation that cares for its staff, its patients, its volunteers, its donors, the environment and the community it serves.
To play our part in this, we should be:
- Accountable for our own roles and our actions – doing the basics as well as our specific roles, owning our mistakes (admitting when we are wrong and taking corrective action)
- Supportive of our colleagues and caring for our environment – open-minded, firm but fair, respectful, curious, and acknowledging diversity
- Collaborative with others inside and outside the organisation as one team, working towards our vision.
- Determined to do a great job and find ways to improve what we do as an individual, a team and an organisation. We are never satisfied, continually looking for ways to improve what we do as a charity
- Prudent and careful - using our funds and resources received to ensure best value and mitigate our environmental impact
We have summarised this as five Values:
We operate with total patient focus. This is best encapsulated through our staff days, where we gather centrally throughout the year to share successes and hear directly from patients on how our work has made a difference to them and their families.
Once you are appointed you will be sent two crucial documents ahead of your start – your Boarding Pass and your EAAA Passport.
The Boarding Pass contains detailed induction plans and information on practicalities of day to day work. It also includes your contract and payroll documentation so we can make your transition to EAAA as smooth as possible.
The Passport sets out the culture and personality of the organisation. It offers insight into who we are and delivers key corporate messages to help you feel at home as quickly as possible.
We take pride in giving every member of staff an annual appraisal. This is a mutually beneficial meeting to work with your manager to identify your achievements, to give you the time to reflect on your experiences and to identify development opportunities. This becomes part of our centralised training plan that is delivered over the following year.
Our training budget is generous and we look to deliver bespoke courses across the region. Every quarter we launch a Training Brochure which details new courses available for Staff to take part in. More person specific training is developed with your manager and we support a range of professional qualifications for our staff.
We have offices in Cambridge, Melbourn, and Norwich. We encourage staff to work flexibly across these locations to support joint learning and collaborative working. Please look at the details in the current vacancies to see if there is flexibility over the location for a role from home.
Provided by the charity for all staff on day one of your employment the Simply Cash Plan allows you to receive contributions towards the cost of some health treatments including the dentist, optician and chiropractor.
We have a flexible working policy that aims to keep people happy, healthy and with good physical and mental health. We offer paid leave from work for the following:
- Wellbeing (Mental Health) days
- Volunteering leave
- IVF leave
- Enhanced contractual sick pay
- 25 days annual leave plus 8 days bank holiday rising to 28 days annual leave after 5 years service
- Study leave
