Our Benefits

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, free car parking, and flexible working. We are immensely proud to have been listed as one of the top 100 not-for-profit companies in the UK to work for, as part of the Sunday Times’ Best Companies to work for listing. The placing of companies is based solely on staff survey feedback results, and as such is down to employee satisfaction within the organisation. We were absolutely thrilled to have made the top 50, ranking at number 43.

 

Our Culture

We operate with total patient focus. This is best encapsulated through our staff days, where we gather centrally several times a year to share successes and hear directly from patients on how our work has made a difference for 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 working for 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.

Development

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 have helped to support a range of professional qualifications for our staff.

Location

We have offices in Cambridge, Melbourn, and Norwich. We encourage all staff to move around to work in different 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.
