The Trust has celebrated an impactful and successful research output over recent years, demonstrated by a significant growth in academic partners, number of research studies supported and participants recruited to research.

As one of the leading research teams in UK Pre-hospital, the Trust is not only well placed to deliver the highest quality research in collaboration with academic and NHS partners, but increasingly to develop a strategy to design and lead research studies from within the ambulance sector. Creating an environment that inspires our workforce to support the delivery of high-quality healthcare and to become academic leaders of the future.

About us

You will be required to work predominately from home and you will be provided with the IT equipment required for the post. You will be required to have access to your own transport in order to travel within the ambulance service region and on occasion, outside the region.
