Are you a Nurse looking for a career change outside hospitals?

I am looking for A&E Nurses that want to move away from hospital settings and work in an office environment dealing with emergency call for SCAS (South Central Ambulance Services). SCAS provides traditional 999 emergency services, as well as non-emergency patient transport services, NHS 111 services and logistics, commercial and training services across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire to a population of over 4 million people.

In this role, you will be handling 111 calls - advising and triaging case by case and prioritising the most urgent cases when sending the ambulances. You will need to apply your experience and knowledge to coordinate the calls and give the best advice to the callers, which in many cases might be distressed and looking for answers.

There are vacancies for Band 5 and Band 6 Nurses with extensive Emergency experience. SCAS will provide all the necessary training for you to succeed in this role.

Requirements:

- Minimum of 6 months of acute/A&E experience
- Excellent English/communication skills
- Enjoy working under pressure
- Be a NMC Registered Nurse
