The London Ambulance Service does extraordinary work, both on the frontline of emergency services and at the heart of the NHS across the capital, ensuring patients access urgent care in the best, most effective way possible.  After a challenging period two years ago, the London Ambulance Service is improving rapidly: judged to be a “good” service by the Care Quality Commission, its ambition is to be world-class, as our world-class capital city needs.

The successful candidate will be an experienced, senior HR leader and as such will bring a demonstrable track record of having led an HR team, contributing to people and organisational strategies at board level in a medium sized company or organisation, or at leadership level in a division of a large company or organisation. S/he will bring evidence of working successfully within a range of organisations and, experience within a number of different sectors would be advantageous.  The ability to work with and manage a wide range of stakeholders will be important. The successful candidate will work collaboratively whilst acting as a role model for the organisation’s values of being respectful and creative, acting with honesty and integrity and learning from one another.
