London's Air Ambulance

London's Air Ambulance is the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team within the boundaries of the M25, for the 10 million people who live, work and travel within London each day. We deliver a senior trauma doctor and a specially trained paramedic to the site of the incident using a helicopter in daylight hours and a rapid response car at night, bringing the operating room to the patient. Our advanced medical trauma team treats on average five people a day in life threatening situations. We attend only the most seriously injured people who may not survive the journey to hospital without urgent treatment.  We carry out critical care procedures at the scene of an incident that are normally only found in a hospital emergency department.

London's Air Ambulance charity was established because of a group of committed, determined and pioneering individuals who saw a way to save more lives, despite the medical establishment view at the time that patients with critical injuries could only be treated effectively in hospital. Today the service has been transformed from an anti-establishment pioneer, operating at the margins of emergency medicine, to a global leader of rapid response and critical care, providing support in moments of greatest need, such as advanced trauma response to a terrorist attack.

Our pioneering spirit continues to drive our constant self-evaluation and innovation to understand what we can do to save more lives.  We continue to use our pioneering spirit to look for new ways to save more lives. We research and develop new innovations in treating severely injured patients before they get to hospital. We are determined to search for ways to reduce the time taken to give patients the life-saving treatments they need, providing a knowledge platform for both civilian and military clinical innovations.


The purpose of the role is to maintain the smooth running of the London’s Air Ambulance Shop based at The Royal London Hospital while the Retail Manager is covering a maternity role.  This role will be responsible for overseeing the shop volunteers with responsibilities including stock, cash and rota management.  The ideal post holder will have previous retail experience and have a flexible, problem solving approach.
