Emergency Call Handler in Otterbourne, Hampshire

Good job, always plenty of overtime if you wanted it.
It's a good job, there's always plenty of overtime if you want it. Shifts are not at all flexible though and annual leave is frequently refused if other areas of the control room are short staffed.

Rewarding
Rewarding care giving job, extremely gruelling shifts poor pay will get to you after a while. Very hard to progress. You do get respect from public and uniform.

Unsupportive unfair company to work with
Joke of a company, considering it is meant to be a caring company absolutely not. SCAS have a culture of treating people like a statistic and not an individual, And accountable for problems that they are not at fault for and treated unfairly. Do not work for them if you value your mental well being.

Good pay but no brakes and long hours
The job itself is very exciting learning about new things on the phone everyday but it’s very demanding - for a 10 hour-10 and a half hour shift I only got a 30 minute brake, my TL was off so I had lack of support leading to me failing audits and getting a warning even though I had reached out for support but nobody was there to provide it unfortunately. Some staff are lovely and some who’s been there a long time do not seem open to change. It’s a straight forward job, easy to learn but so so demanding in brake aspects, long hours and phone call after phone call with the public stressing at the health advisors themselves on the clinical outcome

Unhelpful and rude
Working at SCAS is awful. Next to no one helps you develop your skills. Workers step over you and will do anything to get ahead and make themselves noticed whilst making yourself look bad. The job itself is great but the ambulance crews are the worst people I've ever met in my life. People that have worked here years are still stuck in the same rank because the company won't let them get further in their career which reduces moral and many people leave because of this. Forget holidays as your be lucky to get 2 days in a row off. Tea breaks can be 30 mins in a 12 hour shift and doing this type of work you definitely need more.
