Your local Air Ambulance Service are a non-government funded charity that flies two local air ambulances, across the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire (WNAA) and Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland (DLRAA)

WNAA was launched in 2003 followed by DLRAA in 2008 expanding our services to fly patients over 5 counties. Our two helicopters provide a rapid response to trauma and medical emergencies over an area of 3850 square miles covering many of the UK’s major road networks including the M1, M6, M69 and M42.

With an average response of just 13 minutes, between them, our aircrafts attend on average 6 missions a day between the hours of 7am – 5pm. Our Critical Care Cars then work throughout the night attending medical emergencies that occur within these regions creating a service that operates 24/7, 365 days a year.

The Children’s Air Ambulance provides a world-class medical transfer service whose specialist facilities are so advanced we can provide intensive care in the air for critically ill babies and children up to the age of 18.

In December 2012, the Children’s Air Ambulance took off. Our service began with one helicopter that completed transfers across the UK, but we wanted to help more children who needed our services at the same time. So, in 2018, we increased our fleet and have invested in two new aircraft that contain enhanced technical equipment and an extra seat for a parent or clinician to travel on board.

Warehouse Operative in Kingsthorpe
on 11 May 2023
What a typical day at work is like
The average day consisted of organising provided goods in the warehouse, providing support on the shopfloor by tidying, reordering clothes and removing older clothes from the shopfloor to put in the warehouse.

Good opportunities for career progression
Highly recommend TAAS for people leaving education and want a career progression. Colleagues are lovely and not the ‘stuck up’ manager types you get in other jobs such as fast food or big company retail. The vibe is relaxed and you are always supported by others. Pay is good but you are paid monthly which i think can be changed

Organisation with Purpose
I worked at the The Air Ambulance Service for 14 years. During this time I had many opportunities to grow and develop in different roles. Over my time the organisation had grown at pace, and with that goes challenge , but at the heart they always tried to look after their people, be a fair employer with the charities values at the centre of everything they do.

Good cause
Job satisfaction knowing your keeping the helicopters and medical staff in the air. Can be difficult because its run very thinly on staff bit which companies aren't in this day and age!

In all fairness why wouldn't you. Your employed and your making a difference to the hundreds of lives that they save keeping the service up and running by the donations people give. I think it's important to work for a cause not work because you have to. Makes the job more attractive knowing that you are in short providing a service
