H145 HEMS Relief Pilot – England

Yorkshire Air Ambulance Logo

Closing date for applications: Monday 29th January 2018 at 5.00pm

JOB INFORMATION PACK

Relief Pilot

Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity

Cayley House

10 South Lane

Elland

West Yorkshire

HX5 0HQ

01422 237900

BACKGROUND OF YORKSHIRE AIR AMBULANCE

Not everyone realises that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance relies solely on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across your region. In fact, as an independent Charity we only receive help through secondment of the paramedics from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust. We need to raise £12,000 per day to keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances and highly-trained crew in the air. This is the equivalent of £4.4M every single year.

As a rapid response lifesaving emergency service, our air ambulances serve a population of five million people across four million acres. Our two Airbus H145 helicopters operate from Nostell Priory near Wakefield in West Yorkshire and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk in North Yorkshire, covering the whole of Yorkshire seven days a week, 365 days per year. Flying with NVIS commenced in the summer of 2017 and extends the hours of operation from between 0600 to 2400.

Wherever the air ambulance lands at the scene of an accident, it is a maximum of 20 minutes from a Major Trauma Centre for the patient’s injuries or illness.

Over 7,000 patients’ lives have been changed by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance since the Charity began in October 2000.

JOB ROLE

The structure of the YAA is unusual in so far as we do not have a Chief Executive. The Trustee Board consists of 11 trustees with different skill sets and expertise that they bring to the Charity. The Chairman is Peter Sunderland MBE, DL and the Vice Chair is Brian Chapman. The Board is very commercially focussed and has a broad spectrum of skills.

Day to day running of the Charity falls under the control of departmental Directors who form our Senior Management Team (SMT). Five SMT members are responsible for the business activity departments of Fundraising, Finance, Marketing & Communications, Operations, and Aviation. We are seeking to recruit a Relief Pilot to join our team who, under the direction of a Chief Pilot, will be responsible for the command and operation of one of our Airbus H145 helicopters. Unlike most other air ambulances in the UK, we directly employ pilots to fly the helicopters under our own Air Operators Certificate (AOC).

Depending on base location and roster patterns, current operating hours throughout the year are from 6am to midnight during the week, with twelve-hour overlapping shifts at weekends. The successful candidate will provide shift cover for Line Pilots and the Chief Pilot during holidays, non-flying duties, and other unforeseen events throughout the year. You will be expected to work from either our primary airbase at Nostell Priory, near Wakefield in West Yorkshire, or from our secondary airbase at RAF Topcliffe, near Thirsk in North Yorkshire.

If you would like to be part of this high-profile, successful regional charity and think your skills and experience fit the bill for this exciting role… we look forward to hearing from you!
