East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) have a bold vision to ensure that the people of the East of England region are provided with excellent urgent and emergency healthcare by a dedicated team of nearly 5,000 staff and 1,500 volunteers. The overarching aim is to place patients and staff at the heart of everything they do while delivering the vision of ‘outstanding care, exceptional people, every hour of every day’.

After two years of focused cultural change and organisational transformation initiatives by dedicated staff, EEAST came out of the NHS Oversight Framework in January 2024.

The Chief of Clinical Operations is seeking to appoint a high calibre professional to undertake a key leadership role within the Trust that will focus on the maximisation of vehicle availability.

Are you ambitious to create an exemplary fleet management function that will impact the lives of up to 6 million people? If so, EEAST has an excellent and challenging career opportunity to offer you.

Key deliverables in this role will include:
  • Maximisation of vehicle availability is the key operational objective for this post-holder, ensuring that the Trust’s vehicles are fit for purpose and maintained in a safe and effective manner.
  • Providing inspirational leadership to a team of 90 + fleet professionals within all localities of the Trust, providing technical expertise, support, and direction to both Trust staff and external bodies.
  • Lead the development and implementation of fleet strategy and policies, including fleet design, procurement, and management.
  • The post-holder will develop short, medium, and long-term objectives in support of Trust’s Green Plan and sustainability objectives, with respect to EV implementation.
  • Represent the Trust at the meetings of the National Strategic Ambulance Fleet Group and other national professional bodies or stakeholder groups.
  • Lead the integration of circa 600 new vehicles into the EEAST fleet.

You will have a background in multi-vehicle fleet management in the ambulance, other blue light, transportation, logistics, armed forces, large corporate or public sectors arenas.

This is a real opportunity for innovative thinking in the creation of an exemplary fleet management function. The appointee will be a key member of the Clinical Operations Team in ensuring EEAST attains its goals of:

  • Being an exceptional place to work, volunteer and learn
