Our featured job of the week is for one of the largest private sector ambulance companies in the UK who, after a year of unprecedented growth, are now looking to appoint a Chief Operating Officer (COO) who will be responsible for the successful delivery of operational response across the company’s full portfolio. This will mean responsibility for all operational teams within the company, including; Non-Emergency Patient Transport; Renal services; call/control centres; front line support and volunteer drivers.
Over the last two years TASL and PCD have grown from two small local private ambulance firms servicing two contracts based in Canvey Island Essex and Doncaster, South Yorkshire, to being one of the largest private sector ambulance companies in the UK. In addition to their contracts in Essex and Doncaster they now provide PTS, renal and discharge services to CCGs and hospitals in Brighton, Crawley, Kettering, Northampton, Leicester, Loughborough, Lincoln, Louth, Boston, Grantham, Grimsby, Scunthorpe, Hull, Rotherham, Barnsley, Sheffield, and Doncaster. Across the Group their turnover is more than £25m and they employ over 800 staff. This has been an unprecedented period of growth with most of the new business occurring during 2017.
The pace of change has been exhilarating and for the next year or so they see an emphasis on consolidation and quality improvement before considering further expansion. That said, they continue to be opportunistic about business acquisitions as and when they present and are in the interest of the greater business.
Reporting into the Chief Executive and working as part of a lean but effective leadership team, the COO will devise and implement TASL’s operational strategies. These strategies will ensure TASL operates with a commercial and outcome focused approach, which delivers value for money while achieving outcomes, financial performance, quality and compliance.
As a suitable candidate you will have significant operational experience covering; change management; contracts and performance management; financial management and cost improvement processes. You will need to be an empowering manager who can deliver outstanding performance through people.
Deadline for application: 12:00am, Sunday 18 February
