About us

We employ more than 2,600 staff and respond to over 360,000 emergency and urgent incidents per annum. Our headquarters is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and we have 60 stations spread across a square area of 3,200 miles. 

Everyone at NEAS plays an important role in making sure patients get the right treatment as quickly as possible. It's an exciting environment to work in, and the job satisfaction can be immense.Rated “good” by the CQC following inspection in October 2018, we are an Investor in People and our Staff Survey ratings place us as best in class in a number of areas. 

We were recently voted as 56 in top 100 stonewall employers.

Why the North East?

The North East boasts two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Hadrian's Wall and Durham Cathedral and a wealth of castles, historic houses and gardens - not to mention our beautiful beaches, lakes and mountains just a short drive from most towns and cities.

It is also one of the most affordable places to live in the UK but with some of the lowest commuting times.

Top this off with friendly locals, and the North East will soon feel like home.
