About SCAA

Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) saves and improves lives across Scotland every day. 

SCAA currently operates two helicopters, both EC135-T2is, and two rapid response vehicles - taking expert paramedic care to the scene of time-critical emergencies, whether it be on a road, in a field or at someone’s home.  SCAA then transports patients to specialist hospitals to receive the most appropriate advanced care.

SCAA makes a difference - a patient’s chance of survival and full recovery are greatly increased if they receive the right medical care within the first hour of injury or illness.  The fast response of SCAA and its ability to reach Scotland’s most remote and rural areas saves vital minutes when every second really does count.

SCAA can be airborne within five minutes of receiving an emergency call and can reach 90% of Scotland’s population within 25 minutes.

Working in partnership with the Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS), SCAA is an integral part of Scotland’s frontline 999 emergency response network, responding to trauma incidents and medical emergencies across the country, covering an area of more than 30,000 square miles.

As Scotland’s only charity air ambulance service, SCAA is funded by the people of Scotland, primarily through donations, fundraising events and our life-saving lottery.

Individuals, groups, local businesses, trusts and major donors continue to keep the charity in their hearts, enabling us to provide life-saving emergency pre-hospital care to people in need 365 days of the year across the 30,000 square miles of Scotland’s mainland and Islands.

2019/20 was another landmark year for our fundraising activities, culminating in the April 20 launch of our second air ambulance helicopter providing more care to more people more quickly.

This exciting new role will be responsible for delivering SCAA’s digital strategy which supports all of our fundraising and communications activities.

Don’t miss this truly unique opportunity to be working with the country’s only Charity run Air Ambulance service.
