Event First Aider (East District) - London
Volunteering Opportunities in East London.
First aid is such a simple skill, but it has an incredible impact. We want everyone to learn it, so that they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved. We have vacancies for Event First Aiders in East London.
This role will help us to keep the community safe while they work, rest and play by volunteering as a first aider at events.
We will make sure you will have access to a proper induction to volunteering with St John Ambulance (SJA) and the training you need for the role you take on. We will also provide you with a supportive environment while you are volunteering with us. Information about our volunteer roles are included in the role descriptions, what you can expect from SJA, and what we expect from those who volunteer with us, is included in the volunteer charter.
In order to successfully complete the recruitment, you will need to attend one selection event, one welcome event, and one 4-day training course.
We are looking to run Selection Events (Interviews) in the evenings on the following dates (you will only be required to attend one of the sessions):
- 1st February 2018 (Thursday) 6.00pm - 8.00pm, in Clerkenwell (to be confirmed)
- 5th February 2018 (Monday) 6.00pm - 8.00pm, in Clerkenwell (to be confirmed)

You will need to attend all four days of the training course.
Please note: by applying, SJA is assuming you will be able to make the advertised dates for Selection, Welcome, and Training events. If this isn't the case, you may not be succesful this time around, as we are limited in the number of volunteers that we are able to recruit for some roles. We do advertise regularly for volunteer roles so you may wish to apply in the future instead.
