Logistics Lead

Here at St John Ambulance, our volunteers care passionately about saving lives.  It’s our mission that nobody should die because they needed first aid and didn’t get it.  We’re a reassuring presence at events across the country every single day of the year.  What you don’t always see is that behind every St John Ambulance lifesaver is a dedicated team of volunteers who work in the background to keep our first aiders going.  This role is absolutely crucial to providing those people with the kit and equipment they need to do their role.  You’ll be a hugely important part of our lifesaving team yet you’ll probably never need to put your hands on a patient!


We are looking for a volunteer Logistics Lead who will oversee the day-to-day running of our Regional Logistics Hub located in Gosport, Hampshire.  It’s not as daunting as it sounds and you’ll lead a team of Volunteer Logistics Officers who will volunteer alongside you in the Hub.  The Regional Logistics Hub supplies equipment, consumables and uniform to volunteers across the London & South Region so they can perform their roles.  You’ll oversee this pivotal operation as a volunteer manager, working closely with our Regional Logistics Coordinator.


This role would suit a volunteer who is available flexibly each week and would suit someone who could occasionally work during office hours, evenings and/or weekends.  The role will also offer you the opportunity, should you wish, to become involved in other parts of St John Ambulance such as setting up the Logistics for a large event or becoming involved in another function within the organisation.


You’ll have great people skills, be passionate about getting things right, delivering to tight deadlines and working as part of a team.  We really embrace volunteer managers at every level in St John Ambulance and we’re excited to welcome you to apply for this amazing opportunity!

For an informal discussion about this role please contact Michelle Dobson, via email, on: south-east-logistics@sja.org.uk

The closing date for this vacancy is Thursday 21st June 2018 and interviews will be held on Monday 7th July 2018.
