Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteering Opportunities in (‘geographical name for the area covered by the advert including Cities, Towns, Council area, etc.)

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 the following opportunities available in your area: (delete as appropriate)

  • Event First Aider: help us to keep the community safe while they work, rest and play by volunteering as a first aider at events.
  • Community First Responder: save lives by volunteering on-call to answer appropriate 999 calls in your local community.
  • Youth Leadership team: train the next generation in first aid and other key life skills while having lots of fun by volunteering with our youth programmes.
  • Event Doctor/Nurse or Paramedic: volunteer with us in a professional clinical capacity and gain an extra edge in your professional development (only open to registered independent practitioners).

We will make sure you will have access to a proper induction to volunteering with 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.
