Regional Emergency Preparedness, Resilience & Response Officer

No one should die because they needed first aid and didn’t get it. Whilst St John Ambulance is known for teaching people first aid so they can be the difference between life and death, we also help communities to be resilient and you can help us do this.

St John Ambulance provides support to external groups and the wider community which means that during periods of demand, such as severe weather or in the event of a major incident, it implements its Emergency Operations plans to provide transport, first aid and care skills in support of NHS Trusts, Local Resilience Forums and communities. Regional EPRR teams are responsible for planning and supporting First Aid Services regional managers and volunteer teams to be able to respond when the time comes.

You'll form part of a team of EPRR Officers who help devise policies and processes, create opportunities to train and exercise - both internally and with partners and form part of our On-Call Tactical Advisor function. You'll ideally have an understanding of the Emergency Planning world and/or Civil Contingencies and a good appreciation for customer service and policy development.

This volunteer role can be based anywhere in the London & South Region.

Please see role description for further details about this position.
