Unit Manager

No one should die because they needed first aid and didn’t get it. St John Ambulance teaches people first aid so they can be the difference between life and death, and you can help us do this.
As Unit Manager you will be responsible for the overall management of your St John Ambulance Youth unit. You will do this by leading weekly meetings, organising other youth development activities and actively participating in the recruitment, training and retention of the young people and volunteers in your unit. You will ensure that they have a positive and rewarding experience in St John Ambulance, by equipping them with the necessary skills to fulfil our vision; ‘Everyone who needs it should receive first aid from those around them. No one should suffer for the lack of trained first aiders.’
This post is a youth management role aimed at those with a drive to help young people between 7-10 learn both first aid and life skills in a local Southampton Youth Unit. Our youth volunteers meet between 17:45-18:45 in our dedicated facility on Friday Evenings (Term Time) and the prospective manager would be expected to attend every session, or organise suitable other arrangements with help from their local management teams / other volunteers. Due to a unavoidable vacancy opening, this role would ideally be filled in early January.
This role is ideal for someone who has some management experience and wants to enhance their skills while doing invaluable work. This role is exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitations Offenders Act.

The closing date for this post is Friday 7th December 2018. 

Interviews will be take place on Friday 14th December 2018.
