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 All Services unit. You will do this by leading meetings, organising first aid cover at events, organising youth development activities and other community activities. Attend appropriate training for the Role. Build a positive Unit culture by engaging, motivating, supporting and developing your team of volunteers. Work with the Area Manager, the District Training Officer and District new Volunteer Lead to support the attraction, recruitment and induction of new volunteers. Build an appropriate Unit Management Team and work with them to develop and retain existing volunteers. Ensure that Sja policies and procedures are complied with. Ensure that the Unit is part of its community and supports the needs of its community and ensure all volunteers are contributing to the delivery of SJA's charitable vision and goals. Perform any other duties commensurate with these responsibilities.
You will actively participate in the recruitment, training and retention of the 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 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.
