First Aider (South London)

As a First Aider at Events, you’ll help St John Ambulance provide first aid at large and small events within the community. You’ll be part of a team of volunteers delivering help where it’s needed, dealing with everything from a sprained ankle to a cardiac arrest.

The experience you gain could lead to more advanced roles, including patient transport, cycle response, advanced first aid and emergency response. You’ll make a real difference to your community and have a huge impact on the nation’s health. 

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. What you can expect from SJA, and what we expect from those who volunteer with us, is included in the volunteer charter.

We are growing our South London team with this vacancy. In St John, South London covers the boroughs within the M25 and south of the Thames.

If you do not live in these areas this vacancy is not suitable for you, even if it's your closest open vacancy. Please look out for our East or West London vacancies.

Selection event: Saturday 1st June 2019 10am-4pm near London Bridge and Borough. You MUST be available for this day to be considered for the role. 

If you are successful, your First Aid training will be on the following dates: 9th, 15th 23rd and 29th June - 0900-1700, in Croydon.
