HR Advisor for Volunteers

Everyone who needs it should receive first aid from those around them. No one should suffer for the lack of trained first aiders.'

About Us

St John Ambulance is the nation’s leading first aid charity. Every year, 400,000 people learn how to save a life through our training programmes, including hundreds of thousands of young people. First aid is such a simple skill, but it has an incredible impact.

We provide a wide range of products and services to the community such as our workplace and community training, first aid support at events and our vital work with the emergency services with our ambulance operations. We generate around £100m per annum which we reinvest in delivering and campaigning for better access to first aid for everyone.

We are also passionate about campaigning to raise awareness of first aid so that everyone has access to lifesaving knowledge through our award-winning ad campaigns such as "The Chokeables" which is credited with saving at least 54 babies lives and recently won the Charity Film of the Year Award 2017.

About the Role

As a HR Advisor for volunteers in the West, you will work closely with a small team of HR Advisors within the region looking after a large amount of volunteers. You will also support the Regional HR Manager in providing HR guidance to volunteer unit and district managers on processes such as recruitment/inductions, development reviews and disciplinary and grievance procedures.

In this role you will have the opportunity to travel throughout the region and work with a wide variety of volunteer queries and issues. To be successful, you will have experience in HR case work in a fast paced HR environment and ideally will have worked with volunteers or in a similar environment previously. You will also provide support to the the other HR Advisors within the region.

Frequent travel throughout the region will be needed and as this role works closely with volunteers, evening and weekend work will be required. This role can be based in our Birmingham or Worcester office and is 35 hours a week.

Working at St John Ambulance - More than one way to save a life

We are a constantly evolving team of over 2,000 employees and 15,000 volunteers, together we’re united by our goal of saving lives through essential first aid services, first aid training and campaigning, to ensure that no one suffers from the lack of first aiders.

We believe that every team member is key to our success whether they work in Ambulance Operations, Marketing, Training or HR and our values of Humanity, Excellence, Accountability, Responsiveness and Teamwork are embedded in everything we do.

We believe in setting our people up for success in a collaborative and positive environment where we are constantly open to change and new ideas.
