You will be flexible and be available at short notice and have good communication skills, be passionate about providing professional first aid care and the ability to work as part of a team.
This is a casual role and if successful you will be asked to work as required, including weekdays as well as some evenings and weekends.
St John Ambulance works at the heart of communities, providing first aid, keeping people safe at events and working alongside the NHS in response to 999 calls. Much of our front-line delivery is provided by our dedicated and highly-trained volunteers.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people, many of them under 18, also learn how to save a life through our training, education and youth programmes.
Over the next decade, we have bold ambitions to help transform out-of-hospital care, having a positive impact on the people we treat, the communities we serve, and our own people.
We are a team of over 1,600 employees and 18,000 volunteers, united by our goal of saving lives through first aid, training and campaigning.
