Unit Manager (City of Coventry Event Services Unit)

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 Event Services unit. You will do this by leading meetings, organising first aid cover at events and other community activities and actively participating 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.

This is an interim post to cover maternity leave for 7 months. Role starts from December 2017 till June 2018.

For an informal discussion about this role, please contact Area Manager, John Downey on john.downey@sja.org.uk.

Closing date for this role is 17th December 2017 and interviews will be held on 20th December 2017.
