'Everyone who needs it should receive first aid from those around them. No one should suffer for the lack of trained first aiders.'
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 want everyone to learn it, so that they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
To achieve this, 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. By doing this, we can give people access to important skills that they wouldn’t otherwise get the chance to learn.
We are also passionate about campaigning to raise awareness of first aid so that everyone has access to life saving 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.
We are looking for an experienced and passionate individual to join the events and logistics team to ensure continued operational success across the West region.
As Logistics coordinator, you will support the events and logistics team by providing transportation of equipment, consumables and vehicles as well as monitor the stock levels at key locations across the region.
You will play a key role in ensuring our volunteers and employees have the key tools they need to provide front line ambulances, events and training services whilst coordinating the volunteer district logistics officers.
The successful candidate must have excellent communication skills along with the ability to priorities and manage their time effectively. You will also need a driving licence as duties will include traveling around the South West and West Midlands region and will include some evening and weekend work.
Working for us
We are a constantly evolving team of over 2,500 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 Team Work 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.
