Product Marketing Executive
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.
Working at St John Ambulance - More than one way to save a life
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.
St John Ambulance believes that anyone who needs first aid should get it. But the fact is that’s not happening. We are determined to be the difference between lives lost and lives saved.
