About the Role
As a Casual Trainer for St John Ambulance, you will work alongside our busy team of over 400 employed and casual trainers delivering and assessing a variety of First Aid and Health & Safety training courses to our workplace and community training customers.
Our customers are future lifesavers and come from a variety of backgrounds, so no training course is ever the same and you will have to be able to adapt to deal with different situations and learning styles. You must, therefore, remain passionate and engaging while delivering a pre-defined training syllabus, whilst having the expertise to adapt the pace and style to suit the audience
Casual Trainers indicate their availability to us over a period and are then offered assignments to run courses (of mainly half a day to 3 days duration) which you can accept or decline. In return, you will be paid an attractive hourly rate plus travelling expenses – and once assigned, we guarantee to make the payment even if a course is cancelled (although we may to use that time for a different assignment, within reason). You will also be paid for your induction period during which you will learn to deliver our courses confidently and knowledgeably.
We currently have opportunities in various locations, and particularly in London and around the South, for suitably qualified and motivated trainers.
You must be a passionate and engaging trainer, with experience of coaching and training adults. You will have a level 3 teaching and assessing qualification (such as CiLD or CTLLS), it would also be a distinct advantage to have first aid training experience. If you also have a NEBOSH, Mental Health or other relevant specialist qualification related to our suite of courses, we would also like to hear from you (we pay a premium for running specialist courses).
The role requires people to be able to travel to any of our many training venues or to our customer's premises, including transporting equipment and course materials and to be able to demonstrate first aid. Therefore, access to your own vehicle is a prerequisite as is being physically capable to perform the role. You must also have the right to work in the UK.
We normally expect casual trainers to be able to commit to working for at least a week a month. You must be well organised, motivated and your values must align with ours.
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.
