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. Our volunteers provide first aid in their communities, keeping people safe at events, and working alongside the NHS in response to 999 calls. We’re also always campaigning to raise awareness of first aid and directly educate the public.
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.
Our volunteer managers are vital in ensuring that all our volunteers have a positive and rewarding volunteering experience. As a volunteer manager with St John Ambulance, you’ll help ensure the smooth delivery of our volunteer services, including our youth programmes, first aid event cover, and community first responder scheme.
If you’ve got a proactive, pragmatic attitude, we’d love to hear from you.
‘Volunteering’s definitely given me leadership skills – being a unit manager has taught me how to communicate with people and problem solve. I have to use my initiative and have learned to be flexible, adapting my approach for different people. It’s such a great opportunity to give back to the community.’ – Naomi, Unit Manager
