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.
As a trainer or assessor, you’ll use your knowledge and experience to deliver and assess our first aid training courses, ensuring that participants are trained to a high standard, and in line with current regulations, policies and protocols.
If you’re an enthusiastic first aider with good communication skills, we’d love to hear from you.
To apply for these roles, you’ll need previous first aid experience – either as a workplace first aider, volunteer event first aider, armed forces medic or healthcare professional.
We’ll give you all the extra training you need to excel, including the Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) qualification or St John Ambulance Assessor Award.
‘When I was interviewing for my job, being able to show you give your time to something so positive was really valued by the interviewers. Being a volunteer trainer has definitely taken me out of my comfort zone and helped build my confidence - after presenting in front of hundreds of people, not much can faze you!’ – Richard, St John Ambulance Trainer
