Volunteer with St John Ambulance
If you’re over 18 and want to help us save lives in your community, we’d love you to join our team. Whatever you enjoy doing, and however much time you can commit, there’s a volunteer role for you.

If you are under 18, you can get involved with one of our youth programmes. This will give you the opportunity to learn first aid alongside other important life skills. Please note: we are unable to support work experience at this point in time.

Step 1: find the right role
Whatever your skills, there’s a volunteer role for you:

First aider – be part of a team that saves lives. As a first aider, you’ll deliver care to people in need at public events in your community
Professional clinical roles – nurses, doctors and paramedics play a vital role for us at larger events. Clinical leaders support the professional development of our first aiders and help us keep our standards high
Working with young people – can you inspire the next generation of life savers? As a youth leader, you’ll encourage and inspire young people from all walks of life to develop their potential
Management positions – whether it’s looking after your local unit, or supporting a number of units in your area, as a volunteer manager you’ll gain experience and develop your skills, and help us deliver our life saving work
Support roles – we’re also looking for volunteers who can lend their expertise to roles such as safeguarding, human resources, quality assurance, fundraising and communications, and health and safety.

Step 2: search vacancies
Once you’ve found a role that’s right for you, use our postcode search tool to find a volunteer vacancy near you, and submit an application.

Step 3: we'll be in touch
If you're shortlisted for the role, we'll get in touch to arrange an interview. Our recruitment process page has more information about what to expect.

What you’ll get in return
Volunteering is a fantastic way to enhance your CV, meet new people and connect with your community. Volunteer with us, and we’ll teach you first aid (whatever role you’ve signed up to), and provide you with equipment and uniform if required.

We’ll make sure that you get all the training and support you need to excel in your role. Through our intranet, SJA Connect, you can access resources to do your work, keep up to date with news and keep in touch with your colleagues.

Who can get involved?
Adult volunteers need to be over 18 years old – if you’re not yet 18, visit our young people section to find out about opportunities for to you.

St John Ambulance (England) covers all of England. If you don’t live in England, find out about volunteering opportunities near you.
