St John Ambulance is the nation’s leading first aid charity.
Every year, more than 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.
Good place to work.
I thoroughly enjoy the day to day job role I have and my direct manager is a delight. I do sometimes struggle to comprehend the communications sent from higher level management as it seems they do not understand the scope of trainers job roles/ hours we actually work fully.
Fun working place, you get to learn a lot of things
Nice place to work, good and friendly people. A very good example of work life balance, though pay is low compared to the volume of work done. But in all, I have enjoyed working at SJA.
Work from home
Good healthy work environment with honest friendly people
Enjoyed working with practically every colleague. People are helpful and friendly and do will always do alot to help. Was able to meet countless new people and all were very grateful for the service. This really helped with my work ethic and motivation to help others.
Free lunches Very flexible Non toxic work environment
Pay is non existent (Voluntary)
Trainer - Challenging at times but supportive
I was a Trainer in the Stockport area. Received nothing but support and advise throughout. Line management were fantastic and helped me to put a development plan in place to advance my career. You get what you give in this job. If you put the effort in they will invest in your future.
Kind friendly workplace
I really enjoyed working with staff and middle management but higher management and director level had no idea what was going on ‘at ground level’ and set unrealistic goals and objectives.
Job security is none existent as the company restructure every 12-18 months.
