Have you ever wondered what skills and characteristics are required to be a St John Ambulance Officer?
Apart from attending emergency and non-emergency ambulance jobs, our Ambulance Officers also get to provide first aid services at public events. And to keep their skills up to date, we provide ongoing training so they can stay confident in the moment. Our Ambulance Officers commit to 60 hours annually.
Typically, potential volunteers are interested in clinical and community-based volunteer work. That’s what brings them to us. If over the age of 18 and in possession of an unencumbered Australian driver’s licence (no Probationary or Learner drivers, and no more than 7 demerit points), anyone can volunteer. While our volunteers can easily work solo, they’re also very much a part of a team, each of them trained and able to perform CPR. If this sounds like you, then what are you waiting for!?
