Youth Leader Volunteer
4 to 8 hours per week
Why join St John? St John is an incredible organisation that’s first aid work has been imperative to this country and the other 40 countries worldwide, for over 140 years. It strives for Humanity, Excellence, Accountability, Responsiveness and Teamwork in every program, not exclusive to but including, youth work, adult volunteering, and vitally supporting the NHS.
As a Unit Manager, you hold a key role in St John Ambulance – it is believed that 95.4% of our volunteers report to a Unit Manager. The role of the Unit Manager is a mixture of management and leadership, and you are responsible for almost all aspects of volunteer development and community output.
You will do this by leading weekly meetings, organising other youth development activities and actively participating in the recruitment, training and retention of the young people and volunteers in your unit. You will strive to manage a vibrant and thriving Unit that attracts, motivates and retains its volunteers to be active in the delivery of St John Ambulance’s charitable vision and mission. You will provide an engaging quality programme and offer support, guidance and development opportunities which give the best possible experience for your volunteers and young people.
Don’t worry – there’s lots of support on hand. Together with your induction to the role, you will have access to courses, (including first aid training) workshops and online learning to develop your management and leadership skills, and there are people who can offer support.
