About St. John Ambulance Ireland
St John Ambulance is a registered charity providing first aid training to members of the public, as well as providing first aid and advanced cover (as required) at local and national events, should someone suddenly become unwell. Our vision is that everyone should have immediate access to first aid no matter where they are or what they are doing at the onset of illness and injury.
We are always looking for bright and enthusiastic people to join us and help make that vision a reality. No experience is necessary and should you have any skills which you feel we might find useful, do let us know. All our volunteers are provided with induction training on joining and are mentored during their probationary period. Divisions (Branches) of St. John Ambulance exist throughout Ireland.
We are currently recruiting volunteers in the over 55 age group to volunteer mid week and at weekends. Our volunteers attend Dublin's prestigious sporting and events centres such as Croke Park, The Aviva Stadium and the RDS among others.
The main task for a volunteer is to provide first aid treatment to a member of the public who may become unwell or injured at a public event.
