Volunteer Application Complete

Thank you for your application to join St John Ambulance as a volunteer.

We aim to review your application in less than 30 working days of its submission. If successful, you will then be invited to proceed through our recruitment process which is outlined below.

For those living within easy access of Melbourne, the recruitment/information session will be delivered in our training facility in the city. For those living in Regional Victoria, your recruitment/information session will be delivered at your closest St John Division.

Please note that all Community Transport recruitment/information sessions are currently being delivered at the St John State Office in Mount Waverley.

During the recruitment/information session you will be assessed and a decision will be made as to your suitability for a volunteer role within St John Ambulance. If you are invited to continue with your application after the recruitment/information session you will be expected to complete the following tasks;

  • Submit to a Working With Children Check
  • Submit to a CrimCheck
  • Complete Reference Checks
  • Provide proof of your existing nationally recognised first aid qualification/driving licence. These should have been uploaded at the time of submitting your application. If you do not currently hold a nationally recognised Provide First Aid qualification (HLTAID003) we will provide you with a number of dates when you would be able to complete one of our Provide First Aid courses, FREE OF CHARGE.
  • Provide a suitable photograph for your ID card.
  • Attend a formal Induction Session. Once again, for those living within easy access of Melbourne, the induction will be delivered in our training facility in the city. For those living in Regional Victoria your induction will be delivered at your closest St John Division. After you have satisfactorily completed an induction session (which includes a 5 minute continuous CPR assessment) your membership will be activated and you will be assigned to your preferred Division.

We aim to complete the whole application process in less than 90 days, to achieve this we rely on you to be actively engaged and responsive to all of our communications. Please be advised therefore that your level of engagement within the application process forms part of our selection criteria.

I trust that this letter provides you with all the information that you require at this time, if not please feel free to contact me via volunteer@stjohnvic.com.au

Kind regards
