St John Ambulance Cymru

We’ve supported people and communities across Wales since 1880. We existed before the NHS in Wales and provided the earliest medical support to those who were sick or injured.

Since March 2020, we’ve worked closely with Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust (WAST) and NHS Wales, increasing our capacity and developing new innovative ways of working to assist and relieve the overwhelming pressure on the frontline brought about by COVID-19.

We’ve helped by continuing to provide care and support to people when they’ve needed it most. This includes caring for people at Wales’ field hospitals, being there for people at vaccination centres and strengthening our Urgent Care Support within the ambulance service.

Now, in 2022, we continue performing a major role in strengthening community resilience and ensuring people are trained in first aid so they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.

We fulfil key front-line roles to support vulnerable people, in addition to offering the opportunity for people from all backgrounds to develop their personal skills and confidence to support our charitable and income generating services whilst assisting their own career development.

As a charity, we partner with the Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust and NHS Health Boards, providing ambulance support services in addition to delivering our Falls Response Service, helping people who’ve fallen at home, back to their feet.

We maintain our reputation as being the leading organisation to deliver first aid training to both commercial businesses and local-based communities including schools throughout Wales.

We also give support to the people of Wales through:

  • Medical duties at events
  • Community based divisions
  • Falls Response Service
  • Community First Responders (CFR)

Our focus is developing new, innovative services to help us achieve our mission of saving lives and enhancing the health and wellbeing of communities in Wales.

We’re undergoing an extensive and exciting programme of modernisation, forward thinking, encompassing a review of our existing services, financial and workforce models and we’re developing a rejuvenated culture aligned to our core vision and values to improve our overall people experience.

The opportunity

This is a hugely exciting time to join the Fundraising Department at St John Ambulance Cymru. Following substantial investment to grow the team, we are currently recruiting a number of new roles.

The Fundraising Assistant will sit at the heart of the Fundraising team and will provide fundraising and administrative support to colleagues across the department, helping to achieve our mission to save lives and enhance the health and well-being of our Welsh communities.

The post-holder will be the database champion for the team, being responsible for the administration of all our income-generating activity centrally and through our county divisions.

So, if you’re an ambitious fundraiser, with enthusiasm to make a real difference, we would love to hear from you!

What you’ll need to be successful

To achieve the above, we’re looking for a talented, confident, and experienced Fundraising Assistant with a proven track record of managing a varied workload, whilst acting as a first point of contact for the fundraising team, supporting a variety of activities.

What you’ll get in return

In return, you’ll have access to a range of benefits including, but not limited to:

  • 31 days holiday (including bank holidays)
  • Access to a Blue Light Card, providing various discounts at more than 15,000 retailers.
  • Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)
  • Access to Private Medical Care
  • Home/flexible working
  • Various training and development opportunities
