St John Ambulance Cymru (SJAC) have ambitious plans in place and are seeking an outstanding individual to be our CEO, someone who will be a strong advocate for the charity and have the ability to help steer SJAC towards achieving its strategic priorities.
We are St John Ambulance Cymru and we are Wales’ leading first aid charity.
Established in 1918 we’re proud to say that our volunteers have been there for some of Wales’ toughest times – but also for some of the best. We’ve been there: from supporting at the Aberfan disaster to being pitch side caring for supporters as Wales won their 10th Grand Slam.
In our history we provided the first ambulance service for Wales. Now supported by over 4,000 volunteers we continue to deliver frontline services. These include first aid treatment, training, and transport in the heart of Welsh communities. We are proud to work alongside our emergency services providing vital support when they need extra help. Every year we care for over 9,000 people who need us.
Over half of our volunteers are under the age of 18, and we’re proud to provide opportunities and youth programmes for children and young people. Our programmes teach vital first aid skills, develop young people’s aspirations, and enhance their education. We create an environment where people can grow and learn from an early age, providing the perfect springboard for our healthcare professionals of the future.
We’re also part of something much bigger and are an independent Priory of the Order of St John, a Royal Order of Chivalry.
We are seeking someone with the energy, expertise, wisdom and commitment required to support me in leading the charity into its next exciting phase. An individual, who through their background and experience, can bring yet further diversity of thought and approach to the charity.
To bring inspirational leadership to ensure the whole organisation realises its full potential and has a clear strategic direction that will deliver short- and long-term financial stability, safe and sustainable growth of core charitable activities, and a culture of continuous improvement to enable the charity to evolve over time.
