We are looking for First Responder Volunteers to join the Dannevirke team in providing an invaluable service to the community.

Volunteering with St John is a commitment, but one which is immensely rewarding. In return for the time you invest in us and in your community, we offer you NZQA recognised training from the leading provider of pre-hospital emergency care in the country!

We are in need of First Responders to work alongside both paid and volunteer staff. First Responders are trained and equipped to the same high standard as frontline ambulance officers, but unlike the current opportunities that ask volunteers to commit to a full 12 hour shift, First Response Units will be deployed in the local community and are not required to transport patients to hospital meaning that the time commitment for volunteers is significantly less.

St John will provide successful volunteers with training to First Responder level; all volunteers do have the opportunity to later apply to progress toward gaining their National Diploma in Ambulance.

Before applying you must:

  • Hold a full and clean NZ Driver's Licence for at least 12 months or have completed an approved NZTA advanced driving course (if full licence held for less than 12 months)
  • Be 18 years of age or over and have NZ residency or citizenship
  • Be able to pass the St John assessment requirements (physical, interview, literacy/numeracy test
  • Be able to commit to regular duties, ongoing training and courses funded by St John.

Key requirements are:

  • A desire to help people in need
  • Have a positive outlook
  • An appreciation of different cultures
  • A compassionate and caring nature
  • A motivated approach to learning and training
  • Be trustworthy and reliable
  • Good time management and communication skills, both written and oral

Applicants will be required to undergo Police and Driver Checks.
