Become a volunteer

Our volunteers come from all walks of life – we are a reflection of the communities we serve. With St John Ambulance Tasmania, you will learn new skills, build strong relationships with new people you meet, and make a real contribution to your community.

Regardless of your location, you have the opportunity to have a positive impact on your community by becoming a volunteer with St John Ambulance Tasmania. Whether you choose to volunteer as a first aid officer or a community transport volunteer, joining St John Ambulance will allow you to acquire valuable skills such as recognised first aid certifications, as well as make a tangible difference in your community.

By becoming a volunteer with St John Ambulance, you’ll become part of a warm and welcoming team that is actively changing lives. There are numerous volunteer roles available in both metropolitan and regional areas of Tasmania.

Volunteers have been the backbone of St John Ambulance in Tasmania since 1887. These volunteers have devoted over 32,000 hours of service to the community each year, in times of need through one of our several different volunteer opportunities.

When you volunteer with us, you become a part of the welcoming team that’s changing lives. And the first life that will change is yours.

Commitment to Safety and Inclusion:

At St John Ambulance Tasmania, the safety and well-being of all children participating in our activities, programs, events, or services are paramount. We have a zero-tolerance policy for child abuse and neglect, and take all allegations very seriously. We are committed to ensuring that children do not experience abuse, neglect, harm, or exploitation during their involvement with St John. Please note that a current Police Check and Working With Vulnerable People Registration are mandatory for those working or volunteering with St John Ambulance Tasmania.

Diversity is a core value at St John Ambulance Tasmania, and we are dedicated to fostering a workplace that is not only welcoming but also respectful and inclusive. We actively encourage applications from First Nations people, individuals living with disabilities, gender and sexually diverse individuals, as well as people who have come to Australia as migrants and refugees. We respect and celebrate the diversity of our staff, volunteers and clients, and we strive to foster a workplace that is respectful, welcoming and inclusive for everyone.
