Working for St John Ambulance NSW offers a different experience of Paramedicine; one that allows you to truly enjoy clinical practice and caring for patients again.

Every day, Australians are at risk of illness, injuries and potentially life-threatening situations at home, in the workplace and the community. We believe that every Australian should have access to responsive healthcare and wellbeing support when and where they need it.  

 As a profit-for-purpose organisation, when you attend a course, buy a product or need health coverage for your event, you're helping to support invaluable community programs including free first aid training for primary school students and local communities, training and leadership development for our youth and volunteers, or emergency response at evacuation centres in times of crisis.   

 St John has been delivering first aid and community medical support services to the NSW community for over 130 years. The scope of these services has grown to include: 

- First aid training, including specialist courses for mental health, high risk work sites, workplaces, and free first aid training to primary school children 

- Event health services, keeping people safe at events right across NSW, ranging from small local gatherings to large scale events 

- Equipping individuals, families and workplaces with high quality first aid products and services 

- Working alongside emergency services organisations in times of need and disasters 

- Workplace health services such as contracted paramedic services and temperature testing
