About the role
This role will support the effective transition of events First Aid Training (EFA). Working with our new National Training Management Centre (NTMC) and the services' technical training teams to support the management of training resources and assist the transition to a more centralised resource management model.

This fixed-term role has been created to ensure the effective transition from the current UK Operations staff and the locally managed training model, to the new operating model where service training move to separate business area and have different service accountabilities. The service will move to a nationally managed model.

The role will work closely with the local volunteers and the NTMC to make sure that equipment is available for courses. There is also a need to support the transition from the local management of training resources, to a more centralised resource management model. The successful candidate will need to operate flexibly in support of this alongside the National Training Management Centre (NTMC) team and the EFA Training Equipment Transition Manager.

About the team
Our Event First Aid and Ambulance Support services are crucial and growing activities for the British Red Cross. In both services we seek to grow our exposure and reputation with key partners in the event industry and statutory partners. Our EFA service is primarily volunteer delivered and focuses on where we can reach the most people and employ our skills the most effectively. This involves targeting our delivery with the larger event opportunities across the UK. This is a growth market and huge opportunity for us to become a leader in this field. Our Ambulance support work is primarily contract driven and based around agreements to provide a range of services from Patient Transport to front line ambulance support. In a similar way to EFA, we are looking to grow our contracted Ambulance Support work considerably over the coming years.
