Employee Benefits

St John Ambulance values the hard work and dedication of all employees and is pleased to offer an array of benefits.

First Aid Training

Knowing first aid is a vital skill and we actively encourage all employees to learn it. Statistics indicate that 80% of cardiac arrests occur in the home and that for each minute CPR is not administered, a patient’s survival rate decreases by 10%.

All employees are offered a complementary HLTAID003 Provide first aid course every three years, which is conducted at a St John Ambulance WA training centre. Immediate family members living at the same address as the employee are also entitled to one free course every three years.

Discounts on First Aid Kits and Equipment

No home or car is complete without a St John first aid kit. They contain all the necessary supplies and equipment needed in the event of a mishap. St John allows employees to purchase first aid kits and equipment at heavily discounted prices.

Salary Packaging

We’ll help you maximise your income. Salary packaging is one of the most popular benefits our employees enjoy. Salary packaging can substantially increase your take-home pay. Salary packaging allows you to allocate a portion of your annual pay towards expenses before it is taxed, resulting in more money in your pocket.


When we retire we all hope to have enough money to afford a comfortable lifestyle. For most of us this will come from our superannuation funds.  As an added incentive to save, any employee who makes an extra 5% contribution to their superannuation fund (in addition to St John’s contribution) will receive an additional 1.5% top up based upon their ordinary earnings (excludes overtime and penalties).

Health and wellbeing

As one of the largest medical providers in WA, St John understands the importance of a healthy and active lifestyle. To ensure a healthy workforce, St John offers a Health and Wellbeing benefit valued at $500 to eligible staff (pro-rata for part-time employees) to help towards covering the cost of ongoing memberships such as health clubs, gyms, pilates and yoga classes. Health programs such as Quit Now or Weight Watchers are also covered by the benefit as is leasing certain sporting equipment (e.g. treadmills, cross trainers).

Discounts on Health Insurance

Health insurance provides valuable peace of mind against those unforeseen circumstances.
To encourage our people to obtain private health insurance, St John has partnered with select insurance providers who are able to provide a substantial discount on insurance premiums.

Free Ambulance Cover

As recognition of the hard work our employees contribute to the organisation, St John waives any fees associated with ambulance transport within Western Australia. The benefit also covers partners and dependent children, and there is no limit to how many times you can use the service.
