Charity Shop Volunteer
Cornwall Air Ambulance needs you! The charity operates six charity shops across Cornwall that rely on the amazing help and support of a team of volunteers, known as the Groundcrew. We’re currently recruiting new volunteers to get involved in all aspects of charity shop life, from running till points to sorting donations and dressing the store. Each one of our volunteers plays a vital role in keeping the helicopter flying, enabling the crew to reach more people in their hour of need, saving more time and saving more lives.
To apply to join the Groundcrew, simply download the application form below and return it to us either by post, hand or email. For all enquiries please email email@example.com or call 01637 889926.

Chair, Cornwall Air Ambulance; Location: Cornwall / National
Application Deadline: 30th November 2019
Cornwall Air Ambulance flies more than 800 lifesaving missions each year throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. As a charity, we rely on your donations to fund this vital work. Taking to the skies in 1987, Cornwall Air Ambulance was the first air ambulance in the UK. It has now completed more than 26,000 missions, saving countless lives. Cornwall Air Ambulance is on scene on average in just 12 minutes in mainland Cornwall and less than 30 minutes on the Isles of Scilly. The paramedic aircrew provide pre-hospital critical care at the scene of the incident and can go on to fly the patient to specialist hospital units in Cornwall, Devon or Bristol and even as far as Swansea.
We rely on our supporters for the running costs of £3.5 million a year. Anyone could need this service at any time whether local or visitor, young or old. For the half a million people who call Cornwall home, as well as the millions who visit the county, Cornwall Air Ambulance is a reassuring presence. We have tremendous ambition. We are currently within touching distance of meeting our appeal target to raise £2.5m to bring a new generation of helicopter to Cornwall. In April 2020 that new helicopter will arrive and it will mark the beginning of a new chapter for Cornwall Air Ambulance. We will have achieved an important milestone, yet there is much still to do.
Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust is overseen by a group of professional business trustees, bringing a range of skills and expertise from both the public and private sector in the county. In 2020, our Chair Sarah Pryce will be stepping down and we are seeking interest from highly passionate candidates with knowledge and understanding of charity governance who can bring strong leadership skills and rigor to our Board and support to our Chief Executive and leadership team to lead us into the future.

Mission Maker Lottery canvassers (countywide)
We are looking for canvassers to recruit players to our Mission Maker lottery.
This is not your average sales job – our people have real career prospects and great job satisfaction every day. Many have worked with us for years and have become team leaders and managers. Successful applicants will be offered the opportunity to make a difference, earn well and work in an honest and ethical environment.
The lottery is a popular, low cost and fun way to support the charity. If you are a great communicator and have sound people skills, this could be the change you are looking for. This is a chance to enjoy your work and know that you’re making a difference to a charity close to people’s hearts. In return we offer an excellent package which includes uncapped commissions.
You must be a great communicator and have sound people skills and importantly, you must be hardworking, motivated and dedicated. The role would suit door to door sales professionals from utilities and other sales backgrounds, experienced fundraisers with face to face people skills. On-going training, the tools to be the best you can and continual personal development are at the heart of our culture.
