St John Ambulance workers made redundant

ADMINISTRATION workers have been sacked by St John Ambulance Queensland. 

St John Ambulance CEO Noel Gillard said sustainability of St John's commercial operation, like all successful businesses, comes from having a strong operating ratio.

"Throughout 2015 St John has been undertaken an extensive review of our organisational and business efficiency and effectiveness," he said.

"The review examined current commercial business performance in order to facilitate growth in both the commercial and charitable service functions.

Changes resulting from this review will take progressive effect as from January 1, 2016, he said.

"Service co-ordination and administration functions in our regional offices and state headquarters will be centralised into an integrated St John Customer Service Call Centre and this has resulted in some positions becoming surplus to needs," Mr Gillard said.

"With much regret, it has been necessary to serve a number of staff with a notice of redundancy.

"This in any business is always difficult, but particularly so for St John, given our ethos and values which are demonstrated through all our staff and hardworking volunteer members."
