We're delighted to announce the appointment of Ieuan Healan as our new Deputy Chief Volunteer.
Ieuan joined the charity in 2011 as a Cadet based in Llanrumney and has since flourished to become the Divisional Officer in Charge for St John Ambulance Cymru City of Cardiff.
Ieuan also continues to inspire the next generation of lifesavers through his role as a Cadet Leader for the division.
Also a paramedic with the Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust, Ieuan says he is motivated and ready to jump straight into his new position.
“I’m very passionate about volunteering, in particular the development of our young people. I applied for the role to help volunteers like myself to take the charity to a new level.
I always have been and I always will be a volunteer and I am really excited to have the opportunity to make a real difference on behalf of our volunteers.”
St John Ambulance Cymru Deputy Chief Volunteer, Ieuan Healan
Our Deputy Chief Volunteer role is new for the charity and will support the Chief Volunteer in championing the views and voices of St John Ambulance Cymru volunteers across Wales. The role will also be proactive in the recognition of volunteers and to strive to improve diversity and inclusivity in key decision making within the charity.
“The process was extremely competitive with some high quality candidates.
The panel and I are delighted to announce Ieuan as our new Deputy Chief Volunteer and I very much look forward to working with him in the future.”
St John Ambulance Cymru Chief Volunteer, Richie Paskell
Ieuan will begin his new role on St John Day (June 24th) and will be mentored by St John Ambulance Cymru trustee, Kevin Davies.
“Following the panel’s announcement, I would like to welcome Ieuan and wish him all the best in his new role. I look forward to seeing how he develops over the coming months.”
