Van Helper

  • VO38835


Description

Van Helpers support our delivery service going out on one of our vans with a Driver. You will pick up shopping boxes from the supermarkets and make multiple deliveries to our customers. You and the Driver will take the groceries into the customer’s house, unpack the groceries, check the order over with the customer and receive the payments. Van Helpers carry a small money float and some cash handling will be required. Van Helpers are required either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday from around 9a.m. till 3p.m. approximately.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our aim is to support older people to live independently at home. Our preventative services address the difficulty older people face getting their weekly grocery shopping, doing jobs around the house and the growing isolation that comes with failing health. We also aim to provide a wide range of supported volunteering opportunities for people of all ages and ability and these include shopper, driver, delivery assistant and office assistant.
