Delivery Helper

  • VO50429


Description

The delivery helper assists the driver in loading the van and carrying the shopping into the
customer’s house, but has a lead role with the customer interface. Helpers are responsible for
collecting the cost of the shopping and the Food Train delivery charge from the customers.
The driver and helper should stay together at all times in the customer’s house and drivers are
expected to witness all cash handling carried out by the helper

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.
