Description

Our Community hub is in need of Volunteer Minibus Drivers.

We have a couple of opportunities for drivers; do you have flexible spare time to enable service users to get to and from their Tuesday evening group once a fortnight? Or “as and when” required be able to help with planned trips and outings in and around Dundee or further afield?

This is a great opportunity to do a little volunteering and or gain some work experience, meeting others and having an enjoyable experience whilst enabling our client group to participate in activities in the community using our organisation's minibus. The role involves picking up and dropping off service users in and around Dundee.

A full driving licence is needed with no endorsements. The volunteer must be aged 25 or over in order to meet the criteria for our minibus insurance policy,

If you feel you could help, we would love to hear from you!
