Description

The Volunteer Drivers Service provides a transport service to Social Work Services - particularly the Children and Families Team - within the Aberdeenshire area. Volunteer Drivers will collect, transport and return clients (children and adults) to appointments, meetings, clubs etc. Confidentiality and a good rapport with people are essential, as is an easygoing personality and a good sense of humour. Experience in th voluntary sector would be advantageous, but not essential as training will be given. Support and supervision will be on a regular basis with the Co-ordinator. Must have car, full driving licence with at least three years driving experience. A good general knowledge of driving within the local area is desirable, and you must be a good timekeeper.
