Volunteer Driver

We would like to recruit two volunteer drivers to cope with the increased demand in services. The role is flexible and part-time, based at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore.

The vehicles we operate are modern and well-equipped Ford Tourneo Connect, Renault Trafic and Renault Master vehicles which are professionally converted to a high standard to carry 1, 2 or 3 wheelchairs.

The volunteer-driven service is a vital lifeline to wheelchair passengers who do not have their own driver to drive them.

We take our passengers to medical appointments, to visit family and friends, go shopping, attend events and go on holiday. Journeys are in the local vicinity and can also venture further afield.

Drivers can choose to undertake any drive(s) that are available; there is no requirement to accept a drive and drivers can choose to do multiple drives a week, one a week or one a month. Drives are available during the week, weekends, bank holidays, daytime and evenings.

Drivers must be aged between 25 and 79 (to meet our fleet insurance criteria) and preferably hold a clean driving licence; minor offences can be considered.

All applicants will be required to provide 2 references and complete a DBS check. Full training including Infection Prevention and Control will be given and PPE provided.

You will become part of our super team at our Head Office and have the opportunity to be included in our "coffee and cake" get togethers and promotional events.

The volunteer driver is a highly valued, greatly appreciated and much needed part of the Barbara Bus Fund and without this invaluable role there would be many people stuck in their homes, unable to get "out and about."
