Rushcliffe and Gedling Voluntary Transport Schemes provide door to door transport services to over 500 people across Rushcliffe and Gedling.  The schemes are open to local residents who finds it difficult to access suitable transport.  The majority of our passengers are older people.  The service is provided by volunteers who use their own cars in return for expenses paid by the passenger.

The new workers will work closely with existing scheme coordinators to coordinate requests for transport, promote and develop the service, recruit and support volunteer drivers and be the main point of contact for registered users. We need staff with excellent people skills who have a good understanding of the needs of older people and a strong commitment to providing a first class service.   The post holder must be able to work accurately under pressure and meet tight deadlines. You will have good IT skills and enjoy working as part of a team.

Confirmation of appointment will be subject to a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service check.

Closing date for applications is Friday 27 November 2015.

Interviews will be held Wednesday 9 December 2015.
