Voluntary Health Shuttle Driver – Kaikohe – Volunteer

St John –  Northland

Job Description

We are currently seeking expressions of interest for volunteer Health Shuttle drivers in the Kaikohe area.

Making over 50,000 trips per year getting people to health-related appointments, our Health Shuttle service is often used by older people who no longer drive, by people who are too unwell to drive and those who cannot physically access other transport options.

Driving a St John Shuttle vehicle, you will be responsible for ensuring clients safely reach their appointments on time. This volunteer role is highly customer focussed and whilst some clients may be physically able, others may need assistance. Therefore, in addition to having a sensitivity toward those who are unwell, being physically fit is also important in this role. There will be some admin tasks such as maintaining a vehicle log, and ensuring the vehicle is clean and fuelled.

What does it take to be a Health Shuttle volunteer?

No prior experience is required, however there are of course some essential requirements:

Hold a full drivers licence and a clean driving history (vehicle may be a manual shift gear)
Have a clean police record
Ability to commit to one shift rostered per week or fortnight
Have excellent communication and problem solving skills
Be supportive, empathetic and caring
Be physically able (a medical check prior to start is required)
Have an appreciation of different cultures
Able to uphold and display our core values (We do the right thing, side by side, we work to make it better, open minds, and straight up)
In return, we will provide relevant training (including First Aid Level 1), a uniform, ongoing support, and St John membership (which gives free ambulance service for immediate family).
