CISWO is a national charity whose mission is to improve the lives of individuals and communities facing disadvantage due to the impact of the coal mining industry.
CISWO operates a local day centre in Pontefract, for individuals from former mining communities. The Thornycroft Centre delivers a range of activities and interventions, alongside opportunities to socialise and a meal for beneficiaries. Drivers transport beneficiaries by minibus to and from the facility by minibus. The Centre is open from 10am to 3pm, Monday to Friday.
We currently have a vacancy for a minibus driver. Responsibilities include: picking up and dropping off beneficiaries each day from their homes; arranging servicing, maintenance and cleaning of the vehicle; and driving to deliver meals to sheltered accommodation, load/unload the meals and help to serve them.
Previous driving experience for this post is desirable but not essential. The successful applicant must have good communication skills, display excellent customer service skills and a caring disposition when dealing with beneficiaries who may be older people or have a disability. Applicants should have a flexible approach to work, working supportively and co-operatively with colleagues at all times.
Please note that the shift will be split. Typical driving time is 8-10.30am pick up and 2 – 4.30pm drop off.
A DBS check will be required, plus a full, clean UK driving licence with a D1 category.
We are also interested in hearing from anyone who is interested in occasional hours for either kitchen or driving duties to cover holiday or sickness.
