Van Driver Volunteer

We’re looking for a polite and friendly individual with a full driving licence and the ability to undertake heavy lifting, to help us maximise sales and profit by collecting and distributing donations at our warehouse and shops based in Lincoln

We offer volunteer benefits such as:

Reasonable travel expenses reimbursed

Your key responsibilities:

  • Collect and deliver donated items, including large furniture and electrical items and assist with the redistribution of stock, fixtures and fittings between branches
  • Undertake house clearances and transfer appropriate donated goods to the shop
  • Carry out daily vehicle checks and maintain accurate mileage records
  • Always maintain a high standard of customer service and strict control of the security of goods collected, transported and delivered.

And what you’ll need:

  • The positive and helpful attitude it takes to be an ambassador for YMCA Lincolnshire
  • Excellent customer service skills and respect for people’s property and donations
  • A full driving licence and a willingness to travel extensively within, and sometimes outside, the local area
  • The ability to adhere to health & safety policies both in the store and at external locations.

Safeguarding is everyone’s business.
