This role is for a driver to operate a school shuttle/Van run for half an hour before and after school. The current van used for the service is a 10 seater vehicle. The run usually involves just two collection and drop off points in the Ashburton township. We are a small rural primary school approximately eight kilometres North of Ashburton.
The volunteer would need to have a good rapport with primary school aged children (5-10yrs) as well as hold a Full Driver's licence (Standard car) They will also need to be confident driving a van with a manual transmission. A good vehicle insurance record would be an advantage, as would experience driving a van.
The before and after school runs take up approximately 30 minutes each, but the total time commitment would include the volunteer driving to our school site. We would however be willing to allow the van to stay at the volunteer's residence. This would mean that the volunteer doesn't need to use their own vehicle. This service only operates during School term Time.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
