Job Description
Transport Service Driver job x 2, Llandudno, North Wales 
 
Blind Veterans UK supports blind and visually impaired ex-service men and women offering a range of services to enable them to retain their independence. We believe that no one who has served their country should battle blindness alone.

Our Transport Service Drivers are responsible for driving the Charity’s Llandudno based vehicle fleet and they provide an invaluable service to our members, other beneficiaries, visitors and staff. 

In order to continue to provide this high quality service, we need an additional two confident, friendly and personable Transport Service Drivers.  You will work as part of a team responsible for transporting members (service users), who may be elderly or frail as well as visually impaired, taking into account the welfare and safety of all passengers including acting as a sighted guide on occasions.  This is a pivotal role and emphasis is placed on being an ambassador for the Charity.

The ideal candidates will have excellent communication, interpersonal and organisational skills, combined with a good knowledge of the UK road network system and experience using route planning systems.  Candidates will be required to work weekends and bank holidays and there will be a need to stay away overnight at times.

A current clean driving licence with Class D1 is essential. Previous professional driving experience throughout the UK would be desirable and working with people with a visual impairment or disability would be beneficial, although is not essential.

These positions are 30 hours/week working including weekend and bank holidays and may require some overnight stays. A salary of £15549/annum is on offer along with an uplift for unsociable hours and an attractive benefits package.

These positions will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check
