Health Shuttle Driver - Mangere

The Hato Hone St John Health Shuttle is a free community service that transports people to and from essential medical and health related appointments. The service is often used by older people, by people who are too unwell to drive a vehicle, and those who cannot access other transport options.

Driving a Hato Hone 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.

Health Shuttles operate in most areas of the city, and although we're specifically looking for drivers in Mangere, we'd also be keen to hear from people interested in driving in other parts of the city.

Volunteers will be provided with relevant training (including First Aid Level 1), a uniform, ongoing support, and Hato Hone St John membership (which gives free ambulance service for immediate family).
