Volunteer driver

We are looking for a reliable volunteer driver to help with animal transport and routine pick up of food, newspapers etc. This role could potentially involve emergency pick-up of injured animals in the future when the person has gained experience/ been trained.


  • Transporting animals to/from the vet
  • Running errands and doing pick-ups/deliveries as needed
  • Comply with all health and safety requirements
  • Driving mainly a Mazda Bongo van and sometimes a Toyota 4x4 Hilux
  • Drive a manual vehicle


  • Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 8.30am - 1.30pm

This position could be shared between multiple people so if you are only available on 1-2 of these days that is fine.

There is flexibility with hours as many of the pick-ups can be done at any time of the day, however there will often be a morning transport of animals to the vet so the applicant MUST be prepared to start promptly at 8.30.


Full clean driving license, good written and spoken English skills, reasonably physically fit as the work involves some lifting (loading/unloading). Be able to work cooperatively within a team environment.

The applicant should be a safe and courteous driver with reasonable knowledge of the Dunedin area.

If you have any questions, please call us on 03 473 8252 ext 207 and leave a voicemail or email dunedin.volunteer@spca.nz.
