Volunteer Drivers will be inducted and trained in driving the truck. Upon satisfactory completion of training, their volunteer employment will be confirmed.

Key Requirements

Full clean driving license and personable friendly attitude is a must. Good written and spoken English skills and physically fit as the work involves lifting (loading/unloading). Be able to work cooperatively within a team environment.
