'The Power of Kindness'

The British Red Cross are looking for motivated, committed and enthusiastic individuals to join our successful and expanding team. The Transport & Settlement (T&S) service provides vulnerable people with a home from hospital transport, settlement & support service.

The scheme is service user focused, helping to build confidence and to rebuild and sustain levels of independence. Typical activities include supporting with shopping and light domestic duties, as well as providing companionship, advice, guidance and advocacy. As a light-touch service we do not provide personal care or support with medication. Typically you will spend around up to two hours with each service user.

The successful post holder will be required to work closely with the Service Coordinator to transport and resettle service users; be the first responder to referrals; provide daily administrative assistance and assist in promoting the service within the hospital base.

You will have excellent communication skills and an ability to deal with people in a sensitive yet professional manner. You will have experience of working with vulnerable people and a passion for making a difference. You will be able to use your initiative to work independently.

The work requires travel across Buckinghamshire County using the Red Cross vehicle. A full manual driving licence is essential for the role. The service operates from Monday - Sunday 11:00-20:00.

We are a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We enable vulnerable people at home and overseas to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help people recover and move on with their lives.
