Blind Veterans UK – Bank Driver


Location: Rustington
Salary: £14.54 per hour plus unsocial hours payments

Most of us grow up with 5 senses and can’t imagine what it’s like to lose any one of those.
For some ex-service people, this is their reality. Suddenly their whole way of life is changed, even walking to the shops becomes a huge task.

Fortunately, Blind Veterans are here to help rebuild their lives. But they can’t do it alone.

This is where you come in.

As a Bank Driver for Blind Veterans UK, you’ll provide safe and enjoyable journeys for our veterans in a variety of vehicles, both manual and automatic, and a range of sizes. These include cars, adapted people carriers and larger minibuses.

You’ll have an eye for what makes a comfortable journey for someone who is visually impaired, which will also include providing sighted guidance into and out of vehicles and during rest stops.

You’ll need a basic understanding of vehicle maintenance and will carry out your own checks on your vehicles. You’ll also need to be comfortable using various tools for planning and managing your routes.

There may be an occasional need for an overnight stay when collecting members.

Blind Veterans UK helps vision-impaired ex-service people of every generation rebuild their lives after sight loss. We help blind ex-service people lead independent and fulfilling lives by supporting them with our in-depth expertise, experience and full range of services.

This position is subject to Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Checks.

We are only able to accept applications from candidates who are located in and eligible to work within the UK. We are unable to provide any type of Visa sponsorship.

We embrace diversity and welcome applicants from people with a disability and from all backgrounds and cultures.

The current closing date is Sunday 7 July 2024; however, we reserve the right to close applications and/or appoint early. If you are interested, please submit your application as early as possible.
