The role of the driver is to drive one of the 3 TWAM vans around the relevant area to collect loads of donated tools from TWAM collectors or members of the public who have large amounts to be donated.
The role of the loader is to assist the driver with loading the tools onto the van and unloading at the relevant refurbishment centres.
Whilst the van covers much of Surrey and the South, due to the logistics of the collecting the van, prospective volunteers realistically need to be in reach of one of the Van Hub in Farnham.
Generally we would expect this to be a role which is done during the daytime Monday to Friday. However due to the way the Kent / Surrey Van operates there may be opportunities to drive outside of these hours in this area.
Typical tasks may include Driving one of the TWAM vans on a defined route to collection points Helping load the van at the visits and with the loading and unloading of the van at the refurbishment centre Carrying out relevant pre and post trip checks and recording in the journey log
You need to have a friendly and welcoming personality and be willing to spend long periods working alone (there will not always be a loader).
You need to be a competent driver ideally with a clean licence (although some minor motoring offences may be acceptable) and we will normally ask a new driver to undergo a driving assessment.
You need to enjoy driving and be happy to travel long distances. You need to be reasonably physically fit for either role as the loads of tools can be heavy.
