Would you like to use your driving skills to make a difference to people living in crisis?

We are looking for a van driver to manage the deliveries, collections, door-to-door collections and stock transfers for the Red Cross charity shops in Londonderry.

In this hands-on role, you will be an integral part of the area shop network, by helping to develop and grow stock generation contacts, seizing local opportunities and promoting the Red Cross as the charity of choice for stock donations.

Please note that a full and current driving licence is essential for this role. As driving is a feature of this position, appropriate driver checks will be completed in line with current organisational policy.

Full of gifts, clothes and even the odd vintage gem, our 330 shops across the UK are home to over 6,500 volunteers and 700 paid staff. Our team is bright and bubbly, and we love meeting people from all walks of life.

We want to make sure everyone that visits us has a great experience, and we never forget the contribution our little shop makes to helping those in crisis.

The Van Driver will work closely with the local shop managers, shop staff and volunteers, acting as the first point of contact for shops in relation to matters of stock generation, stock transfer, collection and disposal.
