Do you have van driving experience? Would you like to work for a charity which makes a difference to people’s lives? Emmaus Leeds is looking for a full-time Delivery Driver to support our charity and social enterprise.

Emmaus Leeds is a charity providing a home and meaningful work to people who have experienced homelessness. Unlike many homelessness charities, we don’t just offer people a bed for the night, instead we offer a home for as long as someone needs it, together with care, support and meaningful work in a social enterprise.

What does the role involve?

Emmaus Leeds operates a social enterprise that generates an income to support the charity and also provides work opportunities to our companions. Our social enterprise needs an efficient and intuitive Delivery Driver who has great customer service and people skills. We are looking for a driver with a difference who can:

  • Collect donated goods
  • Deliver goods
  • Transport goods to and from our market stall outlets
  • Dispose of broken goods at the household waste sites
  • Deliver great customer service
  • Be self-confident, able to listen and be supportive

The successful applicant will need to be a good team player. We are looking for someone who is able to work effectively under pressure, whilst supporting a diverse group of people. For insurance purposes you also have to be over 21 years old. The role does involve lifting heavy items of furniture and white goods so please bear this in mind when applying.

It is essential that you have a full clean driving licence that allows you to drive a 3.5 ton van.

The salary for the role is £18,159 per year for a 5 day working week, Tuesday to Saturday, 7.5 hours per day. We also provide a range of employee benefits including a generous pension package and 25 days holiday per year.

If you would like to join the team at this dynamic and successful charity and have the relevant experience, drive and enthusiasm, we want to hear from you. The position will be subject to an enhanced disclosure and barring check for work with vulnerable adults.
