About Us

We are Dove House Hospice, a dedicated service supporting patients with life limiting illnesses. Providing a range of therapies, services and support, we aim to shine light into the darkest days within comfortable and caring environment.

We offer outstanding palliative care to patients and support to carers and families, adding life to days when days can’t be added to life.

We are now looking for a Furniture Driver to join us on a part-time basis to assist our Retail Department.

The Benefits

- Salary of up to £18,828 pro rata
- Contributory group personal pension
- Leisure and healthcare discounts
- Occupational sick pay
- Enhanced maternity, paternity, adoption and shared parental leave pay
- 22 days’ holiday pro rata

If you have experience of driving a Transit Luton/minibus size vehicle, this is a fantastic opportunity to use your experience to help a forward-thinking charity provide the best quality of life possible to individuals with a life-limiting illness.

You’ll join the retail arm of a key care provider supporting people at a time when they need it the most, meaning you’ll be giving back and helping make a difference whilst building upon your own career capabilities.

You’ll discover a range of benefits (in addition to those listed above) including discounts, health and wellbeing benefits, career development and education opportunities and much, much more.

The Role

1. Operate a delivery and collection service for customers.

3. Ensure that the vehicle under your control is in a roadworthy condition and that any damage or defects are reported immediately to the ‘At Home’ Shop Manager.

4. Maintain a full driving licence and report any road traffic infringements to the ‘At Home’ Shop Manager.

5. Undertake weekly routine cleaning of the vehicle to ensure they are clean and tidy, both internally and externally at all times.

6. Be responsible for safe delivery of goods and careful handling of property and premises belonging to both the Hospice and the general public.

7. Carry out/assist in the careful and safe loading and unloading of items from the Dove House vehicles, using all available stock protection material/equipment, to minimise any damage or soiling to goods being transported.

8. Supervise all staff or volunteers working alongside you in your vehicle.
