Making over 50,000 trips per year, the St John Health Shuttle is a free community service that transports people to and from essential medical and health related appointments.
The service is often used by older people, by people who are too unwell to drive a vehicle, and those who cannot access other transport options.
Driving a St John Shuttle vehicle, you will be responsible for ensuring clients safely reach their appointments on time.
This volunteer role is highly customer focussed and whilst some clients may be physically able, others may need assistance.
Therefore, in addition to having a sensitivity toward those who are unwell, being physically fit is also important in this role.

We welcome and encourage diversity in our workforce and adhere to best practice equal employment opportunity principles in all aspects of our recruitment and our ways of working.
