About the role

You will be responsible for the safe collection and delivery of Trust vehicles. This is primarily from Trust locations to both Trust workshops and other designated vehicle repairers, although occasionally pickup from other locations is required.

Other duties you can expect

  • To ensure all vehicles are always driven in a safe and economical manner and in line with Trust policy, bearing in mind that the vehicles are easily identified as belonging to the Trust.
  • To carryout extended road tests of vehicles during both collection and delivery to ensure the vehicles are ready for use by the trust. These hours of collection and delivery may be beyond what is recognised as a normal working hour, so flexibility on start and finish times and working days is required.
  • Communicate general information and vehicle specific information to internal and external workshop staff, make ready staff and station managers.
  • To deliver and collect Trust vehicles between Trust sites and external sites/agents.
  • To undertake extended road tests of vehicles after either a Trust workshop or other vehicle repairer has been undertaken prior to them going back into service.
  • To undertake 'Vehicle Checks' on each vehicle driven to ensure it has legal tyres, functioning lights, sufficient oil and coolant, and fuel for the journey being completed, in accordance with Trust Policy.
  • Able to reactively plan working day based on operational requirements and changes to pre-planned work.
  • To report any defects that arise during the collection, delivery or road test to either the Trust Workshop Supervisors, Workshop Manager or Fleet Admin team, prior to the vehicle being handed over to the user of that vehicle.

What we are looking for

  • Hold a Full UK Manual 7.5T ( C1) Licence
  • Be able to work to deadlines and also plan own day
  • Be flexible as sometimes change in hours may be required
  • Basic Computer Literacy skills
  • Be able to provide 5 years written work references due to NHS compliance
