Volunteer - Driver


About us

For 50 years, Southern Cross Care has been providing quality aged care and retirement living services to our community.

We live and breathe our compassionate, capable, collaborative and creative values, and we want people who share these values to join our team.

Right now we’re looking for warm and friendly volunteers in the Darwin area to support our customers at our Respite Darwin Community Hub.

About the role


In this role, volunteers will support our Home Support team by driving our van for client pick up and drop off from their homes to our Hub. 

We are looking for someone with a basic understanding of dementia and the challenges faced by older people who live with dementia.

We are looking for volunteers to assist from 8.00am to 10.00am and 3.00pm to 4.00pm, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

This position would best suit those with clear communication skills and high levels of patience and empathy for those living with dementia.

All volunteers require a current National Police Certificate for the Purpose of Aged Care, evidence of the annual influenza vaccination and a current drivers license.

If you are looking for a rewarding voluntary opportunity in an office environment, we would love to hear from you.
