New post at VASL

Worker needed to recruit volunteer drivers
£15.00 an hour for 15 hours a week for 2 months.
VASL is a local charity based in Market Harborough that provides many services and projects including a Volunteer Transport Service. To find out more about what we do, visit

VASL Transport Service operates entirely by using volunteer drivers. The drivers provide their own vehicle and time to help people get out and about.

The volunteer drivers help those who live in the east of the Harborough District. The people who we help, are less mobile, frail elderly, who can’t drive themselves or have no access to public transport. We help them to get to vital medical, hospital appointments and social appointments.

VASL Transport Service is very well loved and respected with amazing committed volunteers and staff team. The staff team provide the volunteers with guidance, support, arrange the driving jobs and are there every step of the way, enabling the volunteer drivers to concentrate on providing a first-class service to those people in need of transport.

Such is the success of the service, that we require more volunteer drivers. The focus in the first instance, is to recruit new volunteer drivers in Market Harborough, Kibworth, Fleckney and Great Glen.

We are looking for someone on a short-term basis to help us find and recruit new volunteer drivers.

The person we are looking for, must be able to commit 15 hours a week to this task, be outgoing, have their own transport, comfortable with talking to individuals and small groups and able to enthuse and encourage car owners, with a bit of time on their hands to volunteer for VASL Transport Service. We envisage there will be some evening work involved.

This is a contract (self employed) position with VASL for 2 months in the first instance. We will pay you £15.00 per hour and on top of this, we will pay 45p per mile travel expenses.

To support your work, we will provide you with a full induction and promotional material and the backup of a supportive transport team here at VASL.

Basically, in a nut shell, we urgently need more volunteer drivers and we need someone who can help us recruit them!!

If you are interested and would like a chat about this role, please ring Maureen on 01858 439267 or email
