We are looking for x2 drivers to drop off and collect equipment for a series of camping weekends occurring over the months of Feb – April 2018.

On some of the weekends there will be the opportunity to accompany a leader and team on a mountain hill day either in Scotland, The Peak district or Snowdonia – this may be of interest to those working towards their Summer Mountain Leader Assessment.

Journeys originate on a Thursday or Friday morning, returning Sunday evening or Monday morning and operate from/to the Outlook Warehouse based in Penn, near High Wycombe.

You’ll be driving a long wheel base van (4.3m) and driving from High Wycombe to our sites across England, Wales and Scotland. There are usually 3 sites to visit and you’ll be accommodated close to the final drop. Saturday is a non-working  day and should you wish to accompany a team on the hill then that will be pre-arranged.

Accommodation and meals (whilst working) will be covered under the Outlook expenses allowance and a working day rate set at 'Full' and 'Half' day.

Applicants must:

  • Be aware the driving work starts/ends at the Outlook Warehouse near High Wycombe. Personal vehicles can be left here.
  • Have experience of driving a large vehicle.
  • Be able to put forward x2 professional referees.
  • Be hard working and friendly.
  • Have no more than 3 points on their licenses.
  • Hold a current DBS certificate if wishing to accompany a team on the hill.
  • Are available to work all of the listed dates.
