Transport to Treatment Driver


Volunteers play a key role in delivering our support and services to people with cancer and their whānau. The time and support you are able to give people is hugely valued by those whom you will transport.

This role assists people with cancer by transporting them to a variety of destinations including Waikato Hospital and other cancer related appointments. You will pick people up from their home and return them back home once their appointment is over. This takes a lot of stress out of the treatment journey. Not having to cope with traffic, parking, and navigation issues, eases the burden people face on a regular basis..

We do have your safety in our best interest so we have guidance and safety measures in place.

  • Being empathetic and a good listener is vital as you travel to and from appointments.
  • Being organised and punctual is a must-have as you’ll need to liaise with clients about pick-up and drop-off times, and connect in with others in the volunteer team to make sure that every assignment runs smoothly.
  • Must understand and maintain the strictest confidentiality.
  • Needs to be patient, understanding and able to work with people of all social, religious and cultural backgrounds.
  • A careful driver with a current clean full drivers licence.
  • A vehicle with current WOF, registration and comprehensive vehicle insurance
