Job Title - Ring & Ride Coordinator

  • Location - Ledbury
  • Date Advertised - 26/06/2019 00:00:00

Are you looking for a challenging job where you will make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable people?

We are looking for someone to join our small charity as a Ring & Ride Coordinator. You will be responsible for the the day-to-day running of our Ring & Ride volunteer car service, providing a lifeline to over 320 elderly and disabled users in and around Ledbury.

About Community Action Ledbury

We are small community transport charity serving Ledbury and the surrounding area. We run a Ring & Ride Volunteer car service, a small fleet of wheelchair accessible minibuses providing transport for a range of community groups and day trips for the elderly.

About the Ring & Ride Service

The aim of the service is to help people who have difficulty getting around – this may because they do not have access to car and are unable to use public transport because they are infirm or disabled, or they live in an area that is not served by public transport. Members requiring transport call the desk, giving 48 hours notice and we then arrange a volunteer driver to take them where they want to go. The service has 320 registered users, there are 40+ volunteer drivers and we make around 7,000 individual journeys per year (3,500 return journeys).

About the role

The Coordinator has primary responsibility for the day-to-day delivery of the Ring & Ride service. It is a responsible position: the service is very much a lifeline for the users and if we drop the ball someone may miss a vital hospital appointment.

This is a strongly people centred role. You will be dealing with a wide-range of users on the telephone: most of them are very elderly, some have significant disabilities and some require the support of carers. Respect, patience, empathy and care are vital qualities.

Great people skills are also needed to build an effective working relationship with our volunteers. They are an outstanding bunch and you’ll need respect, charm and a good sense of humour to get the most from them.

The work can be fast-paced and demanding, e.g. receiving a significant number of calls and having to arrange urgent trips at short notice.

Responsibilities

  • Receiving and recording requests for transport from our users.
  • Co-ordinating the work of our 40+ volunteer drivers, i.e. assigning drivers to trips and ensuring they are provided with the correct information.
  • Maintaining our Flexiroute scheduling system.
  • Supporting our office volunteers (call handling and admin).
  • Administering the membership of the scheme, i.e. process new applications and annual renewals.
  • Administering finaincial aspects of aspects of the scheme.

About you

To be sucessful in this role you will need:

  • Great customer care/service skills, e.g. some experience in a role involving dealing with members of the public.
  • A friendly and caring personailty.
  • Excellent telephone skills.
  • Good IT skills - i.e. a competent user of Word, Excel and Outlook and able to learn our scheduling system.
  • Strong administration and organistion skills with a good eye for detail.
  • To be unflappable under pressure.

Some experience of working with the elderly/disabled would be advantageous, as would experience of working with volunteers and knowledge of the geography of Ledbury area.

Hours

This is a part-time position the hours are 09.00 to 14.00 Mon - Friday. There is the possibility that these hours will be extended in the future.

Closing date Friday 12th July 2019

Job Type: Part-time

Salary: £10.20 /hour
