To support our medical centre team we are looking to increase our pool of casual driver/chaperones to provide safe and efficient transportation of Christ’s Hospital pupils to and from clinic and hospital appointments using a school car. In the case of pupils under 16 years, the post holder will also accompany students to the appointment and report back to the school on all relevant aspects.

Previous experience of working with children is preferred. The successful applicant will be able to establish a rapport with, and support a diverse range of students, as well as working flexibly with others on the team and with professionals external to the school. Fluency in English is required and the ability to understand, assimilate and report accurately about medical information is essential.

A clear, current driving licence is required to be maintained at all times as is annual medical clearance for occupational driving. School vehicles (manual gearbox) will be used and applicants should be confident driving a range of cars and able to meet the requirements of our insurance policy for driving as outlined in the person specification . The post holder will have a good local geographic knowledge. Hospital appointments are generally in Horsham, Crawley, Redhill, East Grinstead or Worthing but may also be in Guildford or Godalming.  Successful candidates will join a WhatApp group with other bank drivers and will be notified of driving jobs with varying levels of notice.

Casual hours available between 8am – 6pm, Monday to Friday in term time only

Benefits include an hourly rate of £11.93 per hour plus pro-rata holiday pay, the opportunity to join an occupational pension scheme for eligible staff, free on-site parking, and discounted membership of the on-site Sports Centre.

Christ’s Hospital welcomes applications from all sectors of the community as we aspire to attract staff that match the social and cultural diversity of our student intake. We consider the most important factor to be the right skills, abilities and attitude for the job which will ultimately improve the well-being and education of the pupils. Applicants must have the right to work in the UK.  We are members of the Schools Inclusion Alliance and hold the Rainbow Flag Award.
