If you have experience driving and are seeking a role where you can make an immediate difference for people and our planet, we need you!

The successful candidate will:

  • Be excited to foster relationships with people at your pick-up and drop-off locations, and educate and inspire behaviour change by talking about our work
  • Be physically fit and be able to load and unload vibrant, nutritious food boxes (up to 15kg per box)
