Vehicle Leader for Orange Sky Canberra

Homeless Regular - more than 6 months Canberra ACT

About this opportunity

Your chance to make a real difference in the lives of people experiencing homelessness. • Contribute to the growth and success of Orange Sky Australia's services. • Opportunities for professional development and employment.

YOUR NEW FAMILY: Orange Sky Australia, founded in 2014 by friends Lucas Patchett and Nicholas Marchesi, is a not-for-profit organisation providing free mobile laundry and shower services to people experiencing homelessness. Through a network of 31+ vans and 2000+ amazing volunteers, our services are now positively connecting communities all around Australia.

YOUR NEW ROLE: The Assistant Vehicle Leader is fundamental in supporting  Vehicle Leader in maintaining one of the most important aspects of Orange Sky Australia - the van. Collectively these roles will be the first point of contact for troubleshooting any issues or faults with the vans, responsible for transporting the vans for repairs and maintenance. It would be advantageous if you have experience in minor vehicle repairs and vehicle maintenance (in-depth mechanical knowledge or skill is NOT required for this role).

It is also the Vehicle Leader & Assistant Vehicle Leader's shared responsibility to complete the weekly van checklist to ensure the van is always safe, clean and well stocked.  This role will also stand in when Vehicle Leader might be on leave.  This could be a few hours a week to start while being trained, but could be 4-5 hours per week at peak times.

If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you!
