Vehicle Leader for Orange Sky - Melbourne

Homeless Regular - more than 6 months Across: Melbourne VIC, South Melbourne VIC

About this opportunity

Your chance to make a real difference in the lives of people experiencing homelessness.

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 29 vans and 2000+ amazing volunteers, our services are now positively connecting communities all around Australia and New Zealand.

YOUR NEW ROLE: The Vehicle Leader role is fundamental to maintaining one of the most important aspects of Orange Sky Australia - the van. The Vehicle Leader will be the first point of contact for troubleshooting any issues or faults with the van, responsible for transporting the van 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's responsibility to complete the weekly van checklist to ensure the van is always safe, clean and well stocked. These roles will report directly to the Service Leader and will work closely with our volunteers to make sure they are well resourced every week. This is approx. 4-5hrs per week on average.

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