Community Services Operator - Meals on Wheels

Working Pattern – Saturday and Sunday – working 9 hours each weekend

Now more than ever, providing support to the most vulnerable within our Community is a key challenge for the Community Services Partnership of Runnymede & Surrey Heath Borough Councils, as we work to support residents to continue to live independently at home.  One of the core Community Services provided is our Meals at Home service, delivering a hot lunch time meal and cold tea pack for evenings, to some of the most vulnerable residents of our communities, seven days a week.

We are looking for a committed, reliable and flexible person to join our team, delivering meals Saturday & Sunday each week, working 10:30am – 2:30pm one day and 9:30am – 2:30pm the other.  A shift allowance of £10 per day is paid in addition to the salary of the post. 

You will need to have a full driving licence and able to deliver up to 40 meals per shift, requiring entering and exiting the vehicle on multiple occasions, negotiating flights of stairs etc. within a short space of time.  You will need to be able to communicate clearly with customers and be clear in information you are providing.  In addition, you will act as the eyes and ears for family members and others, checking on the welfare of customers and reporting any noticeable changes or concerns to your supervisor. 

Working both as part of a small team and independently when delivering meals, you will need to have a positive, friendly approach, as well as being able to show understanding and empathy to the needs and concerns of those who you support from providing meals.

If you would like further information on this highly rewarding role, please contact Aline Poulter on 01276 707659 or by emailing aline.poulter@runnymede.gov.uk.

Closing date:  22nd October 2021
