Part Time - Passenger Assistant

SALARY: £7.83 per hour

Hours of Work: 4 per day to be split into two shifts 5 days per week
St David's Bradbury Day Centre is an established voluntary organisation with a high reputation for providing a welcoming, stimulating non- institutional social and health care service for frail older people with multiple mental health/physical problems (e.g. stroke and dementia) and for their carers and extended families who reside in Midlothian.
We are looking to employ a Passenger Assistant 4 hours per day split into two shifts, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The main role of this position is to assist in providing an efficient, good quality transport service for service users travelling to and from St.David's Day Centre. The post holder will be assisting passengers with varying levels of mental health and/or physical disabilities, ranging from full mobility through to complete reliance upon a wheelchair or other mobility aids. The main duties of this post is to ensure safety whilst travelling and to make sure that passenger behaviour does not endanger themselves or others and to diffuse any difficult situations that may arise and keep other passengers calm, and provide physical assistance/support where needed and to accurately relay verbal information and pass information between staff at the day service and passengers/family members whilst maintaining confidentiality. The post holder will be managed by the Day Care Manager and full training will be given.
Occasionally we may require the Passenger Assistant to drive the minibus, it would therefore be an advantage if the post holder held a full category D PCV or Full D1 and be willing to undertake MIDAS training.
