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: Founded in 2014 by Brisbane mates, Lucas Patchett and Nicholas Marchesi, Orange Sky's mission is to positively connect communities - through free laundry, showers and conversation. Through a network of 37 services in 26 locations, over 2000 volunteers operate mobile shifts each week to connect with people doing it tough. Our volunteers are not social workers or experts on homelessness - they are empathetic listeners and great conversationalists.
What started as an idea to improve hygiene standards and restore dignity to people doing it tough has evolved into something much bigger and more powerful. There are 116,000 people in Australia experiencing homelessness, and we are proud to be part of the greater community of service providers and not-for-profits helping to support people doing it tough.
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 4-5hrs per week at peak times.
If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you!
