Job Description

Hi, I'm Julia, and I own and operate Driving Miss Daisy Wellington City/Wellington East. I became a Daisy owner after deciding to move away from a work life of KPIs, reports and deadlines. I wanted to be doing something that got me out and about in my community and made a difference in people's lives. Driving Miss Daisy has been the perfect fit, and I've built a great team of like-minded people.

We're looking for someone to join us as a companion driver.

As companion drivers we spend time with a range of people, including older people still living in their own homes, rest-home residents, school children, people with disabilities, and people receiving ACC support while recovering from injury.

We're more than drivers - we're a helping hand, a listening ear, a reassuring support. We take an interest in others, go the extra mile to help when needed, and enjoy being on the move. 

If you're wanting a change or to take on something different and rewarding, this role might be for you. We're flexible with part-time and full-time options.

You will have a current driver’s licence with a passenger (P) endorsement, or be willing to obtain one. You'll also need a current first aid certificate and to pass training and health and safety requirements. Most importantly, you'll be an excellent driver and communicator. You'll know Wellington's streets well, and you'll enjoy making a positive difference in people's lives.

We're a living wage employer, with a friendly and supportive team, and I'd love to hear from you if you're interested in this opportunity.
