Volunteer riders need to be over 25 years of age, hold a current advanced riding qualification such as IAM, ROSPA or an ERS ‘A’ Pass – or be trained to an emergency service standard (i.e. Police Class 1).
You must also have no more than 6 penalty points on your driving licence (inclusive of any pending convictions or fixed penalties).
We can provide advice and guidance to enable you to complete your training, so don’t let that put you off – if you are an experienced motorcyclist who can ride safely and make good progress, then passing an advanced test should not be a problem. Contact us now to find out more. We might even be able to supply training at substantially reduced rates.
We also require you to participate in fund-raising activities – everyone needs to play a small part in ensuring that we generate enough funds to keep the service running.
We also require controllers to help organise our collections and deliveries – In other words, if you’ve ever wanted to tell a biker where to go, this is the job for you!
If you have a confident telephone manner, can keep records of events and don’t easily panic under pressure, you could be just the person we are looking for. You would work from home as we will direct incoming calls to you via an automated system – your number remains private – and you will be reimbursed for any outbound calls you make on our behalf. This is a vital role in ensuring that we provide the NHS with a first class service. We need people to cover all hours – evenings, nights, early mornings, weekends and bank holidays and we will provide all the training you need to get started, plus ongoing support.
If you have experience in fund-raising or charitable work and want to give your time to our worthy cause, we would love to hear from you. Perhaps you can just spare the odd weekend and would be happy to help us collect donations at supermarkets, fairs or open days – either way, your time is valuable to us and we’d love to talk to you.
