Drivers Mate
Hosted by: The Salvation Army Trading Company

Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd (SATCoL) is the trading arm of The Salvation Army in the UK and Republic of Ireland. We were established in 1991 to help fund The Salvation Army’s vital work with vulnerable people in the UK, and today we raise money and encourage reuse and recycling through a network of over 230 charity shops, 2 Superstores, 8 Donation Centres and a rapidly expanding clothing collection division, all of which is constantly growing and developing.

With the support of the British public, we have been able to donate millions of pounds to The Salvation Army – over £43 million has been donated in the last five years alone, helping to fund the extensive and very important work that The Salvation Army carries out– including homelessness and addiction services, care for older people, help at emergency incidents, support for adult victims of human trafficking in England and Wales and a Family Tracing Service.

If you want to be a part of our success and to play a part in helping others whilst volunteering for a fantastic company, then we have a role that suits you.

Do you like getting out and about in the local community?

We need volunteers to assist our drivers in collecting bags of donations from customers’ homes and deliver back to the shop. You may also be asked to move stock from shop to shop or even take unsellable goods to the local tip.

So, whether you're looking to make new friends a couple of hours a week or improve your CV, we can provide all the support you need. We offer flexible hours to fit in with your life style as well as reimbursement for travel and staff discount. If you are looking to improve your CV, we may also be able to offer volunteers the choice to do a free short course or a selection of NVQ qualifications.
