About this role

We are a charity operating from a portacabin in the St Mary’s Way Car Park in Melton and we are looking to set up a site in Oakham – we have not found one yet! We would expect to be located in the centre of town and open in line with market days, so Wednesdays and Saturdays 9.30 – 14.00. We will need a extra body to support our efforts.

There is minimal admin but what there is needs to be done accurately and involving a little computer work. The key attribute is a little bit of physical ooomph to get the scooters in and out of the store and sometimes helping a customer load a scooter into their car. A scooter may occasionally need a little bit of ‘motivation’ to align them up properly so that you can get the doors shut.

You will ned to live in Oakham as occasionally there may be a need to pop in on a non work day to receive or issue a scooter that has been booked.

So, you will be reasonably fit but not a slave to the treadmill, you will be a bit flexible on days of work but everything will be agreed in advance or on a ‘can do if needed’ basis.

When you can volunteer



  • References needed
  • Accepts ex/offenders

All as above really. We are yet to find somewhere to work from, and yet to get publicity sorted. Training will be at our Melton site and the Oakham site will be run by just two people so the ability to work well in a small team will be key. There is no start date yet for Oakham but you will be part of what could be an exciting time as we try to get things up and running.
