Relief Passenger Assistant

Relief Passenger Assistant

Transporting Somerset requires a Relief Passenger Assistant to work as part of the Fleet Operations Team in the Bridgwater area.    Relief work patterns vary depending on the needs of the service and how much you wish to work.

Here’s what you can expect to be doing

Are you kind, versatile, flexible, able to get on well with people, and have previous experience of caring for people?

If this sounds like you, would you like to be part of our Transport Team, working in the Bridgwater area, accompanying people with disabilities to and from their homes, mainly on minibuses, and assisting with their needs on the vehicles?

A few things about you

You would have contact with parents, carers and others who provide services, so good communication between these people are crucial.


Additional information

All interviews will be taking place virtually over MS Teams.
