• You will work with the marketing and volunteer manager to achieve this and you will report to the transport service manager
• As the service becomes more established you will provide support to the transport booking desk volunteers using your knowledge of Cirencester to help plan journeys and transport people in the most cost-effective way
• You will be trained to use the transport booking database so you can help volunteers and staff the booking desk yourself when needed
