Job description

Are you looking to gain experience in the sustainability field or just feel the urge to do some good for the planet? Donut Waste has the perfect opportunity for you! We’re looking for casual drivers to join us on our mission to create circular economy solutions for things that would otherwise end up in landfill. (Full training will be provided for the right candidate.)

As a Donut Waste driver, your tasks and responsibilities would be to:

  • Driving to collect 120l bins from our clients (cafes, schools, offices)
  • Onboard heavy bins into a van using a winch and a manual ramp
  • Drop off coffee grounds at our end users (community gardens and composting places)

Skills and experience

  • The ability to drive a manual vehicle is required
  • Physical fitness to be able to manipulate 85kg bins full of coffee grounds
  • Excellent communication skills

  • Pride in your work and sustainable mindset
  • Friendly and everything is figureoutable attitude

Key requirements

  • A valid manual driver’s license is essential
  • You must be a confident and responsible driver and be able to drive a Ford Transit
  • No previous experience with deliveries is necessary, full training will be provided

Hours required

Currently every second Monday 4 hours, and every second Wednesday 4 hours.

This means 8 hours in total per fortnight. You will do a pick-up round north of Perth one day and another round the next day. (These hours will grow as we onboard more clients.)

Collections have to be done within venues’ opening hours so either an early start 7 am or 9/10 am to avoid the rush hour.

What we offer

  • Experience in the waste & sustainability field
  • Opportunity to grow with the business into many different roles including marketing, social media, sales & operations
  • Full training & support for growth
  • Fun branded company vehicle to drive
  • The rate will be discussed with the right candidate.
