We are an all-volunteer-run Not for Profit established to create thriving and sustainable communities in the developing world. While based in Newcastle, NSW our Board of Directors and Volunteers are located throughout Australia and overseas. Kickstarted in 2016 by the University of Newcastle's Centre for 21st Century Humanities, Corethics embarked on a research inquiry into the impacts of Mass Tourism on life in Bali, Lombok, and Sumbawa focusing on water depletion and pollution, and land rights. Our Bali, Indonesia program consists of two projects; #waterforbali addressing water depletion through education and building recharge wells and #waste4wealth addressing water pollution using circular economy principles.
Volunteer Coordinator Role
We are looking for a positive, organised, and strong leader. As a Volunteer Coordinator you must be self-motivated and be an excellent communicator, both aurally and written. This is primarily an independent role tasked with the onboarding, management, and support of our wonderful volunteers who are located throughout Australia. It is essential that you are confident using virtual software (Google meet), Gmail, Excel and Word. Experience in human resources would be advantageous however, not essential. We are looking for someone who loves what we do, loves meeting new people, compassionate, embraces diversity, and is a natural motivator and source of inspiration.
Your first point of contact will be the organisation's Founder who will assist you in your role. You will work closely with the Founder to identify any gaps in recruitment and to provide monthly updates. At any given time there will be around 10-20 volunteers performing a range of duties such as marketing, fundraising, events, grants, and partnerships. The role will require your assistance approximately 5 - 15hrs per week (depending on the recruitment cycle and needs of volunteers). Other key relationships include working with the Marketing & Communications Coordinator, Social Media Strategist, and Partnerships Lead relating to human resources needs.
Your role is the next stage in our development and will rapidly increase our ability to get Clean Water for Bali! Plus, you will be the guiding light for our Volunteer team to make them feel connected, supported, and appreciated. Your impact will have many benefits for our local community and abroad!
