About Us As the peak body for volunteering, we work with individuals, organisations, businesses, and communities to lead, advance, grow, promote, and celebrate volunteering. We need volunteers with excellent communication and relationship-building capabilities, high level Excel proficiency, and researching skills to help us strategise ways to grow our membership. Growing our membership will mean we will have members to back us when we advocate for the volunteering sector. One of our achievements in advocacy is removing the cost for screening checks for all the volunteers as this was a barrier to volunteering. We would not have been able to do this if we didn’t have the support from all our members. In return, we offer members significant benefits. Some benefits are services such as free mentoring, free corporate volunteering, free consultation for best practice volunteer involvement, discounts on training, workshops, consultancies, merchandise, publications and events, and there are many others.
Impact You Can Make You will engage with non-members to advise them of our member benefits and in turn get them to become a member. You will also build rapport with existing members to see how they are going, if they need any assistance or would like to access any of their member benefits and also to inform them about their membership renewal.
Your duties will include research work, setting up Excel Spreadsheets and Word Documents to capture information from your research and contacting non-members to promote our member benefits and increase our member base as well as contacting members to check-in with them to see what support they need.
Impact This Role Will Have On You Volunteering with us will give you a sense of achievement as it will help you utilise your skills and talents to create a lasting impact in the volunteering sector. You will get to be part of a friendly, social, and supportive team, feel more connected, make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.
Giving to others is proven to help protect your mental and physical health as it reduces stress, combats depression, keeps you mentally stimulated, and provides a sense of purpose.
Thank You Thank you for taking the time to read this and we hope to hear from you soon. When we do, we will get in touch in 1-3 business days.
