Are you a current or retired health professional (such as a nurse, paramedic or first aid officer) who is keen to continue serving your community?

With the anticipated lifting of the COVID-19 restrictions, we will be re-opening our centres which pack and distribute surplus bread donated by bakeries.

To prioritise the safety of our volunteers, and our products, we are seeking volunteers with health-related experience for each of our centres.

Duties will include:

  • measure and record the temperature of each volunteer using a non-contact thermometer
  • maintain an onsite contact register of all attendees
  • set out workplace mats to maintain social distancing
  • monitor regular handwashing by all volunteers
  • ensure that volunteers demonstrate appropriate food safety procedures while handling bread

The Health and Safety Officer provides volunteers with a point of contact to discuss their concerns, and access to support services. A proven ability to work both independently and as part of a small team is required. You will need to be flexible and adaptable to changing priorities and have strong attention to detail.

Benefits: Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Dedicating your time as a volunteer, helps you make new friends, expand your network, raise your self-confidence, improve your social and work skills and achieve a natural sense of accomplishment.
