Volunteers play a vital role and are welcome to contribute to the smooth running of the House. A range of positions are available for people who are seeking to develop employability skills and work experience. In return for volunteering we can provide support and encouragement for your job search, especially if you have been out of the workforce for some time and are now looking for the opportunity to get some current work experience to prepare you for paid work. Also, even if your paid working life is over but you still wish to make a contribution, we have positions available that may be of interest to you from helping out in the computer room to performing simple clean up tasks in the kitchen or around the House. Volunteers may be interested in sharing their interests as participants and presenters at our Friday Community Lunches or enquiring about participating in the governance of the House on the Committee of Governance.
Volunteer roles may include:
- Administration duties including database entry, folding program flyers and booklets, preparing signs for display
- Reception and phone enquiries. (Training in this role is provided but relevant recent work experience or an aptitude for administration work is a requirement).
