Volunteer selection and introduction

All our volunteer roles have personal and role requirements to ensure best fit for both the role and the individual.

Our volunteer selection process includes:

  • Completion of application form
  • Initial screening discussion (usually by phone)
  • Role interview with the selected program
  • Referee checks
  • DHS screening (where necessary)

All successful volunteer applicants must also attend a short council volunteering orientation where they will be required to sign a Volunteer Agreement prior to starting at their volunteering site/program 

On first attendance at their volunteering site/program, volunteers will receive a role specific induction to prepare them for their role and the management of Work, Health and Safety matters.
