Volunteer Co-Ordinator, Specialist Services Team

A highly-motivated person is required to plan and deliver Cara's volunteer program. Your focus is to achieve growth in our volunteer and community partnerships to deliver quality of life and other outcomes for the people we support and their families.

As a member of a highly-professional Specialised Services Team, you will work to your own clearly-defined brief.

To be successful you will need a solid understanding and some experience of volunteering, a relevant qualification or experience in human services or training, along with interviewing, presentation and project management skills - and have the tenacity to develop sound relationships, particularly in the education and community group sectors.

A willingness to be hands-on and lead by example when needed in the delivery of volunteer projects is as important as competent office-based skills.

This role would suit a high achieving recent graduate with relevant work experience or a seasoned volunteer or human resources coordinator with a desire to take the next step with their career in a progressive and growing not-for-profit organisation.
