Becoming a Volunteer

 

We always love to hear from anyone who may be interested in volunteering in one of our many program areas so that we can make an assessment about appropriate vacancies that we might be able to offer to you.

To apply to become a volunteer is a four step process

 

STEP ONE – Register

The first thing you’ll need to do is register your interest with us and this can be done in three ways:

 

STEP TWO – Selection

Once you have registered your interest, one of our trained recruitment team members will call you and discuss the process of selecting the most appropriate role for you. This will be based on many different factors including your needs, experiences, skills, motivations and role availability.

You will also be asked to attend both an information session and an face-to-face interview.

When attending your interview you’ll need to bring with you:

  • a current National Police Check or 100 points of identification for a police check
  • the contact details for two referees
  • the details of two emergency contact people

 

STEP THREE – Placement

If a suitable vacancy is found your details will be sent to that program’s coordinator, who will contact you to make a time to meet with you and discuss the role in more detail. The purpose of this meeting is for you to meet each other and discuss the volunteer role further.

All new placements are probationary and are reviewed after three months.

 

STEP FOUR – Training

The final step to becoming a fully registered volunteer is to attend a half day induction session with our training team. This is a compulsory session where you will

  • learn more about your rights as a volunteer
  • understand what you can expect from our Association as a volunteer
  • have fun, meet other volunteers and share a delicious lunch
  • take a tour of the hospital

 

 

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
