Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our organisation and help us to support and connect with people on every step of their life path, responding with love, care, hope and humility, and support the most vulnerable in our community. Anglicare recognises the critical role our volunteers play and the positive impact they make.
We currently have an exciting opportunity for a passionate Coordinator to take ownership of our Community Visitors Scheme – a Government-funded program that recruits volunteers to visit clients both within the community and in Residential Aged Care facilities.
The role is a contract until the end of June 2021, working four days per week. You will be based in our Brisbane CBD offices but will travel extensively throughout the Southern Queensland region, from the Gold Coast to Bundaberg, coordinating the recruitment, selection, orientation, supervision and support of volunteers. The focus of this program is to match volunteers and clients who have similar hobbies and interests, life experiences and other connections in order to reduce social isolation and increase wellbeing of all parties.
Supported by an approachable and empowering manager and working within a small, autonomous team, you will be self-managing and enjoy “owning” your position. Our larger Organisational Development team are a diverse group who enjoy celebrating special occasions and sharing successes. Some other benefits include:
Whether you have already established understanding of the CVS program, or come from a HR/Recruitment background, your commitment to supporting our services by creating strong, effective relationships will be paramount. Some of your skills and capabilities will include:
You will be required to hold a Queensland Drivers Licence and a National Police Certificate.
