We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land and waterways on which we work; the Ngunnawal people, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
We are a not-for-profit community organisation caring for native woodlands and wetlands in the ACT. The Woodlands and Wetlands Trust (WWT) helps protect and enhance two reserves in Canberra; Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary and Jerrabomberra Wetlands Nature Reserve. Together with our partners we look after 1300 hectares of unique habitats and provide opportunities for biodiversity restoration, cultural heritage interpretation, education and enjoyment.
The natural and cultural values of these areas have been recognised as nature reserves that are managed under unique partnership arrangements, bringing together community, government, business and research groups.
WWT is seeking a highly motivated full-time Volunteer Coordinator to oversee our volunteer programs, engaging with our existing 500+ volunteers and the attraction of new volunteers. This is a new role; you will bring your expertise and skills to improve the current program and take it to a new level. The right candidate will host regular gatherings, inductions and opportunities for WWT volunteers. We want to set a new benchmark in the appreciation and engagement of our volunteers to provide a mutually enjoyable experience.
This is an identified position for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander applicants.
