Welcome! Thanks for your interest in volunteering.

Volunteering expands your skills and experience, increases your employability and is a way to stay active and engaged with the community. It's also a way for you to give back to the community and help people who need a hand.

All Red Cross people who are covered by a Public Health Order or funding arrangement must meet vaccination requirements. Where a role requires a person to be vaccinated, we will ask you to acknowledge you understand our vaccination position and verify your vaccination status as part of our recruitment process. We do this to ensure you're aware of our requirements and can decide what’s right for you.

At any stage, and for any reason, you may withdraw your application from consideration.

Experience tells us that things can change rapidly with Covid-19. Federal and state governments may update their Public Health Orders regarding vaccination requirements and funders of our programs may change their vaccination requirements. Your circumstances may change. If that happens, we'd welcome you reconsidering Red Cross as an organisation you'd like to be a part of.

During the recruitment process you will be notified that some of your personal information may be collected and stored securely and confidentially. Learn how Red Cross manages personal information »

Red Cross is supported by CrimCheck for the supply of some of our background checks. Learn how CrimCheck manages personal information »
