We’re Looking For Office Volunteers!

We’re Looking For Office Volunteers!

Palms Australia is Australia’s only Non-Government Organisation that places skilled volunteers in remote communities around the world for long-term, sustainable projects. Our volunteers are recruited at the request of our overseas partner communities to help develop the skills of local people.

Despite having worked in 39 countries and providing almost $200 million of skill development around the world, we’re a small, nimble team that relies on the valuable contribution of skilled and compassionate office volunteers. We’re looking for office volunteers (full or part time) to assist with multiple tasks in our office in Petersham, Sydney.

The volunteer must have good organisational and administrative skills, advanced written and oral English, basic computer literacy (experience using Microsoft Office) and a professional phone etiquette. Though we’re happy for the volunteer to choose the hours that suit them, they must be able to commit to at least one day a week in the office. We’re currently working on multiple exciting projects, and encourage the volunteer to focus on an area of their choosing as their main responsibility (e.g. research assistance, event coordination, archiving, advocacy, communications support).

We’re a busy, hardworking team made up of friendly, laid-back individuals. Volunteers receive training as needed while providing support that helps us continue to provide sustainable solutions to poverty in remote communities. We also make great coffee!
