Role of the month: November
Each month, In Great Company highlights a role that could help make someone's life better – whether it's through community visits, regular phone calls, or working behind the scenes, we need you to ensure that everyone has someone to rely on.
This month, we are looking for community volunteers in Port Macquarie, NSW. Learn from those wiser, and volunteer to keep the young at heart connected to the communities they love. No doubt you’ll develop a soft spot for seniors who speak your language and be able to simultaneously brighten their day! We have seniors in the central Port Macquarie area awaiting a volunteer match, could that be you?
Be a friend and spend some quality time (in-person or over the phone) with a senior living in the community. Offer a listening ear, be a companion for fun activities or a helping hand for easy tasks at home.
Work Perks (the good stuff!):
Meet new people, make new friends, hear and share exciting stories
Improve employment prospects
Spend quality time enjoying new and exciting social and cultural experiences
Feel part of the team with an invite to attend virtual monthly meetings
You’ll be backed by a training and development team committed to your continuous face-to-face and online learning
Be part of an award-winning, non-profit community organization.
Truly flexible and supportive work environment – we walk the talk
What does our ideal volunteer look like?
Able and willing to travel to clients
Thrives on helping others
Energised by interacting and engaging with people
Flexible availability over a three to six-month commitment
Enjoy going out and being part of a greater community
Be compassionate, patient, observant and a good listener
Comfortable using technology (including smartphones and computers) and basic applications
1 short conversation a week/fortnight over a six month period
If you’re motivated to contribute positively to your community then we would love to hear from you!
