How do I become a volunteer?

Applying for an advertised volunteer role

Please see our volunteer opportunities page for current vacancies and follow the instructions. All the open positions will include a full role description, contact details and an explanation of how to apply.

Expressions of interest

If there are no suitable voluntary positions for your skill set and you have a specific interest/qualification relevant to the work we do at the Cancer Council Victoria (ie. Cancer Research) please express your interest by sending in your resume to volunteering@cancervic.org.au. We will contact you if a relevant opportunity is available.

Recruitment process

Applicants for ongoing volunteer roles will be interviewed and reference checked.  If you're successful, we'll call to advise of your start date and any other details for your first day.

If you've been unsuccessful, or there are no suitable roles, we'll either contact you by phone or send a letter depending on the number of applicants and the type of role you're interested in.

All successful applicants will be required to provide proof of their right to volunteer in Australia.
Successful applicants must complete a satisfactory National Police Check within 28 business days of employment (submission of CrimCheck Informed Consent form prior to commencement) and, where their role requires them to work with or be in contact with children under the age of 18, the successful applicant will also be required to provide a valid Working with Children Check.

All volunteer offers will be made subject to satisfactory completion of such employment checks.
