Our volunteer recruitment process aims to provide applicants with the information they need to find the right volunteer role for them.
It also reflects the significance of our volunteers and ensures we meet our obligations in matching volunteers to roles within our organisation.
Our volunteer recruitment process is:
Expression of Interest
If you are interested in volunteering with MND Victoria email firstname.lastname@example.org to start to explore options.
The Volunteer Programs team will contact you to discuss volunteering with MND Victoria and an application pack will be sent to you.
When MND Victoria requires volunteers for specific roles they will be advertised here Current volunteer opportunities and in our Facebook page. Currently due to COVID-19 restrictions MND Victoria is not actively recruiting for specific volunteer roles.
Interview with Coordinator Volunteer Programs
Should you wish to proceed, you will undertake an interview with the Coordinator Volunteer Programs. The interview is an opportunity for the Coordinator to assess your suitability for the role, and for you to assess whether the role is right for you.
Volunteer Pre-commencement checks
All prospective volunteers are required to agree to a Police Check, a Disability Worker Exclusion List check and to provide the names of two referees.
MND Victoria covers the cost of the required National Police Check.
If an applicant has lived overseas for 12 months or more in the past 10 years they will be required to provide an International Police Check
Complete Volunteer Induction
If your application is successful you will complete MND Victoria’s Volunteer Induction- introducing you to key information and policies to enable you to begin volunteering with MND Victoria with confidence.
Volunteer Induction is compulsory for all new volunteers, regardless of the program you are volunteering in.
Role Specific Training
Some volunteer roles have additional training to prepare new volunteers prior to starting.
Other programs teach volunteers "on-the-job".
To keep volunteers informed and up to date MND Victoria asks all volunteers to attend at least one other training/meeting during the year.
Once all the above are complete, your start date will be negotiated with the Coordinator Volunteer Programs.
MND Victoria Volunteers are involved in a range of roles providing support for people with MND, their carers and the Association.Read more
