Q&A: Where can I find professional volunteering opportunity in Australia?

Volunteering is common in Australia. It is a chance to get inside the place that interests you. Australian employers value applicants with volunteering experience. You work for free but the advantages can outweigh that. You have the opportunity to build up contacts and networks. They can help you to tap the Australian Hidden Job Market.

You can also build up your experience and track record. Volunteering will appeal you if you need the specific experience more than the pay. For example, Skilled Migrants need local experience.
To get the best out of Volunteering, you are advised to volunteer for anything that means extra experience, responsibilities or duties, or that gets you to meet more people.

Keep in mind the THREE things you are looking for:
  • the offer of a paid job;
  • experience and skills to go on your CV or Resume;
  • Networking - building up contacts and networks
