If you are looking to get involved part-time on a volunteer basis with a worthy cause; or to get some hands on experience in a fantastic Not-For-Profit organisation; or even to develop a particular set of skills, then we might have the ideal solution for you.

BEING is looking for volunteers in the following areas

  • Media and communications
  • Event management
  • Administration
  • Policy research
  • Grant writing
  • Social media

If you’re interested in any of these opportunities, contact the Collective Purpose Human Resources at volunteers@collectivepurpose.org.au.
