How to apply
Our volunteer team recruits, screens and trains volunteers to meet the needs and goals of Indigenous communities. Our Community Development Officers work with communities to identify development goals and the types of skills and experience they require in a volunteer. We then prioritise these skills in our recruitment efforts to identify suitable volunteers. The skills communities require change regularly. Below is the list of skills that we are currently seeking.
- Community workers
- Web Designers
If you have any of these skills, please read the following instructions to learn how to apply and register with ICV. If your skills are not on the list above, you can still apply as your skills may be needed by communities in the future. Currently, however, we are prioritising the above skills so it may take us longer to screen your application. You can contact our volunteer team directly on 1800 819 542 or email email@example.com.
If you are an Australian Citizen, simply download, complete, print and mail a volunteer application, police check and medical clearance form to:
PO Box 6155 Mawson, Canberra ACT 2601. (You might need the latest version of Acrobat Reader)
Alternatively, you can use our online application form to apply.
