Volunteering Coordinator - Central Otago Queenstown Lakes

This rewarding position is a part-time, paid position of 20 hours per week, based in Central Otago. Ideally this role will work partly from our Alexandra office, but could work anywhere in Central Otago, for the right candidate.

Our volunteer coordinators work alongside staff to engage and train  volunteers that are well informed and resourced to work collaboratively and successfully across all aspects of our service. You will manage day-to-day matters arising from volunteer activities. An empathetic approach to understanding the needs of volunteers and how they sustain our service is essential. There will be travel required at times within the region.

At  Cancer Society we celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees by incorporating the principals of Te Tiriti O Waitangi.

In the Volunteer Coordinator Role, you will enjoy:

  • The ability to identify opportunities and achieve goals.
  • Working with established teams of long-term loyal and multi-skilled volunteers.
  • A strong positive team environment.
  • Support from our main offices in Queenstown, Dunedin and Invercargill.

We would love to hear from you if you:

  • Have skills and experience in developing and leading volunteers or staff.
  • Experience in events.
  • Have facilitation or training skills.
  • Have good oral and written communication skills.
  • Have strong interpersonal skills, to deal with a diverse range of people.
  • Have sound administration and IT skills (including Word and Excel and Volunteering Management Systems).
  • Enjoy working both independently and as part of a team.
  • Are connected to the Central Otago and Queenstown Lakes community.

Some things you should know about the Cancer Society:

  • We are a local independent organisation that relies on funds raised by our community.
  • Our mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of cancer for all New Zealanders.
  • Te Tiriti o Waitangi is foundational to our work, and reducing cancer inequities is a priority for us, especially for Māori.
  • We have staff based in communities across Otago and Southland providing Supportive Care services and delivering Health Promotion programmes that reduce cancer risk.
  • As the Cancer Society is covered under the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021, all staff are required to have received two doses plus the booster.

If you want to work for a known charity that provides a wonderful service supporting cancer patients and their families, then this is the role for you!
