Volunteering WA Vacancy - Project Coordinator


About us

Volunteering WA’s mission is to lead, advance and celebrate volunteering in WA. As the peak body for volunteering in WA, we are the leading voice for volunteers and volunteer involving organisations, working to strengthen the sector and promote the benefits of volunteering.  Volunteering WA supports volunteering across all areas, providing resources for community organisations across the state, whether they work in sport and recreation, the environment, emergency services, aged care, health and disability services, and many other areas. 

The position

The Project Coordinator position strategically aligns with the ‘Connecting People’ and ‘Strengthening Sector’
priority areas with a focus on identifying, resourcing and managing projects that meet the future needs of the
volunteering sector and work towards the strategic goals of the organisation.

Coordination of the three year Pathway to Job Readiness project, currently in its first year, is a key part of this
role. This Project involves the development and delivery of face-to-face training materials and online tools and
training tailored to meet the needs of youth. The Project Coordinator will also ensure support is provided to
Volunteer Resource Centres (VRCs) to facilitate youth engagement, and linkages with volunteer involving
organisations (VIOs) are developed to ensure that young people ready to volunteer have access to opportunities
to apply their skills. This role will pick-up on the work that has already commenced on this project and continue it
forward, expanding it as required, potentially into schools as well.
