Volunteering WA

Established in 1988, Volunteering WA is the peak body for volunteering in Western Australia. With a membership of over 745 Volunteer Involving Organisations (VIOs) we work in partnership with community, corporate, educational and government organisations to provide leadership, advancement and promotion of volunteering to achieve the greatest impact for Western Australia.

The position

The Project Coordinator position strategically aligns with the ‘Engage’ and ‘Advance’ purpose areas with a focus on providing support to volunteer involving organisations (VIOs) in Western Australia. 

Volunteering WA is funded under a federal grant to provide support to VIOs across Western Australia. The focus of this position involves project and contract management with stakeholders, including service partners/grant recipients, in the Volunteer Management Activity (VMA) program in WA. This program and delivery of services are designed to support and build the capacity of VIOs to attract and retain a diverse range of volunteers including people with disabilities, newly arrived migrants, and First Nations people. This is achieved through delivery of a range of activities, including support for good volunteer management practices.

This position requires a motivated and self-directed person who will manage the projects and grants within the VMA program and assist with delivering outcomes from stakeholder engagement work. The role is to manage the grant processes and acquittals with good engagement with stakeholders and project grant recipients.
