Who can volunteer for Cancer Council SA?
People from all walks of life can volunteer with us. Students and young people volunteer to gain work experience and skills. Others volunteer when they’ve had a break from the job market and are looking to build up fresh experience. Many of our volunteers are retired people, looking to put their experience and some of their newfound free time to good use!
How much time do I have to give?
Volunteering is all about what works for you. You can give as little or as much time as you can and want. Cancer Council SA has a range of one-off, ongoing, or event volunteering opportunities that can enable anyone to give back.
Please fill out the online form with the hours you have available.
What skills and experience do I need?
Many of our volunteer roles don’t require any experience or specialist skills. For example, if you’d like to volunteer at one of our events, we’ll provide all the training and information you need.
Office-based administrative support roles might require phone and customer service skills. We develop position descriptions for all of our volunteer roles and the skills and experience required are clearly outlined, so you can make an informed decision about where and how you’d like to help.
What training and support will I be given?
Where possible, we try to recruit volunteers with the relevant skills and experience to fit each role description. We provide induction and role-specific training for ongoing volunteers. All ongoing volunteers have access to our learning and development program and can discuss individual training and development needs with their Supervisor or the Volunteer Recruitment Officer.
Where can I volunteer?
Many of our volunteer opportunities are at our Greenhill Road office or at one of our many registered fundraising events.
We also have volunteer positions at hospitals and treatment centres around Adelaide to restock information about Cancer Council services.
