Our volunteer recruitment process aims to provide applicants with the information they need to find the right volunteer role for them. It also reflects the significance of our volunteers and ensures we meet our obligations in matching volunteers to roles within our organisation.
Our volunteer recruitment process is:
- Expression of Interest
The Coordinator Volunteer Programs will contact you to discuss volunteering with MND Victoria and an application pack will be sent to you.
- Interview with Coordinator Volunteer Programs
Should you wish to proceed, you will undertake an interview with the Coordinator Volunteer Programs. The interview is an opportunity for the Coordinator to assess your suitability for the role, and for you to assess whether the role is right for you.
- Volunteer Pre-commencement checks
All prospective volunteers are required to agree to a Police Check, a Disability Worker Exclusion List check and to provide the names of two referees.
MND Victoria covers the cost of the required Police Check.
- Complete volunteer induction
If your application is successful you will complete a Volunteer Induction. Volunteer Induction introduces you to key information and policies to enable you to begin volunteering with MND Victoria with confidence.
Volunteer Induction is compulsory for all new volunteers, regardless of the program you are volunteering in.
- Program-specific training
Some programs have additional training to prepare new volunteers for their role prior to starting. Other programs teach volunteers 'on-the-job'.
To keep volunteers informed and up to date MND Victoria asks all volunteers to attend at least one other training/meeting during the year.
- Start Volunteering
Once all the above are complete , your start date will be negotiated with the Coordinator Volunteer Programs.
All new volunteers with MND Victoria undertake a 3 month probation period. At the end of that period the Coordinator Volunteer Programs will make a time to check in with you about your volunteer role.
