Community Engagement Officer (Burnie)

Part Time (15.2 hrs/wk) 6 month contract | Burnie-based role | SCHADS Level 4

We are looking for a motivated self-starter who has a passion for the North West community.

If you love engaging with people, enjoy public speaking, and have a reputation for achieving set targets, then this is the role for you. Operating 2 days a week, you will be the representative for Volunteering Tasmania on the North West Coast.

You will provide a quality support service to existing and potential volunteers and Volunteer Involving Organisations.  With minimum supervision, you will speak to groups of people about the organisation and the benefits of volunteering.

It will be up to you to think about ways you can interact with new and existing stakeholders to make this happen!

Special Consultation – October

This October, we are looking to you to help us better understand the challenges volunteering faces in regional areas, and how to address a reported decline in regional volunteering.

As your Peak body, each year we submit a vital document to the Tasmanian Government. This document, called a Budget Priority Statement, informs government on volunteering sustainability issues and makes recommendations for State budget spending.

For the 2018-2019 budget we will be focusing on one key question that the volunteering community has raised with us throughout the year:

“How do we safeguard volunteering in Tasmania’s regional communities?”

Our statement to Government is informed by you – your opinions and experiences matter.

To review the locations and dates for these consultation sessions in Launceston, Burnie, Hobart and Sorell, please click here.

For residents of the East and West Coasts, we will also be conducting telephone interviews. Register your interest by emailing 

For those who are unable to make it, video-conference facilities have been made available with assistance from the University of Tasmania. Register here.

These consultation sessions will replace October’s Network Meeting, and are open to anyone connected to volunteering – please forward this information to anyone you think might be interested.

Please note numbers are limited due to venue size.

Please RSVP by 18 October.
