Volunteering at Austin Health

Austin Health is recruiting volunteers to work in a variety of roles and placement depends on the skills, interests and availability that an individual brings to the volunteering role.

Volunteering at Austin Health offers relevant and meaningful volunteering opportunities at all Austin Health sites. Volunteers work in partnership with staff to ensure the best possible outcomes for patients and their families.

Volunteers can now be found in many roles across Austin, as well as engaging with the community and working in our community opportunity shops and as Volunteer Drivers.

We are constantly building on our existing program. We aim to be leaders in the field of volunteering as we work to add value to the experience of our patients and their carers.

Most volunteer applicants will be required to provide proof of immunisation.
