Frequently Asked Questions About Volunteering

General Questions

SEEK feels that it is the responsibility of anyone who can contribute, to contribute. We want to help the communities where we work in a meaningful way.

So we discussed at length how we could best support important causes. Instead of selecting one or two organisations to sponsor, we decided to donate what we do best — our expertise in connecting people to opportunities!

SEEK’s experience in matching jobseekers to employment opportunities uniquely positions it to provide this first-class experience to people seeking volunteer opportunities.

There is no cost to volunteers or qualified not-for-profit organisation to use this service. SEEK earns no revenue from this project, apart from us at SEEK gaining a sense of pride and contribuition.

To create the most effective meeting place in Australia for connecting volunteers to opportunities to increase the impact of volunteering through:

  • Improving efficiency for not-for-profits to recruit volunteers and facilitate as many matches as possible,
  • Creating quality matches between the skills and interests of volunteers and the requirements of the organisations seeking them.

Working (and getting paid) is an important part of life. But sometimes, you need to think beyond financial reward. We get the satisfaction of knowing that, in partnership with Volunteering Australia, we will help take volunteerism forward in Australia and ultimately help out people who really need it.
