Lifeline - Keeping Queenslanders safe. Lifeline is committed to bringing hope to Australians doing it tough. A trusted national charity, we’re driven by the belief that Australian lives lost to suicide can be prevented. In Queensland we deliver our 24-hour 13 11 14 Lifeline Crisis Support line through 10 Lifeline centres – providing suicide prevention services with a non-judgemental and compassionate listening ear. Backed by more than 6000 volunteers, our network of 130 Lifeline retail shops sell new, donated and pre-loved goods to help fund our crisis support services. We also export to overseas communities, sell rags to industry and run our Lifeline Bookfest and other events to further support our services and help save lives.
This volunteer opportunity will help to maintain the steady flow of stock to our Retail Shops which is essential to providing customers the products they are looking for. A high turnover of donated stock is critical for financing the Lifeline Queensland Crisis phone lines.
Previous experience in a logistics environment would be an advantage but is not essential. A general understanding of transporting possibly fragile items would be helpful.
The retail shop staff and volunteers are passionate and creative teams. By assisting the truck driver with donation pick-ups and delivering prepared stock to the Retail Shops, you will be helping to ensure that our retail staff and volunteers have ample stock for presentation to meet customer demands.
