Organisational background

Big Group Hug is a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organisation that supports vulnerable and disadvantaged families in need, by providing new and pre-loved goods to help these families care for their children, aged from newborn to 16-year-old. Our core belief is that all children deserve the best start in life, so for us, the child is the focus of everything we do. Our team is made up of over 300 individuals/volunteers who are determined and committed to assisting every family who asks for help. We receive requests for specific and essential items through Case Workers, Maternal and Child Health Nurses or other professionals in the community.

The role

Tasks will include:

  • Cleaning essential baby items: prams, car seats, cots and bassinets
  • Ensuring all labels are in place and items comply with Australian Safety standards (with the help of an app and printed guidelines)
  • Fixing small issues so that the item can be safely re-homed, if possible
  • Working as a team to problem-solve and make sure everything is in good working order

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Be involved in a great community organisation that makes a difference to families in need.
  • Gain valuable work experience, and a reference.
  • Improve you English while volunteering at the warehouse

We encourage people from CALD backgrounds to apply and become part of our great Big Group Hug community!
