Enthusiastic Coordinator

Bosom Buddies ACT Inc

Logo for Bosom Buddies ACT Inc

Bosom Buddies is an independent charity that has been supporting those diagnosed with breast cancer and their loved ones in the community for nearly 30 years. It's a volunteer-based charity with one part-time person administering our programs and activities behind the scenes and our passionate volunteers.

Since the pandemic our volunteer base has increased and we desperately need your help to organise and support our amazing volunteers who do such great things for the charity.

Our core activities include providing 1:1 peer support, facilitating support groups, conducting breast awareness information sessions and providing patient aids pre and post surgery to breast cancer patients.

All our volunteers are passionate about donating their time to help our charity and many of them are going through treatment, or are breast cancer survivors. We are seeking a coordinator who is compassionate and understanding but who is also visionary about how to engage and encourage people in the community to volunteer to assist at events such as markets, expos and fundraisers.

Sometimes we can’t plan for an event which means that a level head is necessary to “rally the troops” at short notice to support the activity. Humour is also a key factor when forward planning goes out the window!

We are looking for an enthusiastic coordinator to help with the activities such as:

  • Inviting, recruiting and coordinating volunteers for various events eg. fundraising, markets, expos etc.
  • Looking after and gently guiding our volunteers for what needs to be done at our bag packings and our working bee days
  • Coordinating presenters when we receive a request for an information session.
