About volunteering with us

If you’re a community-minded Hairdresser or Barber, and motivated to make a difference, this may be the perfect role for you.

We provide pop-up hairdressing/barber services at some of WA’s leading community service organisations, such as, St Barts, 55 Central, Vinnies WA – Passages Engagement Hub and Uniting WA – Tranby Engagement Hub. These organisations provide homelessness services, such as drop-in service hubs or transitional housing to people experiencing homelessness in our community.

We are about to launch our first regional services in April 2024 at RUAH in Geraldton and we are seeking volunteers to help us positively impact people in the community.

What do we need from you?

  • Be qualified hairdresser with confidence in scissor and clipper skills (2+ year Apprentices are welcome to apply, but will be supervised by a qualified hairdresser)
  • Ability to trim beards and moustaches
  • Confidence in all type of hair styles (barbering fade and lines are a bonus but not essential)
  • Have good communication skills 
  • Have an outgoing and friendly personality
  • Be available on a Monday, at least once a month.

What support do you get?

The Short Back and Sidewalks team will deliver an induction so you can learn more about what we do and how we do it. On your first service, you will be allocated a buddy who is an experienced volunteer to orient you at your first service location and to help you on your volunteering journey. Our WA Operations Coordinators are regularly in contact with you, to answer any questions you have and to work with your availability.

Are you eager to get involved? We would love to hear from you. Reach out and submit your application today by sharing your CV.
