Through Volunteer Connect, volunteers can search the database for vacancies, and co-ordinators or managers, like you, can place free advertisements for volunteer positions.

To place a free advertisement, you will need to first register with Volunteer Connect, using the form located on the For Organisations hub page, under the list a role tab.

Once your registration has been processed, you will be sent an email containing your login details. Please be aware that this may take up to a week.

Once your login details have been received, you will be able to list volunteer positions on Volunteer Connect Online. To maximise your ad exposure and searchability, please review this Tip Sheet first.

Volunteering Tasmania run Community of Practice sessions with Volunteer Managers and for Volunteer Programs.

Volunteer Program Community of Practice sessions are running for organisations who received HACC or CHSP funding to explore best practice volunteer management practices, gaps and navigate challenges together. To find out more about these sessions please contact us.
