Helping you navigate vaccination requirements when volunteering 

Helping you navigate vaccination requirements when volunteering 

Trying to find the right volunteer opportunity can take time. SEEK Volunteer has many useful ways which can help you search thousands of opportunities to help fast track your journey to volunteering.

SEEK Volunteer can now help you understand when a role requires a volunteer to be fully vaccinated.

There are certain situations where it is lawful or essential (a government mandate) for an organisation to request confirmation of a volunteers COVID-19 vaccination status.

We’ve added COVID-19 vaccination status to the list of ‘requirements’ organisations can select when listing their opportunity. Including this in the list of requirements speeds up the process of matching suitable volunteers with these organisations.

Where you will find this information

When you click on the advertisement for the volunteer opportunity, at the bottom right-hand corner there is a list of ‘Requirements’. This includes requirements such as a drivers licence, a working with children check or police check. You will now see listed here ‘COVID-19 vaccination’, should it be required.

It is the organisations responsibility to confirm your compliance with any requirements listed here.

If you’d like to know more

More information and links to further resources about volunteering and the COVID-19 vaccination are available in our FAQ’s.
