• Your chance to make a real difference in the lives of people experiencing homelessness. • Contribute to the growth and success of Orange Sky New Zealand's services. • Opportunities for professional development and employment.

YOUR NEW FAMILY: Orange Sky Australia was founded in 2014, by two 20 year old mates in Brisbane. In the four years since, the service expanded to 30 vans and 1800 volunteers around Australia. In October 2018, Orange Sky NZ was launched. A non-profit in the model of Orange Sky Australia, but run by New Zealanders, for New Zealanders. OSNZ is a not-for-profit organisation providing free mobile laundry and shower services to people experiencing homelessness.

YOUR NEW ROLE: As a general volunteer, you will be required to go out on shift once a week or fortnight and make sure the van greets our friends with an awesome group of volunteers. As the general volunteer, you will be expected to communicate effectively with our Team Leaders and the Service Managers as well as with other members of our OS Family. Some of your responsibilities will include:

  • Weekly or fortnightly shift commitment
  • Communicating shift reports and incidents to our management team

To be successful, you will be organised, great with people, and have a genuine passion for helping others. You will be able to communicate effectively with people of diverse backgrounds.
