The Heart Foundation are looking for big-hearted volunteer Area Coordinators to play a key role in the organisation of our biggest fundraiser of the year – the Big Heart Appeal!

Heart disease is New Zealand’s single biggest killer and claims the life of one person every 90 minutes. Many of these deaths are premature and preventable. Donations raised through the Big Heart Appeal will fund cutting-edge research into heart disease and specialist training for New Zealand cardiologists.

Our Big Heart Appeal team will assist you along the way and will provide everything you will need for a successful collection, including a detailed brief beforehand, volunteer rosters, street collection equipment and site permits.

Tasks include: • Liaise with and provide support for volunteer street collectors in your area during the street collection. • Receive and distribute street collector equipment (buckets, bibs, stickers) to the volunteers. Then once volunteers have collected, gather the equipment up so the Heart Foundation can arrange to have it picked up from your place in the weeks after the collection • Visiting the sites in your area to ensure everything is running smoothly during the two days of the street collection. • Arrange banking of the donated funds to your closest ASB bank. • Being the first point of contact for volunteer street collectors and trouble-shooting any issues that may arise on the two appeal days.

Skills and requirements: • Passionate and aligned with the Heart Foundation’s mission and the heart health cause • A reliable and organised self-starter • Excellent communication skills • Confident when coordinating a team of volunteers • Basic email skills • Current driver’s licence (access to a vehicle would be preferable). • You will need to have regular access to email, the internet and a working mobile phone • Please note that expenses for pre-approved local travel can be compensated. We look forward to hearing from you. [email protected] or phone 0800 244 432
