Current Volunteer Opportunities

Applications have now closed for the roles we advertised in March/April 2019. We will list new positions here as they become available, with our next major recruitment round to happen in mid-May 2019.

At this stage we do not have the capacity to manage general expressions of interest and only accept applications for the roles advertised on this website. If you are interested in any other roles or are unsure which role to apply for, please continue to monitor this website for new opportunities or attend an Information Evening.


ASRC Information Nights

ASRC Information Nights are a great way to learn about all the different ways you can engage with us; volunteering, campaigning, advocating, fundraising and more. You will have the opportunity to speak directly with ASRC staff and volunteers about how you can get involved.

Our most recent Info Night was held in April 2019. Future events will be listed here as they are scheduled


ASRC Corporate Volunteering

ASRC Corporate Volunteering offers businesses and other organisations a unique opportunity for their staff to contribute to supporting and empowering people seeking asylum in our community.

Our Corporate Volunteering program provides opportunities for participants to either assist the Foodbank and the Community Kitchen at our Footscray Centre, or participate in our Harvest Of Hope Community Garden in Clayton.

Throughout the day participants witness firsthand the scope and scale of the work of the ASRC and leave with the positive knowledge that their contribution has had a positive impact for people seeking asylum.

Feedback from past participants has been positive with many organisations and individuals returning to volunteer with us on a number of occasions.

To organise your volunteering day with us first download our Corporate Volunteering Info Pack.

If after reading the Info Pack you would like to organise a date for your corporate volunteering, please fill in this online form.

If you have any additional questions, please email volunteer@asrc.org.au with the subject line “Corporate Volunteering Inquiry: [Your Name]”.


Student Placements and Practical Legal Training

The ASRC takes students from a variety of courses and institutions including universities and TAFE however there are a limited number of placements and we employ a rigorous selection process. Opportunities for student placements will be advertised here when available.
