Volunteering with Citizens Advice Bureau is an interesting and rewarding way to ‘give back’ to the Western Australian community. Our volunteers come from diverse backgrounds – but the thing they have in common is their strong desire to help others, their ability to communicate clearly and concisely, their great customer service skills and their computer skills.
A typical day in the life of one of our volunteers includes time on the phone, answering queries from our clients and booking appointments for our legal team. They also spend time talking to clients face to face on our reception desk, handling cash and providing information and referrals.
To become a volunteer, apply for any of our current vacancies.
Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain. You can read more about volunteering in Australia on the Volunteering Australia website.
When you are a volunteer you:
- choose to give your skills and time
- help the community and the not-for-profit organisation you volunteer with
- get something out of it yourself
- do it for free
- work in a specially assigned volunteer role
We can offer opportunities for skilled volunteers to give their time in a professional capacity:
Pro-bono solicitors – We welcome expressions of interest from solicitors who hold a current practicing certificate in Western Australia to provide legal advice on a pro-bono basis at our branches throughout Western Australia. For more information, contact us.
Mediators – We welcome expressions of interest from qualified mediators to join our mediation panel on a voluntary basis. For more information, contact us.
