Volunteer with us
Consumer Action is seeking volunteers to help us with our legal, research and campaigning activities. While these positions are unpaid, being a Consumer Action Volunteer will provide valuable experience from a very helpful and friendly team. You will be joining a passionate organisation dedicated to fairness and helping people who have often been ripped off. If you are studying law and can commit to at least one day a week for a period of 6 months, you might just be the person we are looking for!
Due to the pandemic, many of our staff are currently working from home. Depending on requirements at the time, you might also be volunteering from home, though we are happy to discuss this with you if you are selected for an interview.
If you are interested, please send through a one-page cover letter explaining why you would like to volunteer at Consumer Action, with your resume and academic record.
We are looking to appoint new volunteers at the beginning of March, so please send to Volunteerapplications@consumeraction.org.au by COB Friday 18 February.
