We are your one-stop-shop for volunteer recruitment!

Underpinned by a national volunteer referral database known as VIKTOR, our referral service is your key tool for getting volunteers on board.

Insured and uninsured volunteer-involving organisations who benefit the common good are able to advertise their volunteering opportunities on our website. Insured organisations have the positions they list with us automatically added to GoVolunteer and SEEK Volunteer.

Every year we see over 10,000 referrals take place through our service. Plus, our website gets well over one million views!

Register with us

Our service is available for all volunteer-involving organisations, branches and divisions whose purpose is for the common good. Registration involves becoming a FULL or ASSOCIATE member via our tiered financial membership options that provide many valuable and rewarding benefits.

When you register for our service you can:

  • Upload a profile about your organisation
  • Place, edit and manage your volunteer positions
  • Receive applications directly from the many and varied volunteers who visit our website every day

Having the following on hand will assist you during your registration process:

  • A mission statement that reflects your organisation's purpose and values - show potential volunteers why your cause is important
  • Details of your programs and/or services
  • Your ABN
  • Insurance details that include Public Liability Insurance and/or Volunteer Personal Accident Insurance

We recommend that your organisation maintains Public Liability Insurance and Volunteer Personal Accident Insurance. If your organisation does not have one or both of these insurances this will be featured on any volunteering opportunities you place. Volunteers applying for your roles will be alerted that they will be engaging with your organisation at their own risk.

Please note, applications are subject to approval in order to establish that the purpose of the applying organisation in no way conflicts with the objectives of Volunteering Queensland. You will not be able to login or use our online volunteer referral service until your application has been approved. The outcome of your application will be emailed to you within 5 business days or contact made with you for clarification.

Good volunteer management practice

Is your organisation new to involving volunteers?

View our information sheet which covers how to develop a rationale for volunteer involvement. This will inform all decisions and actions your organisation and staff make, which may impact volunteers. By having a clearly stated philosophy for involving volunteers it demonstrates that management considers volunteers as crucial to achieving the organisation’s mission.

We encourage all volunteer-involving organisations to follow a code of practice to enhance volunteer experiences and comply with legislation and duty of care.

We recommend that organisations have appropriate and current Public Liability and Volunteer Personal Accident insurance.

Organisations should be aware of and follow the National Standards for Volunteer Involvement, a framework for best practice in volunteer management.

Volunteering Queensland and its members support the national definition of volunteering.

Visit our resources and research sections to find tools, templates, information sheets, case studies and reports to help you address risk and recruit, retain and reward a volunteer workforce.
