Volunteers Guideline

Some people who are not Fully Eligible for jobactive services can Volunteer to receive employment assistance.  

From 9 December 2019, newly registered Volunteers are eligible for the Volunteer Online Employment Services Trial (VOEST) for a period of 12 months. 

VOEST provides job seekers with access to online resources to understand employer needs, develop a résumé, get tips on and use tools for interviews, undertake job searches and apply for jobs. 

Volunteers who registered prior to 9 December 2019 or who reside in either the Yarrabah Community or on Norfolk Island can continue to receive assistance in Stream A for up to six months. Volunteers are eligible to access this assistance once, unless they have a significant change of circumstances which results in them becoming a Fully Eligible Participant.
