Australian Innovation (also known as AusInnovation) encourages volunteers to get involved in our activities. We rely on volunteers to sustain our work for the annual Australian Innovation Festival as a not-for-profit initiative with industry associations, governments, education institutions and corporate organisations. We can also accommodate student internships and work experience placements.
As a relatively small organisation, our volunteer program is not overly formal, although every volunteer has a position description and supervisor. All volunteer positions attract reimbursement of luncheon and travel to a maximum of $10 per day volunteered, and any other work-related expenses.
These are the volunteers we still need in 2013:
AusInnovation is open to considering other volunteer arrangements based on individuals' interests, study requirements, skills and availability by contacting us in addition to the roles described above.
Please contact Peter Westfield to explore future volunteering positions with AusInnovation on 03 9827 2166 / 0418 251 017 or email Peter.
