Positions Vacant

Would you like to contribute to U3A Port Phillip? Below are our current opportunities for volunteers. For our volunteer roles we usually try to recruit a team, so that they can back each other up if someone is travelling, ill, or just unexpectedly busy, and so that succession planning is easier. So don't be afraid to put your hand up - the job will not be too onerous. And the more volunteers we have, the easier it is for everyone.

Office Volunteers

Our Office is manned (personned?) from 9:30 to 3:30 each day. Volunteers work one half day a fortnight. It involves responding to communications from members who come in person or who phone, and also providing some support for the tutors and class monitors who are running classes during that half day period. If you are comfortable using a computer or a tablet, you can also read and respond to emails, and put data into our on-line systems. Training is provided for all new volunteers.

Office Volunteers, computer tasks

As we increase our use of on-line systems, there are more tasks to be done using a computer. We are looking for volunteers who can spend half an hour to an hour, one day a fortnight (maybe before or after a class you attend) to assist with computer-related tasks.

Committee member

Our Committee of Management currently has one member fewer than the maximum allowed by our Rules. Committee members take on a portfolio area for which they are principally (but not solely) responsible. If you're interested and you'd like to find out more about what portfolio options there are, send an email to [email protected] and you will be invited to discuss options further.
