About this opportunity
The Emergency Relief Centre is a Uniting service located in Wodonga. The service was established to provide food parcels to people from the Albury-Wodonga region who are experiencing financial crisis and are having difficulty providing food for themselves.
Working in a team environment, emergency relief parcel assistants receive consumers for food parcels, and food is given according to the consumer's needs. Donated food is sorted for correct storage according to Use-By dates and Best-Before dates, ensuring food safety standards are applied and adhered too. Volunteers are expected at all times to be non-judgmental in their approach and have the ability to respond with empathy to consumers in crisis. No previous experience is necessary.
Uniting is a child safe organisation and is committed in everyday practice to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all children, at all times. As a ‘child safe’ organisation, employment with Uniting is subject to a satisfactory national (and international where relevant) police check and relevant Working with Children Check in your State prior to commencement of any paid or unpaid work and/or participation in any service or undertaking.
Uniting is also committed to equal opportunity and ensuring the workplace is reflective of the community. We encourage people from different backgrounds to apply, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people with a disability.
