The program
Red Cross Shops sell new and donated clothes, accessories and homewares to raise funds to help people in need. Each year, we rescue 450 tonnes of clothing from landfill, give opportunities to 5000 volunteers, and generate funds to help Red Cross support vulnerable people in Australia and around the world. The proceeds from the sale of items support the vital everyday work of Red Cross, providing relief in times of crisis and care where it's needed most.

The opportunity
Volunteer Donation Transporters assist with the collection of donations from local donation collection points in the Hobart area and delivering to our CBD shop. You will have access to the ARC van to do the collection and will require a full Australian Drivers Licence with a preference for a truck license as well or experience in driving larger vehicles in tight spaces.

Red Cross is an inclusive organisation and welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds and experience levels, so if you have some spare time and want to give back to your community we’d love to hear from you.

The impact

Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the world’s largest humanitarian network.
