Being overseas may have heightened your sense of the problems New Zealand faces, and where you might volunteer locally to make a difference.

Volunteering closer to home may give continuity with your overseas work. It could also provide new links in your community and networks for job seeking. If you want to volunteer locally:

  • Volunteering New Zealand is the umbrella group for volunteer organisations, and the national voice for volunteering and volunteers in this country. 
  • Seekvolunteer, ‘for people who seek to do more’ is an offshoot of the job-finding site, Seek.
  • DoGoodJobs connects job seekers with not-for-profits and social enterprises, if you’re looking for paid work in that sector.
