Volunteer workers at NSW Stoma are valued and appreciated and play an important role in supporting our strategic objectives. Volunteer roles may include working within our operational environment to assist with roles such as stock receipt and dispatch, administration and customer service/reception or acting in a governance capacity by joining our board/executive committee.
While the majority of volunteers working within the association environment either have a stoma themselves or have a close family member who is living with a stoma, our association welcomes volunteer enquiries from any interested person.
NSW Stoma Ltd provides a clean, safe, friendly and happy work environment and we are always seeking friendly positive people to help us cope with our ever-increasing workload.
