Volunteer at Oxfam (Unpaid) Unwrapped Volunteer Expression of Interest! Join us at Oxfam, where we’re ending the injustice of poverty.
For everyone. For good.
Want to make a difference to the lives of people across the globe, by supporting Oxfam in a volunteer capacity with one of our biggest fundraising campaigns of the year?
Who are we?
At Oxfam Aotearoa we work alongside people impacted by disasters, and help them rebuild afterwards. We confront the causes that keep people poor, like extreme inequality, discrimination against women, climate change, and the eviction of people from their land. We work alongside people living in less wealthy countries to build better lives for themselves. For Oxfam staff this work gets us out of bed with the certainty that our work day is making a difference. At Oxfam Aotearoa we work alongside those in the Pacific Islands and South East Asia.

We're always on the lookout for passionate people who want to donate their time to support our work at Oxfam Aotearoa. The additional capacity volunteers bring to Oxfam are essential for us to deliver real impact for our mission, and are incredibly valued. This particular opportunity focuses around our Oxfam Unwrapped appeal, one of our biggest fundraising campaigns of the year, and you will be instrumental in helping us deliver an appeal that will make a real difference.
What is Oxfam Unwrapped?
Oxfam Unwrapped is our flagship Christmas appeal, where supporters purchase cards to order and share with family and friends. Each card represents a donation made to Oxfam Aotearoa. We look forward to expanding our volunteer team to help fulfil this wonderful program.
