Volunteer at Oxfam (Unpaid) - 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?
Who are we?
At Oxfam 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 New Zealand 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 supporting our work at Oxfam NZ. The additional capacity these roles bring for Oxfam are essential for us to deliver real impact for our mission. While volunteers usually help with tasks related to supporter care, we have a variety of different teams that need the support of a volunteer on an ad hoc basis.
