Volunteer & Event Coordinator

Website HeroWork Victoria

HeroWork is a registered charity that transforms other charities by renovating their buildings through huge community events we call Radical Renovations. Annually these events bring together close to 1000 individual volunteers and over 200 sponsors to complete professionally designed, comprehensive transformations of charity spaces for a fraction of estimated fair market value.

Simply stated, these critical social projects would not happen without HeroWork and our incredible family of dedicated volunteers and community leaders. We take community service to the next level.

Imagine Extreme Home Makeover, but rather than lifting-up a single family, each one of our two projects annually will lift-up an entire vulnerable community by building up the charities that directly serves them.

At HeroWork, you can truly bring your higher purpose to life through the work and transformative, life-changing magic you get to perform every day!

Who we are:
We are a small team with big hearts who are passionate about transforming charity buildings to increase their impact on the community being served.  Having fun and bringing a sense of humour to work is important to us and is part of the culture our volunteers come to expect during Radical Renovations.  You are great at organization and coordination supplemented with great flexibility that allows you to modify plans and roll with unexpected developments when needed.  You enjoy working within a team and are willing to support your team members with an ”all hands on deck” attitude and actions, when needed.

What we’d like to see in you:
You can juggle multiple tasks while maintaining open lines of communication; have a positive attitude, possess a willingness to learn and get your hands dirty.  During the project you will act as super host, keen supporter, and knowledgeable mentor to our diverse volunteer base.  Our entire team is expected to lead by example.

HeroWork completes two projects each year (spring and fall).  During these projects which are typically 8-12 weeks in length, your hours of work will be longer and your working days shift to Wednesday to Sunday with Monday/Tuesday off.  When not in projects, your working days go back to Monday to Friday and normal work hours.
