Volunteers

The Australian War Memorial has nearly 300 volunteers actively contributing to its mission. They assist in a wide variety of roles, both at the front-of-house and behind the scenes. Our volunteers vary in ages and backgrounds, but all have an enjoyment of interacting with visitors and sharing the stories of our nation.

Current Volunteer Positions:

The Digital Experience Section has an opportunity for a volunteer to undertake the following tasks as part of the Places of Pride: National Register of War Memorials project.

  • Data entry, such as taking content from a range of sources (spreadsheets, website and databases) to standardize the format.
  • Cross checking transcriptions and memorial location information with other sources to verify accuracy.

Ideally, you will have an interest in website development or online research.

Times are flexible, one day per week for a few months would be ideal, but the task may suit a shorter-term fulltime on off arrangement if needed.

Recruitment processes are conducted throughout the year as and when volunteers are required for specific areas.  Application forms for specific volunteer roles will be available here when opportunities arise, so please check back regularly.

Volunteers receive appropriate training relevant to their work, unless they have been recruited because of a special skill they possess. Training periods vary and are provided by expert Memorial staff and guest speakers depending upon the role.

All volunteers are eligible for discounts at the Memorial shop and cafés, as well as being able to attend the various military history lectures organised by the Memorial.
