IMPORTANT MESSAGE from Volunteering QueenslandAN URGENT ALERT: Employment company CareerOne has been fraudulently taking volunteer positions posted on the Volunteering Queensland website, and falsely reposting these on their site with a salary attached.

Innocent job applicants are applying for these misleading positions with the impression that they are for legitimate paid work. This is not the true case.

We apologise for this concerning situation and any inconvenience caused. Please be assured we are doing all we can to ensure that CareerOne’s misuse and misrepresentation of our volunteering positions and risk to our privacy and professional standing is stopped asap.

Please contact us on or 07 3002 7600 if you have any concerns about this scam.

We look forward to a great #NSVW20 celebrating the amazing and valuable contribution of Australia’s young volunteers.

During the extreme challenges, heartbreak, and disappointments that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented to our students in particular, this 2020 National Student Volunteer Week especially acknowledges this group of young citizens who just keep on giving and caring even during these hard times.

Join us in encouraging and thanking the young volunteers you know. Their generosity and compassion is inspiring. As active participants in and future leaders of the volunteering movement, Australia’s student volunteers deserve to be honoured not only during National Student Volunteer Week but every day for they courageously walk the talk and lead by example. 🤗
