Oaktree is an ambitious non-for-profit, with the mission of young people leading, demanding and creating a just world. Our volunteers are our biggest strength at Oaktree, so it’s incredibly important to efficiently recruit, train and maintain a strong volunteer base. At Oaktree, we believe that young Australians can create a more just and sustainable world by backing locally-led youth-centred organisations around the Asia-Pacific.


As a Recruitment Coordinator, you will be steering the recruitment arm of the Community  Organising team. You will coordinate organisation wide recruitment by developing an effective recruitment strategy and ensuring our processes are inclusive and produce ideal candidates. You will also work with the Chief Community Organiser to ensure Oaktree’s internal team of dedicated volunteers are continually engaged and inspired.

  • Maintain our recruitment tracker to ensure we have valuable data to support decision making and end of year reporting.
  • Act as the liaison in communicating with external organisations to raise awareness regarding volunteering opportunities at Oaktree.
  • Act as the “go-to” recruitment guru in handling recruitment inquiries across the organisation.
