As an organisation “by members, for members”, volunteers are central to the service of CCANZ’s mission and stakeholders — its members, the business community, our broader society across Australia and New Zealand, the planet and future generations.
CCANZ’s volunteers are a self-driven bunch of dreamers and do-ers spread across Australia and New Zealand who share a strong belief in what CCANZ is about. We operate according to the strategy, plans and goals set out by our core leadership committee. Meet the team here.
How do we work?
Our volunteers dedicate their time and skills in accordance with their nominated capacity and commitment. Volunteers decide up front how they wish to contribute to the team and report on progress to whom they are accountable to — this may be the rest of the team, their area director/team leader and/or the governance team. Depending on the role, they may work more independently or in collaboration with other team members to deliver on their goals. Our team is based all across Australia (and more recently New Zealand), so we utilise a combination of emails and an online platform (Basecamp) to collaborate and self-organise.
In addition to supporting a worthwhile cause, you also get to:
- Apply your skills and make an impact. Help bring Conscious Capitalism principles to life, support businesses and practitioners on their conscious business journeys, and contribute to elevating humanity
- Meet and work with a passionate team for an inspiring cause
- Develop professional skills and leadership
- Volunteers also receive some offers and opportunities from partners for workshops and events
Who are we seeking?
CCANZ volunteers are firstly passionate about Conscious Capitalism and share a larger, longer term vision so help grow the conscious business community. You desire to actively nurture a TACTILE culture, i.e. Trust, Accountability, Caring, Transparency, Integrity, Loyalty and Egalitarianism, and preferably are already a CCANZ member, who can represent the organisation and Conscious Capitalism practices authentically.
Some roles, such as those on the executive committee, involve more time and responsibility, and others are more fixed-term (eg. involving a project such as piece of research, implementing a process or training our team) or casual (eg. volunteering at events). Whatever that might be, you are confident you will be able to reliably put in the time required for the responsibility or tasks once you have committed to them.
Roles on the executive committee ideally require a commitment of at least one year and preferably two. You will also be willing and able to maintain regular ongoing communications using various forms of technology (we work virtually, so you will need to collaborate via email, phone, skype and on Basecamp).
As we are a community driven by members, for members, personal leadership and self-management is a defining factor in how well our we serve our members and the larger community. If you are reliable, ambitious, proactive, self-driven and take initiative, then we’re a good fit!
