Volunteer Jobs at The Oasis
Connections Coordination Team
This Team will be the lynchpin to organising the optimal use of the huts for community groups and associations. The Huts of The Oasis Townsville are specifically intended to provide a place to meet and connect for any group that needs a place to meet for a craft, music, hobby, or just a monthly get together. We have four spaces for use. And each group seeking a booking needs to be managed and fitted into the routine of Home Base.
Friendly and approachable
Wellbeing Program Team
This Team resides in the Wellbeing Hut and supports the needs of members of the veteran community by helping them find what they are looking for in the way of services in Townsville. We call them Wellbeing Navigators. In some cases all that is required is to listen and support a veteran or family member and perhaps find a service that suits from our comprehensive Service Directory; in other cases, the more challenging individuals and families will require support from a skilled Wellbeing Navigator who is more closely qualified as a social worker. We can manage any and all of these people along this continuum and will provide whatever training and skilling is necessary to grow the capability of our Wellbeing Navigators.
Rest assured we will only ever assign a case for which our Navigator and Wellbeing Program Manager have complete confidence it is within the skills and capabilities of the potentially assigned Wellbeing Navigator.
This Team also contains our Compensation Advocate capability. These people have begun a competency based training regime to qualify as compensation advocates.

Local Security Team
We have many cameras and alarm systems on the building which are connected to a security company. That company does patrols also. But we really need a team who live nearby and can routinely observe the environs of Home Base.
Live local (preferably within a street)
Often outside or moving through the area
Happy to record and report anything that might be out of the norm
Home Base is a 5000m2 block with significant gardens. We have a gardening contractor to do routine maintenance like pruning and mowing. But we need a more regular group attending to blowing leaves, sweeping paths, identifying problems particularly with sprinklers etc.
Good with the operation of tools
Meet and Greet Team
This Team is made up of volunteers who ensure there is someone around who will ensure no one arrives and is left looking lost. The Team is able to direct enquiries to the right area to be dealt with. It is important for members of the Meet and Greet Team to know who does what within The Oasis Townsville and ensure all questions are answered.
friendly open nature
Employment Coordination Team
This team supports the Employment Coordinator. There are many agencies and organisations involved in the employment space. The team will be largely a networking team that keep The Oasis Townsville connected to the likes of Townsville businesses (through the Veterans Business Alliance), Jobs Townsville, Chamber of Commerce, Veteran Community Business Chamber, Princes' Trust, NEIS Program of the COmmonwealth Department of Employment etc....
Friendly and positive
