Volunteer Seasonal Caretaker

Love volunteering, camping, meeting new people and supporting the community? The Volunteer Seasonal Caretaker role at the Town of Port Hedland might be the perfect way for you to enjoy a warm and purposeful winter.

During the Australian winter, travel in the north of Western Australia is at a premium. To assist people accessing the Port Hedland region, the Town of Port Hedland facilitates access to the RV overflow camp site on McGregor Street. This area enables people to park their RVs and other vehicles for accommodation purposes. The Town relies on volunteer/s who are staying at the RV overflow to welcome new campers, keep watch and report to the Town if there are any issues that need to be addressed.

The assistance required as the Voluntary Seasonal Caretaker at our RV area is very much a customer orientated kind of assistance. If you like having a chat then you will be in your element. You are not expected to be on duty all day every day; after all you are on vacation with some voluntary work for the Town thrown in.

From time to time, the Town will require assistance from you as Voluntary Seasonal Caretaker to help with the following tasks during the Season:

  • Welcome new campers, allocate camp locations if required and monitor overcrowding,
  • Liaise with Town officers Monitor illegal camping and over-stayers,
  • Report litter and campsite conditions after departure,
  • Report problems, issues, complaints or concerns,
  • Meet the Team Leader Rangers at the Town once a week or as required to discuss any concerns,
  • Provide information regarding fires, fishing, rules, regulations and policies, and
  • Enjoy yourselves and get plenty of down time.

It would be expected that the caretaker be contactable at least 2hrs in the morning for check-outs and 2hrs in the evening for check-ins or as per agreed with the Team Leader Rangers. The actual times will be left to the discretion of the caretaker and based on people movements. Volunteer/s will need to provide a recent National Police Clearance and Working With Children check.

As the Voluntary Seasonal Caretaker you will be assisting the Town on a voluntary basis. To support you during this volunteer opportunity:

  • You can stay on site free of charge for the season.
  • Power and potable water connections.
  • You will be reimbursed for approved out of pocket expenses whilst under this arrangement (to a maximum of $200/week).

If you have any questions about the role please contact Keryn on 08 9158 9321 or email recruitment@porthedland.wa.gov.au
