Autism Swim is a multi-disciplinary organisation, and we thrive on keeping our team as diverse as possible. Those with other abilities are always strongly encouraged to apply for all positions.
SURFING CERTIFICATION WORKING COMMITTEE MEMBERS NEEDED
Yes, that’s right! Another world-first from Autism Swim. This means surfing teachers all over the world, can become specialized in teaching those with other abilities.
We’re now looking for 3-5 legends who would like to join a working committee, in developing the content for this. We would especially love to hear from Occupational Therapists, Surfing Teachers and those with other abilities.
The committee members will give their time pro bono, in framing up the content essentials for this amazing world-first opportunity. Expected commitment of time is around 30 hours in entirety, broken up according to yours and the project’s needs. As a way of saying thanks, you will become Autism Swim Approved at no cost, throughout your journey with this project.
If you’re interested, please send your CV and cover letter through to firstname.lastname@example.org, explaining your motivation for wanting to be a part of this. Applications close 30th September, 2020. Project commences 5th October, 2020.
NSW POLICE RESCUE WORKING COMMITTEE MEMBERS NEEDED
We are currently spear-heading a project with the NSW Police and Rescue team, which is centered on refiningtheir search and rescue processes for those with autism and communication challenges (including dementia) who wander. We are looking at awareness building in the community (video and podcasts), police up-skilling, database enhancements and assistive tech devices, to name just a few.
Dementia Australia is also part of the working committee, and now we need an Occupational Therapist and an adult with other abilities to join. The committee members will give their time pro bono.
If you’re interested, please send your CV and cover letter through to email@example.com, explaining your motivation for wanting to be a part of this.
Skilled volunteering is always warmly welcomed.
Please note that non-skilled volunteering requests can be difficult to facilitate due to the fact that there are certain prerequisites required in getting in the water with Autism Swim participants, and that extra people can cause over-stimulation and anxiety.
Any current paid vacancies will be displayed on this page when they become available, and will also be advertised in our monthly newsletter.
