Current Volunteer Vacancies

Volunteering opportunities with the City of Marion cover a number of areas where volunteers work. We appreciate the great work that volunteers do for our community.

Many of our volunteer programs, roles and centres have been impacted by the coronavirus limiting the volunteer opportunities we have on offer. If you would like to volunteer during this time please apply via the SkillMatch program.

SkillMatch Volunteering

SkillMatch volunteering is a way we are trying to provide opportunities for people with unique interests, skills, and expertise to volunteer their knowledge to the community, while adding value to the City of Marion’s core business - serving our community.

Potential volunteers may approach Council with ideas for roles, or, can be placed in areas where program or project based opportunities have been identified and match the applicants skills and interests.

Please take the time to fully articulate your vision for what you feel you could bring to the community that our volunteer roles do not currently cater for. There are considerations we must make in approving new volunteer roles and this of course will be discussed in tandem with applicants. However, we are very keen to facilitate ways in which the diverse members of our community can make the City of Marion a better and more interesting place to live!

Please click on our online applications to apply. If you have any questions, please email Vanita Schwarz at or phone on 8375 6636
