Volunteer Opportunities



Do you enjoy creating social posts or structuring content calendars? Are you wanting to learn about product photography? We are looking for enthusiastic, eco-driven individuals to help us help in our Marketing Department.



We are in need of people passionate about the NFP sector and looking to come up with fundraising strategies and apply for grants. Being cheaper for the community means we rely on help from volunteers to keep our boats a float.

Volunteers make up the majority of the team that keep the Co-op thriving. Volunteers are the glue that keeps the Co-op together and our community alive.

Why we value our volunteers
Our community relies on the Co-op to consistently offer a valuable alternative to mainstream supermarket shopping. By committing to volunteer with the Co-op, you not only support us to be able to provide ethically sourced organic products at a reasonable price, you’re helping to ensure that the Co-op remains open. And that’s a good thing for everyone, and especially our planet.
What will I be doing when I volunteer
The Manly Food Co-op relies on volunteers for running all parts of the business. Primarily we need volunteers to help out in the shop, but there are also many other roles in marketing, ordering, accounting, waste management …

Shop Volunteers assist staff members to help keep the Co-op running as smoothly as possible. On a typical shift, you may spend your time:

  • Filling up containers and re-stocking
  • Cleaning and helping to keep the shop tidy
  • Welcoming and assisting customers with their shopping
  • Educating customers about “how to shop Co-op”
Why volunteer
Volunteering at the Co-op is a fantastic way to save money, meet like-minded locals and learn about our products and the business

  • Develop new skills
  • Connect with your community and make it a better place
  • Be part of a business creating positive change
  • Earn energy points that save an additional 10% on your shopping
What commitment is required

We welcome everyone who wants to volunteer, no matter what their availability is. But to make it relevant and enjoyable you should be able to commit to a minimum of 4 hours per month. This ensures that you get the most out of the experience and also that the time we invest in training you is well spent.

Many volunteers offer more time than this and we’re sure you’ll find that you will get a lot out of the experience, in addition to the extra discounts off shopping that you’ll receive!
