To encourage greater community involvement, Australian organisations can become an Australian partner organisation. This includes government departments, educational institutions, non government organisations (NGOs) and private sector enterprises.
This is a great way for Australian organisations to develop new relationships with organisations overseas, or to strengthen existing links. Working with the volunteer service providers, Australian partner organisations can collaborate with a host organisation to develop an appropriate assignment linked to their organisation's skills and experience. Australian partner organisations can also propose an appropriately qualified candidate (such as a member of their staff) to enter the competitive recruitment process managed by the volunteer service provider.
