Epilepsy NZ needs a range of support from volunteers to help us do our job better both at our national office, and in the regions, cities and towns. We have a list of volunteer positions that will enable our organisation to perform at a much higher level to better serve people with epilepsy so they can achieve a better quality life.

Role Descriptions

We are in the process of writing role descriptions for each of the positions. Please email leon@epilepsy.org.nz to express your interest in one or more of our volunteer positions and let us know what skill sets and/or experience you have that will contribute.

If you do not have experience for the role that interests you, please contact us anyway, as we are happy to look at what you have to offer. We may train you for the position if appropriate or discuss with you other opportunities that we have. We are more interested in people with good enthusiasm and right attitude to help out rather than evaluating someone based on experience and skill set alone.

Once we have finalised volunteer positions, and have drafted the description for the particular role, we will contact you to confirm that the role is open for applying for. To apply for the role, download the volunteer application form below and email this completed to leon@epilepsy.org.nz
