[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”small” position=”left” gradient_color=”yes” thickness=”5″ width=”50″ up=”25″ down=”50″][vc_column_text]With only 10.5 full-time equivalent employees, our team is small but our impact is large.

We employ people in each of our five locations – three in Perth (Cottesloe, St John of God and Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital), and two in regional Western Australia (Bunbury and Albany). We employ people that bring a range of experience, skill-sets and disciplines to Solaris including psychologists, counsellors, managers, client services, accountants and marketing.

When we are recruiting, we look for individuals with the right experience, qualifications, behaviours and knowledge to successfully carry out our vision, and we also look at attitude and motivation to positively contribute to our values.

We invest in our people so they have the right skills and a healthy culture in which to thrive. We are always seeking talented, compassionate and enthusiastic people to join our team.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][button size=”large” target=”_self” hover_type=”default” text=”Apply for vacant positions or express interest” link=”https://solariscancercare.org.au/our-team/join-the-team/”][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]


[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”small” position=”left” gradient_color=”yes” thickness=”5″ width=”50″ up=”25″ down=”50″][vc_column_text]We all have different motivations to volunteer.  It might be that you are looking to meet new people, learn new skills, share your knowledge or giving a helping hand we want it to be worthwhile and meaningful.  You may have recently retired, or may be at the start of your career.  Or you may wish to stay connected to the community where you live.

Solaris is incredibly proud of our 350 volunteers – all that give their time to help cancer patients on their cancer journey.  Every single one makes a difference.  And you can too.

As well as bringing our patients benefits, it can bring you immense benefits too.  Here’s a couple to think about:

  1. Stay connected –  it helps you to connect to the community where you live.  With five centres across Western Australia, you will contribute to your local community and the wider Solaris network.
  2. Decrease your stress – Studies suggest that people who focus on someone other than yourself decrease their own stress levels.
  3. It can boost your career – this applies at all stages of your career.
  4. You’ll learn new skills – whether it is how to be compassionate towards people going through cancer, or learning new technology.  It keeps your brain stimulated.
  5. You’ll make an impact – you will provide real, lasting value to people very much in need.
  6. Get a new perspective – sometimes volunteering can change the way you see the world.  You’ll come into contact with people from different backgrounds, different life stories of happiness or hardship, and you have the opportunity to learn from them every day.
  7. You’ll have fun – volunteering isn’t all about work.  It can be as fun as you want it to be – particularly the fundraising!
  8. You’ll be inspired – our Founder is an incredibly inspiring individual, as is each and every volunteer, not to mention our incredible patients.  Every day there is an opportunity for you to be inspired by someone’s story or contribution.
