RSPCA Qld provides a Volunteer Ambulance service on the Gold Coast dedicated to rescue any sick, injured or orphaned animals in the Gold Coast City Council area.

Working from home (in a vehicle that we provide with iphone and ipad) you would be responsible for actioning jobs that come in via the call centre that are dispatched via the Inspectorate.  Your duties in these situations would vary depending on your level of skill and experience. This is not your typical role Volunteering at a shelter environment as we need people who are independent and can be flexible to accomodate needs on a daily basis. An ability to deal constructively with stressful situations, and to remain calm in confronting situations, is of high importance.

Skills required – Animal handling skills, attention to detail for paperwork admissions, good driving record with ability to use GPS navigating systems, Apple iphone and ipad devices. Email proficiency in sending and receiving photos and emails.

Volunteer characteristics required – Confidence, commitment, dedication, reliability and willingness to be a passionate advocate for animal welfare in Queensland. Couples/friends are eligible to work together in this role with one being a Driver and the other an Assistant.

Shifts: Wednesday 8-5pm (DRIVER), Friday 8-5pm (DRIVER), Saturday (fortnightly) 8-5pm (DRIVER) and Sunday from 8-5pm (DRIVER)

This vehicle has a manual transmission, so please make sure you have your manual license.

Benefits – Relevant experience in the Animal Care field; ability to assist animals in need on the front line; learn from an experienced RSPCA Ambulance Officer; be part of a highly respected team; member benefits including the Mark Your Mark Reward & Recognition Program.

If you have any questions about this role, please contact the Volunteer Ambulance Coordinator. Ph (07) 3426 9960 or via email

Please only apply for this role if you are want to make the commitment and have a work/life balance. Due to the time involved in training new Volunteers to become Ambulance Drivers, we are only looking for those who will be able to maintain their commitment ongoing.

Note: Due to insurance purposes our Ambulance Drivers only must be 21 or over (and hold and open license).
