Student Placement & Volunteer Form

drummond street services loves to host work experience and student placements and/or volunteers. These positions are highly sought after and we try to accommodate as many as we can (however there is a limit!) We see this as a great opportunity to provide people with positive experiences that enable them to navigate employment and career pathways, but also to help us out whereby our little non-for-profit could use some extra expertise!

  • Diverse cultural, ‘racial’, ethnic and religious backgrounds
  • Refugee and humanitarian entrant backgrounds
  • Identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI+)
  • specific expertise in a particular area that we need further resources for
