Volunteer With Us

Volunteer meaning – ‘willing or of one’s own choice’

We place immense value on the generous gifts of time Volunteers offer to the Bone Marrow Cancer Trust and Rānui House. Every day we provide accommodation and support for up to 26 patients and their families – and we can’t do this alone. Volunteers contribute hugely in helping us to provide our home-away-from-home. We are looking for new Volunteers to join our team and lend a helping hand – sound like you? Then apply to join our team!

Angles in Aprons – work alongside our talented Housekeeping team to help us keep Rānui House spic and span.  You might be in the laundry, on the end of a vacuum cleaner or practicing your hospital corners bed-making – heaps of variety and a whole lot of fun.

Cakey Buffet Creator – we are looking for a volunteer to fill this role on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.  You will be baking from our kitchen in Big Rānui, chatting with families who usually pop down when the delicious smells emanate throughout the House and making all manner of tasty treats for our Cakey Buffet for the families to enjoy.

Girl or Boy Friday – this role is primarily admin, working out of our office supporting our team and family enquiries.  You will be an expert phone answerer, admin wizard and enjoy a wide variety of admin tasks.

Social Media Mascot – calling those fabulous individuals who have the gift of the gab with social media!  Creating posts, planning and preparing content, taking photos and little movies of our place and team.

Grants Guru – we would love someone to join our team to help us with our grant researching, preparation and writing – you will need to have previous experience for this role and have a wonderful talent for writing compelling proposals to support our existing and planned programme activities.


The fine print – we will ask for character references as part of Volunteer enrolment, we prefer your referees not to be family members, past or present employers are preferred. All members of our team are required to complete a NZ Police Check. If you are happy with both of these points and give your consent for us to contact you directly please sign up using the form below. We will be back in touch within 72 hours.
