Under what circumstances can I select the volunteer check type?

Volunteer checks may only be requested if you:

  • Perform the role on a voluntary basis for the benefit of the community; or
  • Not be an employee, contractor, subcontractor, staff member or officer of an organisation; or
  • not be entitled to a salary or any other entitlements or benefits associated with the position or role; or
  • be a student undertaking a compulsory vocational placement as a requirement of an Australian-based academic institution or training course.
