– City of Ballarat Director of Development and Planning Angelique Lush
The Ballarat Visitor Information Centre currently has 60 volunteers. Under the Ballarat Ambassadors program, this number will increase to at least 100.
Anyone with a passion for Ballarat can apply – particularly current Visitor Information Centre volunteers – via an application form on the City of Ballarat website at https://www.ballarat.vic.gov.au/current-vacancies
This is a great opportunity to volunteer as a Ballarat Ambassador, where you’ll meet new people, learn more about the city you live in, experience Ballarat’s great events, and share your knowledge and love for the city with others.
Our Ballarat Ambassadors will help us deliver a new, broader-based city-wide approach to building the visitor economy. This approach will capture and promote the full range of benefits of living, working and visiting Ballarat. Most importantly, it will go beyond simply attracting visitors to selling Ballarat as the ideal destination to live and work.
This is a new era for tourism services in Ballarat and we want to expand and open up our tourism volunteering positions to a wide range of people who may have never considered volunteering in this particular area before.
