Skilled Volunteering

Skilled volunteering at Z

At Z, we’re all about solving what matters for a moving world. This commitment keeps us focused on the things that matter most, including health and safety, sustainability, our customers and our communities.

Z is an organisation of highly capable and passionate people committed to ‘live neighbourhood’. One of the ways we do this is through our Skilled Volunteering programme.

How it works

Z’s skilled volunteering programme is simple — it gives our people time to share their skills for the benefit of an organisation they want to help.

This could be a specialist skill, like what they do in their day job. Or it could be skills from outside of work like coaching, cooking and reading. It's all about sharing skills that the community needs.

If your community organisation has a task that could use some help from a Z staff member, simply email skilledvolunteering@z.co.nz

Making a difference

We want to make sure we’re making the biggest difference possible in the time available. Before volunteering, the staff member will talk with the organisation to scope out exactly what success looks like.

Working safely

Z stands for being a zero harm working environment and we take steps to ensure the places in which we work are safe. This focus is equally important to us in the organisations that our staff volunteer with.

Our expectations of organisations
