Continuing professional and academic staff members may access two days of volunteering leave per calendar year (pro-rata for part-time) to actively contribute to community-based non-profit organisations, charitable groups and groups in need of assistance. For more information check the Community Volunteering Leave guidelines.
To apply for leave, please log on to HR Online, and complete either a whole day or part day leave request depending on how long you intend to be away from the office, stating 'Personal Leave - Other' as the leave code. Under the 'Reason' pull-down menu, select 'Volunteering'. For more detailed instructions, please download the guide.
Each staff member qualifying for Volunteer Leave must complete and submit a leave form prior to the day.
Once you have applied, move on to the next step:
