Working in the Field
Brien Holden Vision Institute welcomes supporters who choose to spend time working within our programs on short and long term assignments. We are offering short-term assignment opportunities to those who are skilled, enthusiastic, adaptable, and eager to make a difference in eye care provision worldwide.
Become a mentor
We believe mentoring is a powerful and effective way of transferring knowledge, skills and experience. Joining our mentoring program gives you an opportunity to give new optometric professionals the confidence, guidance and support to contribute to vision for everyone…everywhere.
The Eye Health Mentor program is currently accepting applications for mentors to assist in Malawi and Kenya.
JESSIE HUANG - VOLUNTEER
The successful candidate will be required to assume the position for a minimum duration of one year and relocate within a reasonable time. These opportunities are available on a periodic basis, and interested individuals are invited to apply at any time.
Applicants will be contacted when specific opportunities arise to assess their availability and continued interest.
Work in Australian Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Communities
Optometrists, contracted by the Institute, are vital partners in sustainable Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander service delivery programs. Working on a contract basis offers flexibility, interesting travel opportunities to rural and remote destinations within Australia, and exposure to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. If you would like to offer your skills on a one-off, or regular basis, please register your interest by contacting us.
The Institute’s policies and guidelines for supporters who work with us follow the best practice as outlined in the National Standards for Volunteer Involvement in Not For Profit Organisations by Volunteering Australia.
