Newcastle Now welcomes volunteers and has opportunities available for locals wishing to contribute to our strategic vision of creating a vibrant city centre where businesses are successful and residents, workers and visitors enjoy a unique lifestyle. Our volunteers are a highly valued support team, not only do they perform a valuable service but they also have a lot of fun while they work.  Many firm friendships have grown from their collaborative efforts to revitalise our city.

City Ambassador Program

Newcastle Now coordinates a City Ambassador program with a team of over 50 volunteers who are trained to provide a range of services for our members and visitors to the city.

  • Our Business Referral Ambassadors liaise with member businesses and attend B2Bs to meet members and help promote their business. Newcastle Now members can invite our City Ambassadors for a familiarisation session at their business.
  • Our Visitor Service Ambassadors provide roving tourism information services for visitors.
  • Our City Monitor Ambassadors act as ears and eyes on the streets and report on cleanliness, safety and crime prevention.
  • Our Promotional Ambassadors distribute relevant promotional material to member businesses and visitors. 
  • Our Event Ambassadors work as information guides, ushers and set up crew at large-scale events happening in the city.  

Volunteer at Nobbys Lighthouse

Newcastle Now currently leases the Nobbys Lighthouse site from the NSW State Government and opens the grounds to the public every Sunday from 10am-4pm. We also open the site when cruise ships are in port for the day, giving passengers the opportunity to visit this iconic landmark. Many of our volunteers choose to work at the Lighthouse as visitor service Ambassadors.
