COMMUNITY spirit is the only requirement on the resume for Clarence Valley residents who want to become SES volunteers.

As the 2012 storm season approaches, SES Clarence/Nambucca community engagement co-ordinator Megan Hill is encouraging locals interested in volunteering for the organisation to come forward.

Ms Hill said the SES is always on the lookout for more volunteers to work in office administration roles or operate in support, search and rescue missions out in the field.

"Our volunteers are our life- blood. Without them, the SES would not be able to meet the needs of the community.

"Our volunteers come with a wide range of skills and experiences. Becoming an SES volunteer is a great opportunity to give something back to your local community."

Ms Hill said there were more than 10,000 SES volunteers in NSW - 400 in the Clarence Valley

She said while the SES regularly welcomes an intake of volunteers throughout the year, the lead-up to the stormy season is one of the best time to join.

"All you need to become an SES volunteer is the motivation to be one.

"Our volunteers come with a wide range of skills and experi- ences and they work together to assist their local community."

Anyone interested in becoming an SES volunteer can call 1800 201 000 or visit ses.nsw.gov.au for further information.
