The Mission of Furry Friends Animal Rescue Queensland is to minimise the large number of companion animals killed every year in pounds and shelters; and to educate people about the benefits of responsible pet ownership.
Opportunities for volunteers:
Furry Friends Animal Rescue Queensland is currently on an exciting journey of growth and are seeking skilled, committed and passionate individuals to volunteer with the organisation from across Australia.
As a Volunteer organisation, we recognise that we are as strong as our dedicated people, and are seeking committed volunteers who can work with a strong sense of ownership to assist in growing our organisation and driving our mission forward.
To thrive at Furry Friends Animal Rescue Queensland, you will have a strong sense of role ownership and will be persistent and resilient by nature; the initiative to multi-task and work with minimal supervision; and the drive to delve into and understand the core functions of your role. You will also be a creative thinker – favouring an active approach to problem solving, including ways to work smarter.
What we offer you:
This is an opportunity for personal and professional growth and fulfilment through teamwork to make a direct and positive impact on the lives of homeless pets.
This is also a great opportunity to work and collaborate within a virtual team environment; engage with multiple stakeholders; and to sharpen your skills and put your individual stamp on the role. At Furry Friends Animal Rescue Queensland, we encourage volunteer involvement; recognise individual contribution; and support the expansion of roles to utilise the talents and abilities of our volunteers.
About the role:
Leverage your event and/or fundraising experience to assist us in achieving fundraising targets. Together, you will leverage networks, build relationships with key stakeholders and raise awareness of our brand and mission in the community through events and other initiatives.
This role requires an average contribution of 5-10 hours per week and attending a minimum 50% of our events in South East QLD is a requirement. Coordinating all the events online in our networked FB groups and Google shared drive is part of the role.
This role would suit candidates who have worked in the event/tourism industry (or currently working part-time in the industry), those with qualifications in event management, retirees, stay at home parents and more.
