What we’re looking for It’s preferred that you have event coordination experience, strong communication skills and the ability to provide strong and consistent leadership to other volunteers. You will also have the ability to work under pressure, multi-task and think on your feet - all of which are crucial skills for this dynamic role.
This role will also involve networking with local businesses and the community, therefore confidence in approaching and working with a wide range of people, is essential. If you have an innovative personality and think that you will be able to organise a fun and vibrant event, you will certainly succeed in this role.
What we can offer you You’ll be joining a passionate community of staff and volunteers committed to providing animals a life worth living. You will receive ongoing support and guidance from the RSPCA Victoria Events team all the way through to event day on Sunday 16 May 2021.
