We are seeking a professional, kind and experienced person to lead our small Maintenance Team at Hoofbeats Sanctuary in Doonan.
The team is responsible for keeping the sanctuary as safe and comfortable for volunteers and for the horses and ponies in our Equine Therapy herd.
Activities can include: painting, fencing, making pathways, minor construction jobs, hanging gates, building compost bays etc., using a quad bike and manure vacuum to pick up and transport manure, bagging up manure for us to sell, clearing paddocks of fallen branches and debris, mulching, mowing, machinery maintenance etc.
The Team Leader will be responsible for prioritising and scheduling tasks, ensuring that all work is done to a high standard, liaising with tradespeople for larger jobs and developing a maintenance schedule for regular tasks.
The sanctuary is a safe space for victims of trauma, neglect and abuse - both humans and horses. As such, it is absolutely vital that everyone on site is treated with the utmost kindness and respect at all times. Maintaining this high standard within the members of the maintenance team will also be a key responsibility.
