Candy's Cats has reached a point that we need a Volunteer Coordinator. We need someone who can prepare, train and engage our volunteers in the different aspects of our nonprofit cat rescue.
As a primary representative for Candy's Cats, the candidate must be well-spoken, be responsive to the ever changing needs of our rescue. If you have the gift of active listening and excellent telephone manners, this may be the opportunity for you.
The Volunteer Coordinator will "report" directly to Candy and our Adoption Coordinator. The different type of volunteers that we currently utilize are:
Foster volunteers, Adoption Venue volunteers (folks who clean the center daily, who assist on the weekend adoption events) and a number of other positions that become available.
Computer skills include having a computer with Microsoft Office. (We utilize Word, Excel.) Must be over 25, have reliable transportation. Prefer someone with previous experience with managing people.
Most of this is virtual but there will be ongoing meetings with Candy and other volunteers. As of April 2018, this is an unpaid position, and you can figure on about 2-7 hours a week (more in the beginning while learning about our organization, and depending on your willingness to do more.) Meetings are held at the office in Apopka. This is an opportunity for someone to utilize their management and people skills.
Our Volunteer Coordinator must be available to attend our quarterly board meetings and participate at events that we plan throughout the year, as well as be comfortable actively recruiting new volunteers.
If you are that person, please apply today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. I will need a good telephone number to reach you and ask that you not call me from your work number.
I want to know how you feel about cats, the idea of rescue and how you feel that your skillset will be an asset for Candy's Cats as we work to improve our rescue.
