About this opportunity

Seeking energetic outgoing personality who loves talking to the general public and sharing information about PTSD Dogs to assist in building our profile and encourage support. We need you to be a dog lover, not mind early mornings and genuinely care about people who have served in front line roles such as Military, or front line emergency services such as Ambulance, Fire Brigade or Police but now suffer from PTSD due to this role.

Males and females and people from all cultures and backgrounds are welcome to apply.

Volunteers need to obey the rules of all stallholders at Eumundi Markets.

Position requires overseeing the stall setup, manning and being available for enquiries by members of the public and visits from PTSD dog members who are welcomed to participate each week. You will also fill in a simple form to record activities. Financial responsibility for accountability of collection tins and raffle tickets will be expected at all times.

Breaks can be negotiated with other volunteers manning the stall each day.
