Furry Friends Animal Rescue QLD
We are seeking applications from skilled IT Professionals who would like to volunteer and contribute towards the work of a not-for-profit that promotes animal welfare.
Are you are skilled in IT Applications and database management? If so, this is a great opportunity to add value to a trusted not- for- profit organisation and assist in saving the lives of homeless pets.
Furry Friends Animal Rescue Organisation QLD (FFARQ) is a not-for-profit organisation that promotes animal welfare by providing temporary foster homes for homeless pets, adopting them to qualified homes. FFARQ operates remotely, with animals being carefully placed with volunteer Foster Carers until they are adopted.
Our aim is to desex, vaccinate, microchip and where necessary, rehabilitate companion animals whilst they are in the safety and comfort of a loving foster home. This all happens before offering them for adoption to suitable forever homes.
Our desire is to minimise the large number of animals euthanised every year in pounds and shelters. We want to educate the general public of the importance of responsible pet ownership and make them aware of the importance of desexing. We want to help reduce the numbers of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens which adds to the already overcrowded pounds and shelters.
This role is responsible for assisting the implementation and ongoing support of our IT system, Shelter Manager. This role will also work closely with our Foster Carers and Admin Team to resolve their queries related to data entry, admin tasks and any IT related functions.
Key responsibilities will include:
All applicants must be able to commit between 5-10 hours per week to the role and be available to attend the fortnightly team meeting (currently Wednesday evening 8:00 pm QLD time over the teleconferencing platform Zoom). Whilst working hours are flexible, responsiveness to both organisational needs as well as candidates is crucial in order to attract and recruit selected talent.
In return, this is a great opportunity to gain experience working within a virtual team environment, whilst making a direct and positive impact on the lives of homeless pets.
Interested? We would love to hear from you!
All applicants must have the right to live and work in Australia.
This role requires a minimum commitment of 5-10 hours per week for 6 months.
