Do you have some extra time in your days that you could dedicate to helping ex-racehorses? Are you passionate about retired racehorses? We are looking for 3 serious superstars to add to our team of running PARR. A work from home/on-the-go job. This is a volunteer position but the rewards in your heart are priceless and you will be on the team of a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization that dedicates all it's time, energy, and funds to these horses!
We need to add to the team for PA Racehorse Rehoming, Rescue, and Rehabilitation. The very small team of volunteers we have, who have started and grown PARR, all have full time careers and struggle to balance doing their day jobs and running PARR (successfully) while finding time to sleep at the end of the day. As PARR grows, so do the duties that need tended to. One of our board members who has been trying to "do it all", needs to take a step back as their own career is taking up more and more time, and find some talented and dedicated people to take over a majority of their various duties. PARR can only be as successful as our team of volunteers, and with the growth we have had it isn't something only two people can run on their own anymore. Adding 3 people to take these duties over would help our program immensely, and since we are splitting this into 3 positions allow each person to put their focus into each category, rather than one person trying to multi-task sub-par.
This is not a paid position as PARR is run 100% by volunteers so please do not apply if you are looking for a paid position. Any money that comes into the program goes to the horses, their care/bills/feed, or costs involved with keeping the program running. Typically you will spend a total of anywhere from 1 to 3 hours a day on PARR, depending on your position and if a busy or slow day.
We are thinking we could separate the positions to these three areas:
Horse Listings / Facebook / More Tech-Savvy Stuff:
Manage horse listings on FB page, Writing & Posting Ads (post pictures/video sent to you usually via text), Update Ads (with updated info, pics, video links etc). Share/Post For-Sale horses in some of the sales-horse facebook groups, answer some questions/comments on Ads via Facebook.
**Requirements: Somewhat tech savvy (facebook, texting, messenger, e-mail, Pages phone app)
Applications / Messages & E-Mail / Paperwork:
Review Applications, Check References, Answer FB Messages / Comments / E-Mails. Keep any signed paperwork on file/e-mailed for sales etc., help point people to horses that are suitable.
**Requirements: Need to have experience with selling horses and knowledge of what may or may not be a good match between horse/buyer etc, to the extent of suitability and what buyer needs)
Events / Fundraising / Marketing / Paperwork
Help come up with ideas for fundraising, ways to raise donations for our rescue, coordinate volunteers for events, share posts on Facebook, organize volunteers to sit at booths at shows/events, anything that can help! A lot of freedom with creativity here. Keeping track of paperwork for the events/donations gathered etc.
**Requirements: Creative, experience with this type of thing is a bonus, following requirements for 501(c)3 non-profits in regards to ways we can raise donations and keeping track of the donations at events etc. (We do have someone on the team who creates flyers/graphic design/layouts & artwork for events, fundraisers, marketing, and manages the website so those duties would be covered, you would just have to be in contact with them for what needed to be made).
