Pet Food Bank Operation Coordinator/Administrator

  • Cheltenham location
  • Part time approx. 24 hrs per week with an opportunity to become full-time
  • Do a job that matters

Pets of the Homeless Australia (POTH) is a Not-for-Profit organisation that provides food, veterinary care and other support to the pets of people experiencing or facing homelessness. We believe in keeping pets and humans together through difficult times.

We are looking for our right-hand person to run our office and warehouse, and co-ordinate our pet food bank.  POTH is a small organisation, and whilst this role reports directly to the CEO, we are looking for a confident self-starter with great communications skills, who does not mind working, at times, in an environment by themselves.  The role requires a can-do attitude and the ability to wear multiple hats and jump in to assist with whatever is needed.

The role includes but is not limited to:

  • Developing and maintaining general office/warehouse policies, systems, and processes.
  • Liaising with Community Partner organisations for the distribution of pet food and supplies.
  • Recruiting and facilitating teams of volunteers who inspect food donations and pack pet food and supplies for distribution to Community Partner organisations.
  • Coordinate warehouse induction covering OH&S to new volunteers and be the primary contact point for volunteers.
  • Managing stock in consideration of expiration dates of pet foods and veterinary medication, opened packages and spoilage, packing bags of food, and quality control of donations that may not be compliant with donation policy.
  • Inspect and maintain the warehouse and equipment regularly, and oversee general maintenance as needed.
  • Prepare reports for the Board as required.

We are looking for a person who is passionate about the Pets of the Homeless mission and someone who can build positive working relationships with volunteers and other stakeholders.  Whilst previous experience working in a not for profit organisation would be well regarded, it is not essential.

Along with excellent administrative skills, you will need strong computer literacy and experience using MS Office and Google Drive and Docs.  You will be a confident user of social media platforms such that you can help contribute to POTHs social media presence and communicate with our supporters in an engaging manner.

The hours for the role are 9am-4pm Mon, Wed & Fri, and 9am-1pm on Saturdays. During these hours our office/warehouse is open to the public and you will need to be in attendance. This role can not be performed remotely. Please note, the successful applicant will need a current Australian Drivers License and be confident driving and navigating around all areas of Melbourne.  The role does involve some manual handling and climbing ladders in the warehouse, so you will need to be physically capable and comfortable to work at heights.  You will also need to undergo a police check.  Remuneration for the role is $30/hour inc. super, and salary packaging options are available..

If you would like to work in a pet friendly environment in a role where you can really make a difference in our community, please send us your resume and a cover letter telling us about yourself and why youd like to work with Pets of the Homeless.
