Thursday, November 19th, 2020

Our amazing client, Community Trust of Mid and South Canterbury are seeking a very experienced “Jack of all Trades”, and experience in them all is preferred but not essential!

Community Trust leave a big footprint wherever they go in the Community as they are the main source of funding for so many well deserved organisations, many of whom would be struggling to operate without their support.

Given their small team and busy workload, a new restructured role of Operations Coordinator has evolved.

Not only will you be the “Window into the business” on reception, but you will also support the operational activities of the organisation.  This role is an ideal lifestyle role – 25 hours per week, Monday through to Friday and based in the Timaru CBD.

  • Suppliers and tradespeople
  • Government and community funding agencies
  • Visitors/general public

Key Responsibilities and Tasks

1. Reception and Customer Service

2. Administration

3. Accounting Services/Payroll to Trial Balance (Xero)

4. Grants Management Support

5. Public Relations and Promotional Visit Support

7. Property Management Support

We see the right person for this role as coming from an Accounting/Administration/Marketing support background, but with the value add skills of website administration and the maturity and commonsense of an individual confident in their vocational offering.  There may be the odd time that you will need to step up and fill in for the Community Relations Manager or the CEO!

A copy of the Job Description will only be sent to those who may be considered for shortlisting for an interview.

Any previous applicants for any Community Trust roles will be reconsidered, as long as the above skill set aligns with your experience.

This role will close to all applicants by 5.00 pm Tuesday  24 November.  No late applicants will be considered.
