Banks Peninsula TC All-Rounder Needed

We’re looking for an experienced all-rounder who has a flair for event management, enjoys being creative with marketing and likes to keep financials organised.

Here at Banks Peninsula Trotting Club, we host 6 race meetings a year at our racetrack at Motukarara. Our race days are centered around the excitement of fast track harness racing and provide a great day out for the whole family. We’re extremely proud of our club and what we’ve achieved over the years and we’re looking for someone who can share our passion for all things harness racing.

This role will be guided by and work in collaboration with our volunteer committee to ensure our club’s success. It’s an all-encompassing role with ownership spanning across marketing and social media; planning and managing race-day events and financial and administration management. This position will also be responsible for all secretary duties associated with the club including attending monthly committee meetings; responding to all club enquiries and preparing timely meeting minutes.

It goes without saying that you’ll be an ambitious self-starter who is happy to manage your workload and work autonomously from home. You’ll be familiar with Microsoft office programmes and eager to develop social media marketing channels to promote our club.

With our races falling mainly within the spring/summer seasons, there are peaks and troughs in workload across the year. Therefore, the role will be remunerated based on a 20-hour working week.
