Description

APPLICATIONS CLOSE FRIDAY, 10TH AUGUST

Thoroughbred Breeders Victoria (TBV) is a growing, membership-based organisation helping to market and promote the state’s thoroughbred breeding industry.

TBV is seeking a self-motivated Executive Officer who has the ability to think-outside-the-box and work independently.

You won’t be doing the same thing every day, you will get to travel interstate for horse sales and there is flexibility if you occasionally need to work from home. Weekend work will be required from time to time.

The Executive Officer will undertake a number of key tasks including:

  • Marketing of TBV and its members through social media, the TBV website and a weekly e-newsletter
  • Identifying and implementing innovative marketing opportunities for the Victorian breeding industry
  • Membership administration & inquiries
  • Organisation of industry networking, awards and sales-based events
  • Development of stakeholder relationships with organisations such as Racing Victoria, sales companies, the State Government and other racing/breeding organisations
  • Management and development of sponsorships
  • Visits to breeding farms around Victoria and attending the odd raceday
  • Administration of TBV Committee meetings
  • Assist with budget management
  • Other tasks as required by the TBV Committee

Things you will definitely need:

  • A knowledge of the thoroughbred breeding industry
  • A strong level of marketing skills particularly in writing, event planning and sponsorship
  • Ability to develop and maintain working relationships with individuals and organisations
  • A developed understanding of social media particularly Twitter, Instagram and Facebook
  • A working understanding of Mailchimp and WordPress would also be useful but is not compulsory

Just some of the benefits:

  • Working at the centre of Victoria’s thoroughbred breeding industry
  • A Flemington office co-located with Racing Victoria and other peak industry bodies
  • Access to internal gym and car parking
Only registered members can apply for jobs.
