Hiring full time shelter manager or couple starting ASAP when the borders open to Vietnam.
We are looking for an on-site manager for the animal shelter and our programs for Hoi An. We are looking for someone who can help us transition our work in the shelter to full time veterinary work rather than process new intakes of cats and dogs. The role requires an extremely reliable and hard working team player who has a minimum of 1 year experience working in an animal shelter and with basic veterinary care. This is an ideal position for a vet nurse ready to get out of the confines of the clinic and put their knowledge to use. The candidate will be responsible for our 35 rescued cats, dogs, pigs, hedgehogs, and chickens daily with opportunities to contribute to our social media/marketing, fundraising, human resource recruitment and management, and financial management. Must have experience living and working in difficult countries like Vietnam (and have an understanding of animal care in low resource environments- this is NOT negotiable). Ability to drive a motorbike (or learn quickly) required. One year minimum commitment. Short term assignments are not valuable to either the organization or staff in terms of training and capacity building for our programs. There is so much to learn about Vietnam, the region, and where we fit in the animal rights movement as a vegan, foreign organization working in the veterinary and rescue fields. It is important to really dig in and commit to the time it takes to develop your understanding of our work and how we can best help animals in the situation we are in, something that cannot be done without a long term commitment. The weather can be very rainy or very hot, sometimes absolutely stunning though, and the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Onsite accommodations with your own bedroom and shared bathroom and stipend available . 30-40 hour work week, 5 and half days a week.
Admin, fundraising, language and media skills a big plus but not a requirement.
We need applicants to arrive as soon as our current shelter manager leaves when the border are open again.
Please message us for more information and share post with anyone you think might be interested. Send your CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
