Short Term Contract for the PBN Co-ordinator

Perthshire Businesswomen’s Network requires a co-ordinator to assist the committee in carrying out the day-to-day duties of our growing network.  The post is a 6-month supplier contract which we believe offers an excellent opportunity for the suitable candidate to become involved with one of Perth’s longest-standing business networks.

The successful candidate will:

  • Be in a position to sign a 6 month contract, billing the network monthly in arrears. This contract will be reviewed at the end of 5 months and, we hope, signed on a six monthly basis thereafter.
  • Working from home or own office provide their own computer, internet connection and telephone line.
  • Be computer literate with a working knowledge of Microsoft office and a preferred knowledge of updating a WordPress website, using mailchimp or similar mailing system and managing web-based email.
  • Have strong organisational and interpersonal skills.

The Basic Duties:

  • Collating event bookings via our web–based booking system and distributing this information to members and committee on a timely basis.
  • Managing the email: answering members’ e-mail communication or forwarding it to committee members for action, deleting spam / irrelevant mail, identifying and sorting members’ stories for forwarding to committee and/or membership or for placing on the website.
  • Reformatting Microsoft Word based text into a Mailchimp newsletter AND e-mailing members with the Newsletter and event news, both of which to be carried out monthly.
  • Administering and updating the WordPress website and blog:  to include uploading pre-written copy and suitable photographs, proof-reading these and linking to other appropriate websites
  • Liaising with the working groups and committee to ensure all information held on the website is current
  • Any other duties within reason that the committee requires and / or the smooth running of the network dictates
  • Any duties the successful candidate believes would enhance the network’s service to its members
  • All duties must be carried out with the network’s monthly deadlines

We would require this person to be, or to be willing to become, a member of PBN.  There is no requirement for this person, as part of the role, to attend committee meetings, or indeed the monthly networking meetings but we would hope that they would be an active member using PBN to promote their own business / services.
