President - Ballarat Toy Library

Family Services Regular - more than 6 months Ballarat VIC

About this opportunity

The Toy Library has been operational for over 40 years within Ballarat. We are a 100% volunteer service run entirely by members for members, providing the Ballarat and wider regional communities with an extensive collection of toys and educational experiences focusing but not limited to birth-8 years.

Currently over a hundred families use our service and we are open Tuesday and Sunday mornings as well as providing a Click and Collect Service which has come about due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

The Toy Library ethos is deeply rooted in providing a way for individuals to become part of a like-minded community offering qualities toys at a fraction of the price of buying new, with the added bonus of having a positive environmental impact. Our moto is “Playing to learn, Playing for fun, A year’s worth of toys for the price of just one!”

We have a small committee consisting of a President, Treasurer, Secretary and four other committee members. A commitment to a 12-month contract if possible would be ideal.

The responsibilities of the role include:

  • Overseeing the complete running of the Toy Library.

  • Working closely with the Treasurer to track all monies incoming and outgoing, e.g memberships, rent etc.

  • Working closely with the Secretary to understand and keep up-to-date on all Policies and Procedures including Toy Library Australia guidelines.

  • Liaising with both the CEO and Reception of BGT (building owners). Conducting committee meetings (monthly) AGM (Annually).

  • Keeping track of stock and the overall presentation of the Library.
