The Donkey Sanctuary Ireland is one of Ireland’s largest animal welfare organisations, offering care and protection to donkeys across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. We are working for a world where donkeys and mules live free from suffering, and their contribution to humanity is fully valued. We are achieving this by transforming the quality of life for donkeys, mules and people through greater understanding, collaboration and support, and by promoting lasting, mutually life-enhancing relationships.

We have an excellent opportunity for an experienced and proactive administrator to join our busy Farms department. Possessing an excellent attention to detail, you will provide an effective administration service to the Head of Farms – Ireland and oversee the day to day coordination of the Farm Maintenance Team.

You will maintain manual and computerised records and collate end of month data for the Ireland Farms, ensuring accurate records of statistic and summaries are submitted. In addition, you will support the Head of Farms –Ireland and Farm supervisors in the recruitment of the farm team and will ensure all essential and mandatory training is completed and up to date. Excellent communication, IT and prioritising skills are essential, as is the ability to maintain a high level of accuracy while dealing with a number of conflicting demands and deadlines. Experience, and an understanding, of building trades or agriculture is desirable.


If you feel you have the qualities, skills and experience to fulfil this varied, rewarding and vital role, and would like to be part of the evolving program of change taking place within the charity, we would love to hear from you. This is a part time, permanent contract working 30 hours per week which can be worked over 4 or 5 days.

Closing date for completed applications: Wednesday 23 June 2021.
